I have two brothers and their birthdays are in January. I needed some inspiration so I got on Pinterest to see if I could find some masculine cards. I've never spent a lot of time on Pinterest but I did that day. It is a wonderful resource to find inspiration and to display your creations. This is my take on a couple of cards I saw that day. I hope my brothers will appreciate them.
I embossed both card bases with the Cuttlebug Birthday Embossing Folder. The paper is Blue Awning by K & Co.
I used the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge for the Label on this one,then inked everything with Outdoor Denim Ink by Close To My Heart.
On this one, I used the Cricut Artiste Cartridge for the flags. The label & sentiment was made with the Silhouette Cameo. I love how you can add your sentiment to a label, then print and cut it. Everything was inked with a chestnut colored ink.
Now if you know anything about me, you know that I have a hard time with masculine cards. So much so that I sent my grandson in CA a store bought card for his birthday in November thinking it doesn't matter to him. When he was home for Christmas he let me know how disappointed he was. He said he had saved all my handmade cards through the years and then I send him a store bought one. I promised I would do that again. OOOPS!!
Thank you for visiting with us. God Bless You!!!! Peggy
