Father's Day or Masculine Birthday Card

I always struggle with masculine cards so I am really trying to create more of them so I become more at ease when making them.  Here are a couple I did, first I was planning for Father's Day and then I realized this card would also be great for a birthday so here they are:




And here is how they are made:

Cut Kraft cardstock to 9x6” and fold in half to make a card that measures 4 ½ x 6”.  

Cut Timberline paper to 4 ½ x 6” and stamp with the tools from the You’re the Best stamp set alternating with Cocoa and Chocolate ink and mount to front of card.

Cut Balloon Ride paper to 1 x 4 ¼” and stamp with sentiment of choice (I made one with You’re the Best and one with Joyful Birthday) using Twilight ink, then dove tail paper.

Cut Twilight cardstock to 1 ¾ x 4” and mount sentiment stamped on Balloon Ride paper to it.  Wrap twine around this a few times and tie.  Add a Durable Triangle Stud and then mount this whole piece onto the front of the card using 3-D Foam Tape

Supplies Used:
Timberline Paper Packet (X7182B) (this included the B&T and the Twilight cardstock used in the project, also the base of the card could be made using the Chocolate cardstock included in this paper pack)
