Masculine Birthday Card

Happy December!  Can you believe it's December 1st?  I can't.  This year's flown by super fast!  Today I want to share a simple, masculine birthday card I made for my friend at church.

I find it really hard to make manly cards.  I just like sparkles and pink way too much, I guess.  I cut the stars in graduated sizes using Plantin Schoolbook.  I inked the edges with a darker yellow, but you can't see it too well in the picture.  I added each one using foam dots to give it lots of dimension.  This posed a small challenge fitting it in the envelope, but I got it to work!

The sentiment was stamped on a tag from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.  The stamp is from Hero Arts.  The polka dot paper was on clearance at Michael's.

This card was super fast to make and would work great if you need a quick birthday card.  You could make it more girlie by using a graduated flower or heart instead of the star.  And, of course, by adding some glitter or sparkles as well!

Don't forget to enter the giveaway for some Cricut Christmas paper here.  I will be drawing a winner on Friday night.
