Masculine 60th Birthday

This is the card I made for my brother-in-law who loves maps and geography. When my guys signed it they all admired it! That was a first! Usually they don't show too much enthusiasm for my creations. I am also happy to report that my brother-in-law liked his card!





Stamps: Toybox (map), PTI (sentiment), My Favorite Things (wood plank background)
Dies: Memory Box (large numbers)


The blue/turquoise sponged piece of card stock I found in my stash. As it was some kind of coated paper I had to heat emboss the image because it wouldn't dry. Die cut the numbers from it and from black foam. Stamped the background on a kraft card (not entirely happy with the ink I used). The rest is self explanatory, I think, but if you have any questions let me know in the comments.


Seize the Birthday "Kraft Card Base"







Have a fabulous weekend!

Be well,

Wow, this is fabulous, Susanne! The camouflaged die-cut is perfect and so masculine! I'm not surprised your brother-in-law liked it - anyone would love this!

A perfect design for a masculine card Susanne! I LOVE that kraft card-stock too with that slight wood-grain look to it, I think the ink you used has given it a more subtle look, which has turned out great! Have a wonderful weekend my friend! Love & Hugs. Hazel xx

This really is a terrific design, Susanne! Any man would love it, even if he wasn't into maps and geography! (ARE there any men who don't love maps?!) I'm not surprised all the menfolk admired it!! Hugs, Darnell

Deliciously masculine, Susanne ... a fantastic colour combo ... and such a cool image, fabulous with the camouflaged numbers! I thought the background was wood ... what a great effect from the plank stamping! Hugs, Anita :)

I think I'm losing it, Susanne... how is it I feel I already left a comment, yet it's not here? perhaps IG? you know they say the mind is the first to go!
At any rate, I'm happy you visited this morning so I'd have a reminder to return the favor... this is a magnificent card - your guys know it, and so do we! LOve that map - my guy even brings an Atlas while using the Garmin! xx
