Here is a male birthday card I made using a stamp from Stampin Up – Countryside stamp set. i also made one very similar for fathers Day using this same stamp. The cardstock is Stampin Up Early espresso and a light green which has since been retired. I embossed the light green layer with Sizzix brick wall embossing folder, and added a button for some texture. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners by stampin up. Today was the retirement village ladies Christmas card marathon for the troops, so I popped over there after work for a couple of hours – just in time for a lovely lunch, and was amazed at the display covering quite a few tables of the 300 cards they had made! Well done ladies – what an effort! Til tomorrow…..
