Masculine Birthday Card

The most difficult part of this card was weaving the papers!  The sentiment is by Stampin' Up!, and is stamped in Coffee Bean Brilliance ink.

I started by embossing the purple piece of cardstock with the Damask embossing folder by Darice, using my Cuttlebug.  After mounting the piece on a piece of black cardstock, I wrapped a piece of silver ribbon around the middle.  My scrap box furnished the tree papers on the left side of the card, which I cut to different lengths and layered on more black cardstock.

The circle was stamped in Versamark ink with one of the stamps from Stampin' Up!'s Baroque Motifs set (I love this one, but sadly, it's no longer available), then embossed with black embossing powder.  I cut it out with one of the Spellbinders Standard Circles Small dies.  It is layered on a scalloped circle.

To finish the card, I stamped Happy Birthday (Hero Arts) in Versamark ink and embossed it with silver embossing powder.  It is cut out with one of the Classic Rectangles Large and layered onto one of the Lattice Rectangles.

Birthday Card - Two Versions

I embossed each side of a 4.25" x 5.5." piece of white cardstock using the Dots embossing folder from the Cuttlebug Just My Type collection, then added score lines using my Martha Stewart Scoring Board.  The patterned paper is from the Linen Closet and Spring Fling paper packs by DCWV.  I used an Impress marker in Teal (#10) and a Memento marker in Rose Bud to ink my sentiments; they were attached to the card using Pop Dots.
