Today's cards are a couple of masculine birthday cards that I made a while ago.
For the first card, I decided to use 3 circles as the main focus of the card. I went with some bright orange patterned paper for the background and layered it on some kraft card so that it would balance the orange out a bit.
I chose the the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Stamps Tag Along stamp set and stamped it on one of the circles. On the other circles, I added some stars.
For the embellishments, I added some small green buttons at the top and some brown twine around the bottom. I also added some faux stitching around the outside of the card with a white gel pen.
For the second card, I went with a numbered patterned paper for the background which I love the colours of. I added some stripey orange paper for the back layer of the centre label and I added some kraft card to the front of the orange layer. I stamped the larger star and added a smaller star on a foam square, on top, to add some dimension.
For the sentiment, I stamped a sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Stamps A Little Sentimental on a label from the Clearly Besotted Stamps Tag Along dies.
