#252 Man's bday card

I started making this birthday card for my sister, but decided it was starting to look too masculine. I wanted to use the new Tim Holtz fragments I had, but there was just nothing feminine about the card. Then Deena said, the opus gluei challenge is for a male card, so here it is, I'm entering it in this weeks challenge.

I stamped the bird and branch on beige paper with staz on ink, cut to the approximate size of the rectangle tile. then adhered the stamp to the tile with glossy ellements, and trimmed excess., the bamboo was embossed with the cuttlebug and then I used sandpaper to bring out the white core.. the tiles were adhered to the card with glossy ellements.


  1. I love this card. It's a wonderful combination of simple design for such an elegant feel. Perfect for a MAN. Thanks so much for playing with us at OPUS GLUEI.

  2. Well, I'm very glad you listened to Deena and entered your card into the Opus Gluei challenge this week. This has a wonderfully elegant feel to it, very classic and calm (like a great guy!). Love how it all comes together so perfectly!
