Man Card #2

Hello to all my blogging friends!!  There are some new followers out there and I want to say a special "hi" to all you guys! :)

I don't have a challenge to post today, just a card to share.

I have a another man card to share.  My Mom's boyfriend has a birthday coming up next month.  I don't know about you, but male cards are the most challenging to me. This particular man is really into beer (drinking in general), so here is the card I came up with for him.

This is an easel card using a wonderful paper stack I picked up on clearance at Fred Meyer.  It's by DCWV and it's called "The Green Stack."  Made out of 70% recycled paper, it's great for those "green" crafters but it also has some of the best patterns I've seen in  awhile.  The texture and weight of the paper is wonderful and it cuts beautifully in the Cricut!!

The "Happy Birthday" and inside sentiment are printed using Photoshop and the beer mug is from a SCAL file I snagged online for free.

Here is the easel card on display.
I added some thin  black gros grain ribbon I picked up up at Joanns for $1 and three antique silver square brads from my stash.

Here you can see the "stitching" throughout the card.

Thanks so much for visiting me here at  I'd love to hear what you think.  Feel free to become a follower or sign up for my email updates (provided through FeedBurner).  I'd love to share my crafting journey with you! - Cheryl
