Happy Birthday, Cory!

Today is my wonderful husband's birthday, so I used the PDCC colors to create a masculine birthday card!


I used fine linen cardstock, and embossed with woodgrain on a little more than half. I then added this AMAZING gold mesh ribbon, topped with the beautiful satin, grosgrain edged burgundy ribbon. I threaded a bit of the gold through the purple button & attached with Helmar adhesive (all the ribbon is adhered with it- it's my go-to liquid glue!) and stamped the star prints sentiment in SU! perfect plum.
Did I pull off masculine?
I'll add this to the Moxie Fab World Embossing challenge too!
Thanks for stopping by- I'd love to hear what you think!

  1. Love the mesh ribbon, it's something I'd probably be too intimidated to use, but you've got it right!
