Masculine Birthday Cards

Hello Friends!

Today I would like to share a couple of masculine birthday cards that I recently made.  I used the new Urban paper collection by Close To My Heart along with Sapphire, Glacier, Fern, Poppy, Chocolate and Saffron cardstock. I love how the patterned papers look like sheets of industrial metal and blueprints–perfect for masculine cards!

The sentiment block and stamped image comes from the Artistry bundle, the newest Cricut cartridge from Close To My Heart.  The gears and the Roman numeral border can be found on the Artiste cartridge by CTMH.  Triangle Durable studs add the perfect finishing touch.

For the sentiments on the inside of the cards, I used a stamp set called Birthday Funnies.  This is a stamp set which can only be purchased when you earn Hostess Rewards.  I think the sentiments are so cute and I can see using this set a LOT for future projects!

Shine on, everyone!   Laurie
