Another Masculine Card Using Skylark Paper Pack

Masculine Birthday Card Using the Skylark Paper Pack
To continue on with a previous post concerning making of masculine cards I still had three quarters of a sheet of the Skylark B&T paper and I wanted to do something else with it. 




So I cut a 4 ¼ x 5 ½ piece from the bottom left side that included the starburst and flying bird.  I then inked all the edges using Chocolate ink and my sponge dauber.  I cut a strip of the scrap Skylark paper to ¼ x 2 ¾” and ripped it and adhered it onto the printed ribbon on the left of the page.  I then cut the little decorative strip (called the zip strip) that comes on all the Close to My Heart B&T papers to 4” and cut a little flag end on the right side.  I then inked all the edges with the Chocolate ink using the dauber.  I cut another piece of the scrap B&T paper to 1 x 4 ¼” and inked the edges of it as well.  I then stamped my sentiment (I used Thinking of You but it could be Happy Birthday, Get Well or anyone of a number of sentiments) using Lagoon Ink. 
I assembled the card as shown in the above photo, it was quick, easy and not a frilly, girly card.
