Birthday Bash Challenge 156 @ MSC

Hello Again,
Well this time over at it is Marge's turn to choose the theme and this time around she has come up with a nice easy one of Birthday Bash. Yes all you have to do is make a Birthday card, however it must include a matching envelope.

Here is what I came up with,

This time I decided to make a card for a guy as they can be hard to do and lets face it we always need them too.
My card is 5x5 I have used 2 papers from a DCWV mat stack paper pad I've had for years along with 2 new stamps I picked up at a craft show. The center pint pot has a second layer which you may not see from here. The sentiment is from the set too. I used a little ribbon and a couple of screw head brads just to "man" it up a bit. For the envelope I just stamped the image randomly around the edge and on the back flap allowing space for the address to be written, along with a little inking too.

Here is the card on its own

Now it's your turn to join in with the fun but don't forget the envelope.



  1. Good looking masculine card and envelope! The added brads work well!


  2. Guy cards are usually one of the hardest to make! You really rocked this one out Sue! Great matching envelope as well! :)

  3. Gotta agree w/Sandy here -- guy cards are the most challenging for me and you really nailed it! Sure whoever receives this will totally LOVE it, even before he see his card! ;')

  4. Sue... what a great card! I always have a hard time with male cards but this is just brilliant! What impressed me the most was the matching envelope and how you stamped it. I never would have thought to stamp one only half way. I LOVE the effect. Well done!

  5. The paper is just perfect for that stamp set! What a wonderful masculine theme on the card and envelope!
