Manly Monday

Manly Monday here again with some great male cards. I wanted you to know that I also post cards for young males because they can be equally challenging at times. Be sure to stop by the blogs and leave them a comment. Scroll down to the end for my card too:)










Weren't those great? I hope you left comments for everyone. Nothing brightens a blogger more then comments on our creations. 

For my card this week I made a 50th birthday card for a BIL and decided to make multiple to sell at the store. The embossing folder is by Darice and the cardstock is by Stampin Up (blue), Recollections (white) and Oriental Trading Co (kraft). The numbers were cut out using the Cricut and the letters from a Quickutz die. The circles are punched out by Creative Memories punchs. I inked the numbers with Ranger Distress Inksas well as the white circle punch. The circle stamp and ink are by Stampin Up and the birthday letter stamps are by Lawn Fawn. 

Thanks for stopping by
