80

I was asked to make a Dad's 80th birthday card for a colleague at work in 'masculine' colours and came up with this...




I've used a very large 8x8 Kraft base to make the card stand out amongst the shop bought cards. The papers are from Papermania's Spots and Stripes metallic capsule collection - I totally love these colours and patterns. The layout is fairly simple but I think the dull gold matting makes it look 'special' enough for such an important milestone birthday.

I've entered this card into the challenges at:

Fab N Funky Challenges - masculine
Crafting For All Seasons - milestone celebrations
The Male Room - use letters or numbers
The Paper Shelter - for the boys

Thanks for popping in

  4. I love your masculine card. Would you let me showcase your card and share a link to your blog post in what I call Manly Monday? It's a post on my blog where I share masculine cards (of all ages) as inspiration for my readers. If you are interested, please email me a direct link to your card so I can find it at grohcm at gmail dot com and I will add you to the lineup for the following Monday. I hope to hear from you.
