It is my Sweetie's Birthday today!  As usual, I couldn't decide on a masculine style card I wanted to do!  As I have mentioned before, I find cards for blokes the hardest to make!  Anyway, this is the design I came up with at the eleventh hour!!

I am a Neutrals nut, so stuck with what I know best!  I am also ashamed to say I have had the "Need for Speed" set for some time and only used it once.  While my DH doesn't ride a quadbike, I figured anything with wheels and an engine would be good!  Add hardware and Twill tape, which I used like a banner, and I was good to go.

Of course I decorated the inside too.  I love how a little artwork on the inside of a card can take it from drab to fab, don't you?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DH -  Wishing you an awesome day ♥


  1. This is a fabulous guy card! Love the colors and the repeat stamping of the image to give it that "moving" effect. Well done Paula! Hugs to you! And a happy day to your DH :)

  2. That is an awesome card Paula, and Happy Birthday Mark.

  3. Fabulous masculine card Paula. The neutrals are fantastic & I love the tonal colouring through the dotty border. Cool ribbon treatment too! Happy birthday to Mr. D! :)

  4. I am so like you. Hate male cards & usually find myself reaching for my Extreme Elements set at the very last minute. Hugs xxx

  5. GREAT card, love. Doesn't look to me like you struggle with male cards; this turned out perfect.

  6. Love the stamping on the twill tape, Paula - happy birthday to that gorgeous bloke!
