Birthday for a Gentleman

I needed a masculine birthday card in a hurry and found the Sunday Stamps Challenge #176 had a great sketch.  This card is easy to make and has a really clean and simple look.

Card Base:  Crushed Curry CS cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"; score at 4-1/4".  Added pieces of True Gentleman DSP.

Sentiments:  On Very Vanilla CS I embossed the "happy" sentiment from the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folders and added the layer to the card.  The "birthday" sentiment from the Lift Me Up stamp set was stamped on Crushed Curry CS.  Since I just needed the word birthday I colored just that word with a Night of Navy marker and stamped it.  I used the Tailored Tag Punch to punch out the sentiment.  Loops of Linen Thread was added to the back of the sentiment.  It was attached to the card with Dimensionals.

The Finishing Touch:  Three Metallic Enamel Shapes were added to the birthday sentiment for a little embellishment.

This sketch is very versatile and great for using up small pieces of dsp.  Thanks for checking out this post.  Enjoy the weekend.  Be blessed and be safe.
