I am running low on male cards, both boys and adults, decided to use this very nice sketch this week at http://sweetsketchwednesday2.blogspot.com/ to make an adult card using this mostly browns color combo. Although, I did make the card without a bow....male card with a bow... too girly, I think.
My Scraps drawers are getting too full, I am trying really hard to use up all my odds & ends, this sketch was perfect for doing so. I started by using a Kraft cardstock card base with matching envelope from a Recollections pack at Michael's Craft Stores. The embossed goldish color paper has a slight pattern to it, I embossed with a Cuttlebug "Gears" folder. The third panel is a wood-grain pattern and the "Happy B'day" panel has a pretty gold shimmer to it. I wrote and printed the sentiment on my Explore. The metal gear is from an assortment pack by "bead landing" brand from Michael's. The chevron strip I cut out of cardstock with a Recollection "Chevron" Border Punch.
