Masculine Birthday Card

I saw this layout on a blog by Stampin' Up! demostrator Mary Fish, and liked it for a masculine birthday card.  Each month I try to have one or two masculine designed cards for the ladies to choose from at my stamp camps, because that seems the hardest for us to come up with.  Thanks Mary for your inspiration.

My card base of Whisper White was layered with Crumb Cake and Bashful Blue cardstock.  The Bashful Blue layer was embossed with the Stripes embossing folder.  The Designer Series Paper is Well Worn, a great set for masculine cards, and this small piece was layered on a piece of Early Espresso.  Another piece of Cajun Craze cardstock was added for contrast.  Early Espresso 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon brought it all together, and  a 5/16" Neutral Brad added some embellishment.  The sentiment was inked in Early Espresso ink and punched out with the Extra Large Oval punch and placed on top of a Crumb Cake Label Framelit.

The following were used:
