Happy Birthday for A Uncle

Oh boy, I'm on a roll with my card making and it is so nice to in the craft room playing too!

Hi everyone, I hope your day is going well for all of you! Did you all have your forbidden treats yesterday on Fat Tuesday?

This is a card that I made for my uncle's birthday that is coming up next month. Man I do have a hard time coming up with cards for men and I hope he doesn't think this is too "kiddie" for him. As you can see it is a very clean and simple card, which sometimes are just a beautiful as others with many embellishments on. I'm sure I saw a card similar to this on the web, but darn it, I can't remember where, so I can't claim it as my idea, but was inspired by someone else.

I used the new edgelit die and embossing folder from Stampin Up. Boy, these new toys really add and extra touch for very little effort to your cards, Love them!! After I had cut and embossed, I adhered a strip of dsp underneath and than reattached the cut off piece, than trimmed any excess off, just wanted to add some more color to the front.

All products are from Stampin' Up!

Stamp set: Outlined Occasions (SAB)
Ink: Black Staz-On, used markers to color in the word
Card stock: Whisper White
Designer: Everyday Enchantment

Well this does it for this post, hope you have a wonderful day! Mary

Awww, I really like this! I bet your uncle will look at it and think of YOU as a child, not that the card is kiddie! Really cute!

What a remarkable idea on how to use this "new toy". I love the look you achieved with it. And it does not look "kiddish" at all. What a great card for man or woman. Love this! Hugs, Curt
