I had to make a few Masculine Birthday cards this week one for my brother and one for DH whose Birthday fall on the same day . Just wanted to share the one I did for my brother since I don't think he will check my blog LOL. The BG I stamped with various images from TH's Life's Possibilites collection and then I ran it through my Big Kick with the Checkboard EF ,and distessed the edges .The gears were cut using the TH gear die then sponged with DI and embossed with distress EP . I really like how they turned out . The clipping was torn from a paper bag that I got from a local scrapbook store . I stamped the mini jalopy on script paper with walnut DI and embossed with clear EP and added brads to the wheels.I added a ticket and circled the month and day of my brothers Birthday and attached it to one of Tim's hanger clips.
I'm entering this in a couple of challenges;

Hi Marilyn: I checked your blog the past few days waiting to see your brother's card as you told me his BD was coming up. You did this card justice, girl! LOL Lots of grungy bits and techniques. He will love it, I'm sure.

Marilyn, your masculine card is so wonderful! I love the texture you have used on the background. Then the wonderful layers of trims. The die cut baroque with Tim's old car stamped in the center looks fantastic! I love the mini tag with the hanger and the mini gears, too! Thank you so much for joining us for Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
