Manly? yes! But I like it, too!
My youngest son, Adam, celebrated his 19th birthday yesterday....my parents are here visiting and needed a card for him so I used some leftover supplies from a class I did last week and came up with this card. I TRIED my best to get my Mom to come down to the stamp room and play with me but nope, she wasn't interested. Where did I go wrong??? lol! Anyway, this card took all of 2 minutes to make and that's only because I stamped the cake image on the outside of the envelope, too!
This card used the cake image from Voila and the sentiments are from It's Your Birthday. I used the wide Chocolate Chip grosgrain (it looks like a strip of brown cardstock in this picture) and a piece of red and white polka dot Designer Series paper from the Candy Cane series. I love using DSP on cards...it really perks them up with so little effort! I also punched out the cake image using the Scallop circle punch then used the large circle punch (punched it twice) and layered both pieces under the scallop. A little paper piercing around the scallops and it was all done!
The second photo is a picture of my now 19 year old "baby" humoring me by holding up the card to get a picture of it. Always good to do those things BEFORE you let them open their gifts while they are still "highly motivated", eh?
I am doing a Manly Men card class this Friday, May 22nd and am thinking about including something like this in the class along with some cards done with the Totally Tool and the "And Many More" stamp sets. What do you think? Is this "manly enough"?
