My neighbor Joe celebrated his birthday last week and due to the fact that I didn’t plan ahead (as usual), I only had a little bit of time to make him a card before we were due over at his house for dessert. So I grabbed our Summer Mini Catalog (available May 1st) and CASE’d a card from there, changing the colors and stamp images to make it my own.
The card I CASED features a cool motorcycle image which would be perfect for a guy….especially my neighbor Joe who has several Harleys. But unfortunately I don’t have that stamp yet. And after perusing my stamp stash, it’s clear that I don’t have many stamp sets that are suitable for an adult male. But luckily Joe loves trees (he has a ton of trees and bushes in his yard, planted there by choice), so I grabbed our Branch Out stamp set (available to order off the Dormant List). The image worked nicely on the large white circular cardstock, cut with our Circle Scissors Plus. I added a birdhouse image as Joe’s wife has several birdhouses hanging from the trees in their yard.
