What a busy month I have had. Unfortunately it left me with no time to create or share anything with you for way too long.
I am forced to be home all day today with my vehicle in the shop for the day, so I am taking advantage of the free time!
Lee celebrated his 46th birthday last month, so I whipped up a special card for him.
I had ordered some stuff from SU a while ago, and thought one of the masculine papers from the Adventure Bound Paper Stack (6 1/2" x 4 1/2" sheets) would be great for a more manly card.
This card is an odd size, measuring at 7" tall x 4 1/2" wide.
I created this card by cutting the top portion of the patterned paper off at 2 1/8" and adhered it onto my card base.
Then I added the BIRTHDAY die cut letters directly below the patterned paper.
I added the bottom portion of the patterned paper directly below the BIRTHDAY letters, then trimmed the excess off of the bottom. That way I knew it would fit perfectly.
I created a simple banner for the HAPPY die cut letters and adhered it only on the left edge.
I stamped the criss-cross stitching, then popped the right side of the banner with some 3D foam tape.
Lastly I added a wooden leaf shape. Done. Simple and so easy. Perfect masculine card.
Happy creating! :)
