Male birthday


This week over at Can You Digi It? There is a fun new challenge #31 to create something for a male birthday. This is so great because I tend to create quite a lot of masculine cards. But rarely do I think about making them for birthdays.

For my card I thought of the most manly job I could. Which for me is that of a soldier. And C.Y.D.I. has the perfect stamp for this. It's the dog tag, of course it works great if you are creating for a dog too. And it's a great way to start getting into digi/hybrid stamping. Plus you can't beat the price.

I also used the Close To My Heart Durables Round for the bullets. I thought it really gave the card more of a military feel. The durables come in 3 different styles - square, round, and artisan. In addition to that I also used an eyelet and a chain. I believe it creates a very cohesive look.

If you have some time please stop by and play along with this challenge. After all we all have some guy whose important in our life like our father, brother, nephew, granddad, husband, or maybe our dog.

In my house there's my husband and my two boy dogs Einstein and Newton.
