Masculine Birthday card using Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections


Hi everyone and happy Monday!

I have a special card to share with you today. I created this for my husband's birthday. I love Graphic 45's Kraft Reflections paper collection. It's the perfect set to pull-off some masculine projects and I love the look of black and Kraft. The paper collection also includes cut-outs that you can use to accent your projects. I cut out a number of elements from the paper collection and layered them on this card. Behind the elements is a black doily I purchased on Etsy, giving the card the perfect touch of black, but keeping it very masculine. Here are some photos...


I incorporated some May Arts ribbon and Want 2 Scrap bling...


You will also notice some of the Graphic 45 Staples: Metal Tag and Metal Hinges.


I always finish off the inside of my cards. This one was no exception! I cut out the playing cards from the Quote... Unquote paper and popped them up on dimensionals. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment was taken from an MFT stamp set.



"You're the King" is taken from another MFT stamp set. I popped the sentiment up on dimenationals and adhered it to the small metal tag. Then I chose to hang it like a charm on the ribbon using a garment pin. Perfect little accent!


Here's a look at the card at a different angle...

Thanks for stopping by and have an AMAZING week!
