Nature's Birthday


I don't know about you, but I often find it challenging to create masculine cards. There are only so many fish and car stamps out there which are often the standard for male cards.  I found that many of the new images in the Garden Journal collection inspired me and it was actually quite easy to design this card for my husband's birthday.  I love these images in earth tone colors against the pistachio shimmer card. I stamped Fern Print (C1357), Budding Branch (D1360), Spring Branch (D1363) and finally Soaring Bird (C1366) onto the Memory Box textured cream cardstock. The inks I used were: Adirondack Oregano, Memories Soft Sand, Brilliance Chocolate and Brilliance Black Lightening.  I added a layer of torn pattern paper from the Frond 6x6 paper pack and finished the card with two copper brads in the top corners. 

Enjoy the weekend.
