A Masculine Birthday Card


I needed a masculine birthday card for this week. I personally think the stamp set, Delicate branches from Inkadinkado is perfect for this kind of card. I also wanted to make a card for Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge of last Friday. (I know, I am a little late, but hey I have been very busy shipping out the new Spellbinder and JustRite stamps---smile)

I ordered this Doolittle paper to see if I like it and I really do. I am into stripes and black and white and this paper fits my needs perfectly.

I used the little Happy Birthday stamp from Just Rite and stamped it 3 times across the white
strip of Neenah card stock. I thought it made a nice statement.

Since this card is for a man, I didn't add any ribbon or embellishments. I think the lone bird sitting in the branches will impress him, don't you?
