Masculine Birthday Card

I created this card at my father's request for a co-workers boyfriends birthday. I had made all our Holiday cards and when she received hers she liked it so much that she still has it sitting out on her shelf. So my dad told her he would see if I had one he could give to her. I haven't made to many masculine cards and so had to come up with something that was masculine and hopefully she will like this card. 

I started out by choosing my designer series paper I had a choice between the Well Worn Series or the Mocha Morning. I decided the Well worn would work best, I then picked out my background card stock of Not Quite Navy & Cajun Craze. After which I began to play with the layout & then went on to add the punch shapes with silver brads as studs and then my sayings. I think this card would also work well for a cowboy theme. 

On the inside I decided that I wanted to continue the well worn feel so, my saying was stamped with the image not quite completely covered in ink.  I then took my Tea Stain & Navy Distressing essintials ink pads and just swiped them across the Very Vanilla Card Stock and around the edges, going in different directions and not covering the paper completely. I did the same to my envelope and added a piece of Well Worn DSP as an envelope liner to have a coordinating envelope.

I hope you all enjoy!
