cards, Masculine


Last week I needed to create a 50th Birthday card for my Brother-in-law.  What to do???  Masculine cards are always a dilemma.  I went through my “saved card ideas”.  We all have one (or more) of those files don’t we??  The layout was inspired by this card by Debra Currier.  Of course I couldn’t use Extreme Elements now but ‘Clockworks’ was a good substitute.  A racy red sportscar is a good addition for a 50th.  Unfortunately it wasn’t a real one though! 🙂  The ’50’ was done on the Bigshot with ‘Timeless Type Alphabet’ now retired.  I punched a circle with the large circle on the Owl punch and punched a centre hole with a small hole punch.  I threaded some Linen Thread through it to create a tag.  The edge of the tag was sponged with ink.


While I was on a roll I created a similar card to use for another Male Birthday.  They can always come in handy.  This time I used the “Wish Big” from ‘Word Play’.


Here are the 2 together.  I did use Sahara Sand on both these cards but they do look a little different.  Possibly the lighting – or my bad photography!


Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a good day.  I hope my Aussie friends are surviving the heat.  It has been hot and looks like it will continue all week.  Stay cool 🙂

Come and visit again soon,
