Hello and happy Fourth of July week.
Ideas for masculine cards don't come easily to me so I just started playing with this newsprint paper that was in my stash and ended up with a not too bad card. Whenever I use a newsprint background paper I like to distress it. The edges are torn and sponged with basic gray ink. Happy Birthday is from an old Stampin' Up set that I don't know the name of. After stamping the sentiment on light gray card stock I cut it with Nestabilities Grommet Tag, trimmed it to fit on a darker gray Grommet Tag. Just on a whim I tied the tag on a piece of bakers twine, letting it hang there, and liked the looks of it.
Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. Have a happy and safe July 4th.
Supplies: Basic gray, light gray cardstock; background paper from Bazzill; Stampin Up birthday stamp; basic gray stamp pad; sponge dauber; bakers twine; Scor-tape.
