City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #272 Make a Masculine Birthday Card

Hello everyone,

It is time for a new challenge over at City Crafter Challenge Blog and I am hosting this week with a theme Make a Masculine Birthday Card. This is my last appearance as part of the DT for City Crafter Challenge Blog. I would like to thank Kirsty for this amazing opportunity and to all that showed tremendous support and kindness.
Now back to the challenge...
Kirsty chose this photo for the inspiration:



I chose this theme to celebrate my son's birthday and made this card for him:


I created the background with a black cardstock painted with Brushed Pewter Distress Paint, then embossed with industrial embossing folder and slightly sanded it to reveal some black color of the cardstock. I printed the sentiment on my computer. Thank you Cec for the name of the font :) Love it!!!


I cut the shoes with my Cricut and added the shoe lace bow on the top...


Just one more look at the card...

Our guest this week is Dana. I hope you'll join the challenge...
I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...
