Post 120: Masculine Birthday Card

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a masuline themed birthday card today.

This is a top folding A2 size card. I added the panel in a lopsided tilted way to add interest, wanted it to look like office documents hence, added the 3 paper clips at the top. There are 3 colors here besides the neutrals- red, grey and blue. I distressed the edges of the panel to give it a hand torn look and added some stitch lines with a fine point black sharpie. The pattern papers used here are from The Gentleman collection by Papericious. I've used a red button to accent the banner. The sentiment is from Verve stamps and is die cut with a Gina Marie Designs stitched rectangle die. The die cut sentiment is from the Sizzix Tim Holtz Celebration Script words die set, I've colored it partially with black soot distress ink.  

List of Supplies:

1. The Gentleman Paper Pack by Papericious 
2. Verve stamps- Lucky Day Digi stamp 
3. Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangles Die Set
4. Sizzix Tim Holtz Celebration Script words die set
5. Paper Clips
6. Tissue Tape
7. Tombow Mono Multi Glue
8. Iris Cardstock 250 gsm
9. Black Sharpie Fine Point
10. Ranger's blending tool and foam
11. Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink Pad 

Here are a couple of pictures of the card :--

I am playing along with the following challenges:

Spring Festival Challenge 5 (shapes) - There are diamond shapes and square checkered shapes on the pattern paper used here. 

Spring Festival Surprise Challenge with Jessica (threes) - There are 3 paper clips used as embellishments here and also 3 colors besides the neutrals. 

PS: I'm also excited to share that I am having a small crafty giveaway which is open to anyone worldwide (international folks are most welcome). All the details can be found here -- I'd be super thrilled and honored if you play along :) the prize is a 25 USD gift certificate to any store you like.

Thanks for your time! Would love to read your comments :)
