Masculine Happy Birthday

Hi all,

Here’s some birthday inspiration for the men in your life.  I was very pleased with how this card came out.

For this card I used patterned papers from the Earth’s Palette collection from Hot Off the Press, another one of those oldies but goodies in my collection.

For the focal I used the Guiding Light set  by Gina K. Designs.  This set is great for all sorts of nautical themed cards, which is a great theme for masculine cards.   I stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and added a copper brad in the center.  I used some antique linen distress ink to tone down the stark whiteness of the white card stock.  I used my circle nestabilities dies from Spellbinders to cut out the focal and the brown paper behind it.

For the sentiment I used the Essential Messages set from Hero Arts.  I stamped it with the same brown ink on white card stock and used the antique linen again to tone down the white to match the focal image.  Finally I added the brown fiber (not exactly ribbon, but it’s not twine or embroidery thread either, not sure what to call it).  I love the texture that it adds to this card.

Thanks for stopping by today!
