Lavinia Stamps "Mideela" Birthday Card

Like many paper crafters, I strunggle to make cards suitable for males, when you add to that the pressure of creating for a close family member and the need to get the card in the post, my stress levels get high. This was the situation I was in this morning, resulting in this clean looking card using Lavinia Stamps.

I used the Lavinia "Circle mask" blending four colours of elements inks (Sundance, Russet Orange, Paprika and Graphite) to create the central coloured image

I stamped the small Lavinia dragon called "Mideela" and the sentiment from the "Welsh Words" stamp set in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I added small dots of a gold shimmer gel pen to areas of the card too.


  1. A stunning masculine fantasy card,

  2. How cool is this Sam, certainly great for a male.. x

  3. This is a perfect masculine card Sam, and I love the great shading on the circle and some lovely colours too. x

  4. Wonderful card Sam, love the blending, I have the dragon stamp but have struggled to use it, this design is perfect for it, Cathy x

    1. Thanks Cathy. The dragon stamp is great, but it is one of those ones that rarely gets used as I feel it doesn't quite fit with all the pretty fairies x
