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,
