Masculine Birthday Card

If you need help coming up with ideas for masculine cards, just open up your pack of Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper from the Summer Mini Catalog, and you have 12 sheets of paper that will inspire you.  Don't have this paper yet?  You have until August 31st to purchase it!

The card starts with a base of Basic Gray Cardstock, followed by matte layers of the Nautical Expedition DSP layered on top of Whisper White cardstock.  The wish big sentiment is from another one of my new sets, "Bring on the Cake".  It was punched out using the Decorative Label punch and placed onto a cut and corner punched piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, and put on with dimensionals.  The bottom corner looked a little bare, so I added three neutral brads, a nice embellishment that still keeps that masculine look.

The following were used:
Cardstock:  Basic Gray #121044, Whisper White #100730, Cherry Cobbler #119685
Designer Series Paper:  Nautical Expedition #122343 (Summer Mini)
Ink:  Basic Gray #109120
Stamp Set:  Bring on the Cake #121899 wood or #121958
Punches:  Decorative Label #120907, 3/16" Corner #119871
Accessories:  Dimensionals #104430
Embellishment:  Neutral Brads #119736
