Birthday Wishes for a Guy

Hello!  I guess you could say I'm on something of a roll with guy cards lately (check here and here).  Seems the more clean-and-simple the design, the easier it is to create for men.  Today's card happens to be a birthday one, but you could easily swap out the sentiment for a Father's Day one.


Still loving my Extra Large Bird Punch by Stampin' Up! after all these years.  The foliage comes from that, done up in two shades of rust.  A tiny button, tied with vintage thread, tops them off.


For a bit more interest along the bottom, I used a swirly embossing folder (a really skinny one!).


And that's it!  I am super-pleased with how this came out.  Thanks so much for your visit today!



Stamps: Think Big Favorites #16 - PTI Paper: kraft - PTI; Cajun Craze, Really Rust, patterns - SU Ink: Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko Fibers: vintage thread Accessories & Tools: Extra Large Bird punch - SU; button; Organic Flourish embossing folder - Cuttlebug

You sure are on a creative roll when it comes to masculine cards. I am always looking forward to visit you ( geesh wish I could hop over...) And again; your posts always make me smile. This card is beautiful; I love the color scheme and design. There is subtle touch created with that swirl on the bottom of your card. Not too girlie; perfect for a man:)
Are your sales at the bridal shop still going on? I have no doubt that selling your cards is a big succes.
Hugs!

I'm so not good with the guy cards. You, on the other hand... this is perfect! I love the rich blue with the orange branch on kraft. The embossed border is a very nice finishing touch.
