Today I played along at Stamping 411 and made a simple, masculine birthday card for my fiance, Galen. He turned 28 today! He's catching up to me ;) LOL
Here is the sketch...
Stampin Up has some great masculine but lovely design papers such as the one I used, Elegant Soiree, but there is also Woodland Walk and Blueberry Crisp. (check them out on pages 173, 174 and 175 in the IBC (Idea Book & Catalog).
I distressed the edges of my card to give it a little rough look to it and finished it off with a button in Crumb Cake (from Mini Catalog) and a little bit of the Baja Breeze seam binding. I love the seam binding, and they come in great colors! I also paper pieced the candles...a little awkward since they are so small, but they really finish the cake!
Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment if you have the time! :)
