Paper Lace II/Mini Monograms Masculine Birthday Card

My son has a birthday coming up soon.  I have a hard time with masculine cards but I knew exactly what I wanted to do for him.  He called me a couple of weeks ago and said, "Mom, you need to download this app, Wordfeud, to your Ipod.  It's like scrabble and we can play online."  Little did I know how addictive it is.  He gave me the game names of a few of our friends and before long I was involved in 4 games at one time.  One of the girls told me that she, her Mom and her sister get so aggravated with him because he has no mercy.  He has none with me either.  It runs in the family.  Here is his card.
 I used Paper Lace ll for the Happy Birthday sentiment - Page  53, Lace 1 feature.  I cut it at 4.5 and decided it was too big so I cut it in half and put it to the side of the card.  I found the Scrabble Prayer on the internet and thought it was so appropriate.

I went to and screenprinted their web page to get the phone image.    

On the inside, I applied the other half of the Paper Lace ll image.  I cut out letters using Mini-Monograms.  I wanted my message to look similar to Wordfeud letters.  He will have to decipher it.  I couldn't get everything to intersect but you get the gist of what I'm trying to do.  My message is "To my favorite Son, I love you."  I only have one son and one daughter.

This was a fun card to make and I hope it will inspire you.  Thank you for visiting today and we hope you will come back tomorrow.  We look forward to your visits and comments.  God Bless You!!!  Peggy


  1. So Great! I love how you mixed so many different patterns, but they all work so well together. What a great card!!!

  2. Peggy, it may be male card but it is adorable. He's gonna love it. I know what you mean by "no mercy". I have 4 sons and I have never had any mercy from them. Also any time I happen to say something wrong, it never gets by them,ever.

  3. Peggy,
    Great card, ya see, this is why you get published. Your cards are always so pretty
    Hugs, Stacy
