Masculine Birthday Card...

Tonight I have a masculine birthday card to share as I made this card a couple months ago. This card has a variety of elements and the masculine DP would work for an adult or teen boy.

I embossed the large "HB" and used my Everyday Flexible Phrases to add more words. Also to my Round Tab punch. Then taking my 1/2" circle punch to add more color under my gold brads, and lastly adding 2 colors of grosgrain ribbon.

I hope you enjoy as I'm always looking for ideas for guy/teen cards. I'm usually in the "Girly" card mode... LOL! Have a super evening and chat more again soon.... SMILES!! (Thanks for visiting!!)

I'm always looking for masculine ideas, too. I'll be posting one to my blog soon that would work well for a man. Stay tuned... ;)

I really like this. I like the patterned papers you used and how you coordinated everything else you added. I also like that you put some ribbon on there. Proof positive that it's ok to put ribbon on a guy card. Fab!
