Abstract Birthday

Hello friends, Mindy here, sharing a card for a masculine birthday with you today.  I have trouble making cards for gentlemen, whether they are family or friends.  I think it is all in my mind, but I am hesitant to begin designing them whenever a birthday is near.

I hope you will enjoy this card, and check out all of the New merchandise available at the Classy Cards n' Such online store.

I started by making my A2 size card base from a half sheet of the amazing So...Silk Glamour Green card stock. This paper is so beautiful, and makes such a wonderful card base. I then looked through my stash of mono and multi-print papers that I pulled from my Gelli Plate by Gelli Arts. I love making this printed paper in my spare time, when not designing cards.  I trim down my pages to fit the A2 size card so they are ready to use when I want to make a card or project. I then took a coordinating sheet from the Foil Paper - Textured Patterns 1 paper pack, and cut several squares and rectangles from it.

After adhering these shapes in a pleasing pattern I cut a sheet of the gold, from the same pack, with the Flower Vine die cut from Anna Griffin. I cut this design apart in three pieces and adhered them to the card front.

To complete this card, I attached a square of the textured paper with Large Foam Pads from Joy! to add some depth and dimension, and a birthday greeting from the Greeting Set dies from Impression Obsession.

I hope you have a wonderful day full of blessings!
