I am almost done with my cards for the ones I am giving away for Christmas. This is the last of the male birthday cards.
I used some craft cardstock and laid a gear stencil over the top. Using my brown ink and an ink blending tool over the stencil to make a great background. The happy birthday is the same one I keep using. I clearly need more sentiments. I used the brown ink around the edges. I stamped a stop watch in bronze ink and used my clear embossing powder to give some shine. I fussy cut it out. I used some thin foam tape to pop it up. I wanted to add a pop pf color to all this brown. I used a nice navy blue color. These pictures do not due the card justice.
