Paper Saving Masculine Birthday Cards


Today I have a fun project to share with you.  I actually made these after I made some similar ones for women.  You will see them in a future post.  I did not make these following a sketch.  It was just a concept that I had in my head where I was trying to make a bunch of birthday cards quickly while using my 6X6 paper to the best advantage.


I used the following products:
Basic Grey - Shine On 6X6 pad
Georgia Pacific - white cardstock
Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder
Hero Arts - All Occasion Messages


I only used 5 full 6X6 sheets of decorative paper, 5-6 sheets of GP card stock, and some scraps to make 8 cards.  Not bad!


Check back soon for a video tutorial where I show you how I made 4 feminine cards using similar techniques.  I think you will be glad that you did.


Thanks so much for stopping by.  In the meantime, remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
