Masculine Birthday

Hi Everyone! Do you dread those 'Man Cards' - yep me too!  Of course every now and again you have no choice but to walk down that path and try and make a non-frilly, non-decorative, non-floral masculine card.  So I decided to make a large sentiment the focus using JustRite's Grand Handwritten Sentiments and keep it clean and simple.

I've used a base of green bazzill and layered with Baked Brown Sugar and Very Vanilla that has been embossed with Spellbinders' Bricks and Bark embossing folder.  Next I've found a couple of random pieces of scrap paper in matching colours from my scrap box (don't you love finding a use for all those little pieces!) and created a couple of notched tags.  I've stamped the sentiment from Grand Handwritten Sentiments in Memento Bamboo Leaves onto Very Vanilla, matted it with Baked Brown Sugar and attached as shown.  To finish I've added three metal brads to the bottom corner.

Stamps - Grand Handwritten Sentiments (JustRite)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Baked Brown Sugar, Green Bazzill, Random DP
Ink - Memento Bamboo Leaves
Accessories - Spellbinders Bricks and Bark Embossing Folder, Metal Brads

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you are inspired to stamp!!  :)

Yes, I dread the "man" cards. Some can be really pretty in a natural sort of way, but maybe I don't have the right stamps. You aced this one, Kathy. It's just the right amount of rugged and earthy combined with fun. Very nice!
