tagtastic birthday

Last Friday was not only Donna's birthday but also Stuart's uncle Dave's birthday. Here's the clean and simple birthday card I made for him! 

Happy Birthday Bear

Stamp Set: Tagtastic (Hostess)
Ink: Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Confetti White
Punch: Decorative Label
Accessories: Mini Brads

So I had these strips of Espresso lying around that I thought would work as little banners - I cut a snake tongue end to them. I attached them to my Confetti White card base with mini brads. As the focal point I stamped the bear on the bike stamp from Tagtastic, coloured it in and punched it out. Finally to tie in the dashed line on the bear stamp I did a dashed line all around the edge of the card! 

Do you like it? Manly enough? Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think! I love reading them! 

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy Stampin',

  1. This is such a great idea for a CAS guy card! I have several I need to make for my stash and I have got to CASE this one!! TFS!

  2. This is a great little card, perfect for so many occasions, but yes this works great for any Man with the bear stamp! Would be lovely with flowers for a girl too :-)
    I think I might be 'case'ing it too if that's OK?....

    1. Thanks! I loved that it was so quick and simple to put together. Of course...I'd love to see your CASE of it! So great to see how differently everyone interprets a card! xx
