Masculine cards can be sort of tough for this gal who likes flowers, butterflies and bling! But I made this card this morning for someone special who is celebrating the big 6-0 in a few weeks. I saw a card on the Silhouette blog recently and decided to use it for inspiration (read: steal it). Here's my version:
I cut the white circle background with my Cameo from a shape purchased in the Silhouette store. It cut so beautifully! I took a one inch punch to cut some circles from the Authentique Genuine paper pad. Those were easily adhered in a random fashion under the circle background and the whole thing was adhered to a 6x12 inch piece of Kraft cardstock. I cut the banner with my Cameo, too, and heat embossed the sentiment which is from a Hero Arts stamp set I have.
I added a few Papertrey Ink buttons for a bit more interest and that was it....I just love this background and will use it again!
I entered this in the following challenges:
MilkCoffee Challenges: Round and Round We Go-Circles Challenge
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Challenge: No Rules
Tuesday Alchemy: Challenge #23: Button, Button, Whose Got a Button
And a big shout out to Melissa/Sunshine Honeybee for the heads up on the challenges.
