It's another Tuesday in August - and I'm back for my 2nd week as Guest Designer for the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge. This week we are to make a masculine Numbered Birthday Card.
I made mine for DH Kent - this is how old he will be on his next birthday in January 2016 - I hope I remember where I hide this so I can give it to him then!! I just love the bold look of the oversized numbers - they are dies from Papertrey Ink. The background is stamped with Spooky Tree from Waltzingmouse. The two sentiment stamps are from Inkadinkado Bird Assortment.
I used my long forgotten Owl punch from Stampin Up for the cute little critter and the Small Gothic Window die from Poppy Stamps. I sponged Ranger Distress Broken China ink over the edges of the piece inside the window frame. The heart and eyes on the owl are popped up on foam dots.
I die cut the Alterations Small Easel out of kraft card stock and adhered it onto the back of my card panel so it can be displayed nicely on a shelf or windowsill!
I hope you'll join us this week - and link up your Numbered Birthday masculine creation! Who do you know that is having a special numbered birthday?? You'll find all the details and more inspiration from the Design Team over at the Cardz 4 Guyz blog!
