40th Birthday

It's crazy busy times around here!!  In the middle of school holidays (well they kind of ended yesterday) and the thought of returning back to normal routine on Monday, well we just had to squeeze in a trip to Melbourne to celebrate my brother's 40th.  And extra bonus, I get to catch up with extra family time too!

So, I dare not head home to Melbourne without presents and handmade cards!!  Good you imagine!  So I went searching on pinterest looking for cards that were appropriate for males, I found a really simple card.  No crazy embellishing for males.  Although I did have to add the '40' to the front!!

It's a great card for using all those strips of cardstock you had lying around but just didn't dare throw away!!  Just choose a few masculine cololurs and it's a card made easy.  These photos don't really show it very well, but I have painted the '40' with gold paint.  It looks much better in real life.  I love chipboard numbers and letters, they have to be one of the must-haves in my craft collection!

So here's what I used:

Stamps: Happiest Birthday Wishes
Inks: Soft Suede
Papers: Soft Suede, Whisper White, Pacific Point, More Mustard, Early Espresso & Cherry Cobbler
Other: Chipboard numbers, gold Smooch
