Timely Birthday

      This is a very CAS design for a masculine birthday card.  In my family, we have long had more males than females by about 2 to 1 (although the women are catching up as the grandsons marry and have babies - go girls!!) and the birthdays pretty much fall between June and October so having a stash of masculine birthday cards is important.  This one will probably go to my son but could end up in the hands of one of the grandsons.  Now that I look at the calendar, yesterday would have been my dad's birthday.  :-D

     I wanted to keep this image as the primary focal point so I didn't even mat it or frame it.  I cut it with a QuicKutz die and layered it on top of a Spellbinders die cut, cut from black CS.  The sentiment was printed and fussy cut, then matted with black CS and fussy cut again.  No embellishments, just a flat, easy-to-mail, masculine card.


     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Yep! we were more boys than girls too, then the next lot came and girls were to the front, next lot, a mixture! funny how things go isn't it Connie?
Anyhow, I love your beautiful masculine card, love those corners too, with the fun sentiment it's a wonderful and fun card. Love it Connie.

Great masculine card. I love the image and can understand why you'd want it to shine as the focal point as you did. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas for our Birthday challenge
