One of my nephews recently had a birthday and of all my nieces and nephews, he's one of the few that really looks forward to the cards I send to see what I've created for him. To be honest, the actual day of his birthday kind of slipped right by me (my bad!!).....so, this is a belated birthday card.
I wanted something masculine, of course....he just turned 20, and I wanted something easy to mail and something that was quick and easy.....after all buttons and bows really aren't going to impress him! This sample features all retired items (except for the cardstock)!
Both the retired Large and Small Star Punches were used to create the stars and laid out onto a piece of Natural White CS. When each of the stars were adhered, it was run through my Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. (He's gonna think this is so cool!) The Happy Birthday image in the center is from the now-retired Engraved Greeting....it's such a perfect set for simple, masculine cards, so I just couldn't give it up! The finishing touch is the simple piece of ribbon in matching Riding Hood Red (long retired) that goes across the card.
Hope he likes it!
