A Masculine Birthday Card! (:

How have my beautiful crafty friends been?!

Today, I am sharing a card I made for and already mailed out to my male best friend, Milton.  Today is his birthday, so I want to wish him a happy birthday!!!  Happy Birthday, Milton!!!  

This time it's a fancy masculine card!  heehee (:  I heat embossed the white sentiment onto vellum paper.  The woodgrain background is from Hero Arts (in love with it!) and I inked it up using distress ink in "faded jeans".  Then, I sprayed some perfect pearls mist onto the inked background stamp... This left a gorgeous, shimmery impression on the white card stock!!!  It doesn't exactly show on the picture, but in person it is quite beautiful! (Ask Milton - HA!)  I mounted the background panel onto a shimmery navy blue card stock by Bazzill.  I also used the same navy blue card stock to mount the sentiment on vellum (the vellum adhesive isn't supposed to show through, but for whatever reason it did).  I also clear heat embossed the tie (from Lawn Fawn's "Dad's Day"), and to make it pop and match with the rest of the white theme, I used a white gel pen to outline the stripes on the tie.  To finish off the card, I added pearls in varying sizes, which I think gave the card a classy finishing touch (:

Here's a look at the card:

Hope you all enjoyed this card, and perhaps I have inspired you to get crafty today!  Have an amazing and blessed day!!!  See you again soon with more FUN surprises!!! Xoxo

Thank you once again for the card and for the birthday wishes. I love the blue and grey combination! I appreciate the fact that the card is masculine, yet it isn't boring or dull--it's definitely fun and creative. Kudos to you for such an achievement... ;0)
