Masculine "Happy Birthday" Card

Hi there! I’m back today to share a masculine “Happy Birthday” card. I’m pretty sure it’s my 1st masculine card... well besides the It’s a Boy Card I made last week ;).

To make it, I paired Lawn Fawn’s Bake Me a Cake Stamp Set with Sassafras’ Monstrosity line and came out with this:

I added a 7Gypsie tape/ribbon border for funness (is, that a word?!?). I used the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to make the ruffles, and then glued that to the card using Glue Dots (the tape/ribbon was sticky, but just didn’t seem sticky enough). I colored in the cake stand and candles with Copics, and I finished the card off with a handmade banner (the “Happy Birthday sentiment is also from Bake Me a Cake) and a Papertrey Ink Button. My boss’ B-Day is in May and I think it’ll be perfect for him.

Short. and sweet. Hope you have a lovely weekend. One of the attorneys in my office hooked us up with tickets to the Florida Panters (Hockey) game for Saturday. Those are the only plans I have so far. I also just picked up April’s kit from Paper Niche - so you know I’ll be getting crafty!!!
