Masculine Birthday


I made this birthday card for a friend who is a real outdoors person and he loves cutting firewood, so it has all the elements he can relate to. It's on a Crumb Cake card base, and the patterned paper is Wood Textures by SU!. I split the panels and placed them on a darker wood texture dsp panel and adhered it to the card base. The deer is by I.O. and the vanilla Birthday Wishes die cuts are from Gina Marie Designs. It's simple, just the way guys like cards.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Shopping our Stash SOS #350 - Yo! Dude! (masculine)



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!

I was just planning a strategy for the Yo Dude card. I see you worked it out perfectly! Excellent card. That deer die is wonderful!

Your card is not only very masculine and simple, but also so beautiful!! This wooden paper and that deer match really perfectly together in the way you put them, and pop very well from that background colour! Also the sentiment compliments beautifully all the design. Very well done!!!

WOW! Did you ever have the perfect paper for this outdoors guy. I love that you've cut the dp into strips with the dark framing between the strips. Adding the deer, was another wonderful detail and made a very handsome design! Well done, you! TFS & Hugs
