A Masculine Birthday Card

Masculine birthday cards are not something I get to make very often.  Rather surprising when you factor in I have three sons and seven grandsons.  I think that's because of the three sons two birthdays are in October and one is in December.  Of the seven grandsons three are in January, one is in February, one is in July, one is in October and one is in November. That bunches most of them together so I don't get to stretch them out throughout the year.  Now that I'm volunteering to make sure each resident in my building gets a birthday card, I'll get to make more masculine ones.  I'm looking forward to it.


Stamp Sets:  Simply Sketched - sentiment (retired), Traveler; Inks:  Pear Pizzazz, Tuxedo Black Memento; Card Stock:  Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack (retired), Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  1/8" Silver Mini Brads, Ticket Corner Punch (retired), SNAIL Adhesive, Dimensionals, Paper Piercing Tool, Stampin' Trimmer

The colors I used are from the current Colour Me...! Challenge.

    1. Thanks, Angel! They are but I find if I keep them simple it is easier. :-)
