Manly Birthday

The week after my card events, I will be posting one card each day. You saw the sneak peeks here. Now you get to view the whole card! I design 5 cards, so Monday-Friday you will get a sweet treat!

So here's card #1: A Manly Birthday Card

When I make a card for a man I normally make it pretty simple with clean lines and very few elements to "Wow" them...ha ha! Let's face it, most men just read the card and don't save it to re-create it like women do!

While this one was simple and easy, I love that is showcases one of the new big buttons you can get from the Holiday Mini (out September 1st)! It also uses the awesome Newsprint DSP...

Newsprint DSP (#117166 $9.95, page 175 of the IB&C).

Most patterns of this DSP pack are very manly. So this would be a great pack to get and create away for the men in your life!

Like I stated above, you will find that big button in the NEW Holiday Mini that you can start ordering from on September 1st! That's just 2 days away!!!

Big Designer Buttons (48 Buttons for $8.95)
#121002:Deck the Hall (Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, and Crumb Cake)
#121718: Candy Cane (Garden Green, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, and Real Red)

I really like the simplicity of this card and the way the kraft works with the green and newsprint paper. Nice job!! (And--I love anything with buttons!!)
