Card: Masculine Happy Birthday Cupcake

Happy Monday!!  I actually made some cards on Saturday -- woo hoo!!  It's been a while since I had the time. :)

I wanted something more masculine... I never seem to have enough masculine birthday cards around to give to my male family members or husband!

I distressed the Smokey Slate cardstock by running my small scissors along the edges, then crumpling up the paper and smoothing it back out.

I saw this week's Friday Mashup Eat Cake and was inspired.   I love this color combo! 

Hope you have a great week!

Stamps: Create a Cupcake, You're Amazing

  1. Love the crisp white chevron background in contrast with the crumpled gray and washi- nice touch! I love the different colors on the HB sentiment- it showcases the challenge wonderfully. TFS at the Friday Mashup this week;)

  2. Fantastic masculine card! I think the Chevron embossing folder really helps everything pop and give it that "manly" feel, I love it!
