A Simple Happy Birthday

Today I'm going to share how I created a simple masculine birthday card.  Amidst all the Thanksgiving and Christmas cards being made, we still need to create birthday cards as well.  I have 6 within 5 weeks and 3 of us are all on the same day!

I love that this Happy Birthday die is so big that you can use it for the focal piece of your card.  I die cut 5 pieces of black Bazzill paper, glued them together and then covered it in Tim Holtz distress glitter.  I call it my man glitter because it's just a smidge less sparkly than girl glitter.  LOL!!

For this card I've used papers from the French Twist 6" x 6" paper pad.  I die cut a bigger tag using the Posydoodles Basics Tag dies and also a 2nd piece using black cardstock to layer them.  Then I tied up 2 bows using wax cord and seam binding to complete that piece.

Do you have trouble with masculine cards?  If so, I hope I've inspired you to create something similar.  I always say if you have a stencil, ink, some dies, buttons and twine you can create something quite easily.  Yet easy isn't so easy sometimes.  LOL!

Thank you for stopping by!
