Masculine Birthday Cards

 Happy Friday to you!
WOW!  Christmas is FAST approaching and I don't know about you but I actually think I might be ready this year!  LOL   Must be all that 'having to stay at home' time!  That means I actually had some time to be creative with things other than Christmas!  After sending out over 100 cards this year, I was more then happy to create something OTHER THAN a holiday card!  LOL

Plus, a friend of mine requested a few masculine birthday cards  ...  so here we go!

Once again I turned to Pinterest for inspiration and found THIS card.  Thanks to the designer for her inspiration.   I have used MINTAY papers for today's cards ... they are all so beautiful!  This first card utilizes the 'Winderness' paper pad.

My second card using papers from the 'Marina' paper pad.  On the front & back covers of these paper pads are several images.  I fussy cut the lighthouse from the back cover to use on this card (also fussy cut the fox from the cover of that paper pad for the card sentiment panel above).  Red/white striped ribbon was used above & below my sentiment to bring attention to the top of the light house.

For this last card, I've used papers from the 'Cozy Evening' paper pad.
The woodgrain background was one sheet ... the sentiment was stamped on a die cut panel of the reverse side of this sheet.   And my focus image was fussy cut from another sheet.  The flip side of that sheet was also used for the matting of my sentiment die cut panel.  VIOLA!  This one was really quick & easy but I think packs a PUNCH!!

I still have a few more to make so I'm headed back over to Pinterest for more inspiration!

Hope you have a fabulous day and weekend ahead!
As always, thanks so much for stopping by and please stay healthy!
