Happy Birthday!

Hi Friends!

How are you on this fine Wednesday?  Hope you are staying warm wherever you are.  I don't want to jinx things, but this winter hasn't been too bad so far.  We did get some snow today about an inch, and we are due for a couple more inches.  But, I can deal with a couple inches of snow!:-)

Ok, I just want to share with you a card I made for the challenge over at City Crafter.  I needed a masculine birthday card for my brother-in-law so I made this card...

I started with a white card base and paired it with gold and vellum paper.  The feathers were stamped with gold ink and gold stickles added to the middle feather.  The sentiment was embossed in gold and gold circle stickers added to each side.  I struggled with not added a flower or bow on this card.  But, I had to hold myself back...lol!  But, anyways, I hope my brother-in-law likes it. 

Ok, friends, I hope you are having a great week.  Thanks so much for taking a peek at my card today!  Take care!

  2. What a neat card, Maria! I never thought of using feathers for a guy's card--great idea! The gold is so beautiful!

  3. Maria, this is such a fantastic card.. especially for a guy! The golden feathers are stunning and I love the pretty vellum! You create so beautifully, whatever the style or theme. :o) I love those big polka dots, too! He will definitely love this and be so appreciative of a handmade card. Stay toasty and have a wonderful day, my friend!

  7. Fabulous Maria....great masculine card! Love the touch of gold! I know what you mean when it comes to adding flowers and bows....it is hard not too!

  8. You have really given me new inspiration for a masculine card. I lovingly call them DMC's for dreaded man cards. Not the easiest for me to pull off! This is beautiful!
