Happy Monday everyone!   Today's instalment of "Masculine Monday" features this colourful birthday card!  

Actually I was crafting with friends, and one of them were making daisies with the Big Shot(page 187 $122.95 #113439) and the Bigz daisy die(retired).  She had all these different sized circles as left overs.  

Well my creative mojo had "got up and went", and I was just gabbing with the girls....until I saw the circles.  

I glued the circles on chocolate chip cardstock(page 156 #102128 $8.50) with Tombow(page 177, #110755 $5.25), and then embossed it with the square lattice embossing folder(page189 #119976 $9.95).  

A quick greeting stamped on very vanilla cardstock (page 156 #101650 $9.25) from the Sassy Salutations stamp set(page 143 #126707 $21.95), a bit of sponging, a mat and a few dimensionals(page 177 #104430 $5.25).  A permanent marker and a few pearls(page175 #119247 $6.50) and voila- my card for masculine Monday!  

Here again is proof positive that even those tiny scraps should be saved- you could grab a few different sized circle punches and make your own circles.  A quick change to more feminine colours and this would make a great girl card too!


  1. I love how this card idea came to life while we were talking and crafting. You always amaze me how creative you are!!! Dorothy
