Masculine Birthday Greetings (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.  I have a card design today that I think works well for a man.

The background was created with Melted Chocolate (how appropriate) Dylusions Ink.   I stamped using two tree trunk grain fragments from the new Nature Fragments set with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.     I embossed two trees from Fantasy Woodland and sentiment from Birthday Words with brown powder.   I blended Broken China Distress Ink over the trees and label.

Thanks for your visit and have a great day,


  1. Thanks for sharing this Shirley as you say it makes a great card for a man

  2. This makes a really great masculine card. I love the wood grain nature fragment and that luscious brown in the background. Those stylised trees and the raffia - perfect for the men in our lives.

  3. This looks absolutely splendid Shirley & I love the way the watermarks & blotches in the background colour echo the roundness of the tree rings & really add to the whole woody sense especially with your raffia. I absolutely love how your red-orange brown complements the blue-green of the your matting, trees & sentiment. Your leaf charm echoes the shapes & balances your trio of trees. A lovely unusual delight that looks good enough to eat but won't add inches to the waistline……………..
