Masculine Birthday Blocks

  I spent some time in the stamp room this afternoon after doing some yard work.  We had fun with the piles of leaves and the warmer day.

  I combined 2 challenges to make this simple masculine birthday card.  I brought in some details by embossing; with the Big Shot and the Simply Scored board.

  The colors are from Colour Me! and the layout is from Friday Mashup.

  I used the arrows embossing folder for my Tangelo Twist and Night of Navy blocks and then I stamped the Happy Birthday from Endless Birthday Wishes.  I used the Simply Scored to make lines across the card lifting up the stylus when I came to the sentiment.

  I rounded the bottom corners and added some silver brads for the final details.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

Stamps: Endless Birthday Wishes

Ink: Night of Navy

Paper: Night of Navy, Tangelo Twist, Kraft

Accessories: Arrows embossing folder, Simply Scored, corner rounder, silver brads (retired)
