A Guy Greetings and Gorgeous Grunge Masculine Birthday Card

Since I decided I was done making Christmas cards, I thought I would begin my needed stash of masculine Birthday Cards.  

I used the "Guy Greetings" set for this card.  I am hoping that it won't be retired.  It's a wonderful set full of fun images and LOTS and LOTS of words. Though the words here were done on my computer.  
For my card, which is not how I planned it out, I used the striped paper from the "Pretty Petals" paper stack.  I wanted the stripes on the bottom but when I sat down to assemble the card, I didn't pay attention and they ended up on top.  Which is okay (it has to be, it's all put together), but it does look okay this way too.  A good mistake I guess!

I used Very Vanilla and Early Espresso for my cardstock.  The ink I used is Early Espresso.  I have one of the older ink pads and it's in need of replacing.  Re-inking just isn't cutting it anymore.  

I used the dots from the "Gorgeous Grunge" set.  And I planned on putting the dots on but once I had set my eyes on that decorative paper, I totally forgot about the dots so I had to add them later!!  I hate it when I do that!!! LOL  But that worked out for me too!!

I set the car and the words in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  A super easy and quick card.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
