Masculine Birthday Card

As well as being Father’s Day on Sunday here in Australia, it was also my husband Alan’s birthday.

I was running way behind as I had to also make three Father’s Day cards! Anyway, the above is what I came up with.

I started with a white cardbase, and added a black mat. Using Couture Creations gold cardstock, I embossed the Ultimate Crafts Timeless Garden from the Magnolia Lane Collection. (I’ve had that EF for some years now.)

After embossing it, I cut it down. It was much bigger than I needed, but the side strips may come in handy for another project.

 

I added the embossing folder, and then cut a black strip from matching cardstock used on the mat, and foiled it with gold foil and the Ultimate Crafts Happy Birthday Hotfoil Stamp. I placed that across the embossed gold cardstock.

Last but not least, I used the Couture Creations Jalopy Cut Foil and Emboss Die, and Copper foil. I added the Jalopy to the card.

It sounds complicated, but this was a fairly simple card.

I am entering this card into the Just Us Girls Word Week Challenge (Celebrate).
