I love my Birthday! Don't worry it isn't until October so you have plenty of time to make my card (just kidding). I always include a birthday card as one of my cards for the monthly stamp therapy class.
This card layout was inspired by the Annual Catalog.
Do you recognize it?
If not, turn to page 70 and you'll see this card!
I often use the catalog to inspire me when I'm trying to break out of a stamping rut. Some of my goals for this card where to make a guy card and also use the Wood Textures 6 x 6" DSP. With my card, I attempted to match the layout, but realized in the process that the card from the catalog must be an unusual size to accomplish the spacing. I did have a little trouble with the background stamps but found the Playful Backgrounds (pg 141) would work instead.
I know many guys secretly love to get handmade cards! I hope you can create this for a dude in your life.
