Birthday Greetings

>> Monday, September 30, 2013

Tomorrow is my brother in law's birthday so I'm sharing a quick and easy birthday card that uses fall colors and looks rather masculine. At least to me it does. Sometimes I find it rather difficult to come up with masculine cards. Girls are so much easier!!

I started by cutting the panels from pumpkin, old olive and gold colored CS. On the gold and old olive panels I stamped our silhouette leaf in More Mustard and Old Olive. The gold panel has a sheen to it, so the leaves don't show up too well. They really are there though and look quite nice in real life! On the pumpkin panel I stamped the open leaf in Pumpkin Pie ink. These are attached to the chocolate card base. The greeting is part of the multi birthday stamp and was stamped in Pumpkin Pie on pumpkin CS, layered on chocolate and attached to the card base. Some orange and green dew drops were added to finish the look. No ribbons or bows since it's for my brother in law. Hope he likes it.

The weekly challenge is "So Spooky it's Scary." Now doesn't that sound like fun?!! We'd love to have you join us.

Thanks for stopping by today.

until next time,

These look incredible. I think that these as rubber stamps would be incredible.
