Masculine Birthday

Masculine birthday cards seem to be harder than others – why is that?  I guess it’s just harder if I don’t get to use flowers! I need several masculine birthday cards at the moment so I’m thrilled to have On the Sea to help me out!  Here’s one –

This card uses a 4 x 5.25 piece of the Newsprint DSP.  I stamped the background image off to the side and then sponged the edge in Crumb Cake and then Early Espresso and then spritzed it with Basic Black.  The Basic Black card stock strip was punched with the Spiral Border punch, distressed it and attached it to the side with some yummy Baker’s Twine tied around it.  The Cherry Cobbler seam binding was a last minute addition – a little more color. 

Happy Birthday is from Bring on the Cake (I’m mixing my minis!)  For the inside of this card I added another piece of the Newsprint DSP – sponged but not spritzed.  Now I can add my inside greeting and have lines to write on!

Stamp sets – One the Sea, Bring on the Cake
card stock – Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Newsprint DSP
Ink – Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Etc – Cherry Cobbler Baker’s twine, Spiral punch, Cherry Cobbler seam binding, brass brads, spritzer

Now to get it in the mail!  Enjoy – Hugs, Fran
