Throughout The Year, Autumn Leaves, Oxidized Copper, Masculine Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a very quick and easy masculine birthday card.  Or a fall birthday card, I needed it for a masculine birthday. Please read on to see how the card was made.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Very Vanilla card stock. It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut a 2" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock and textured it using the "Distressed Tile" embossing folder. I glued it to the left side of the card. As you may have read in other posts, I prefer to glue my embossed pieces because there's not a lot of flat surfaces for the tape to stick and I've found that it comes off easily, but with the glue it's not going anywhere.

The words are from the "Throughout the Year" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla card stock using Pecan Pie ink. I die cut them using the second largest die from the "Nested Essentials" die set. I used the largest die to cut the Pecan Pie layer behind it. I taped the two layers together and I glued them to the front of the card. Centering them as much as possible by eyeing it.

Next I die cut two leaves using the "Oxidized Copper" Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the "Autumn Leaves" bundle. One of the maple leaves was cut using gold foil card stock. The leaves were set in place using Dimensionals and the card was done

Now don't you just love quick and easy cards?  This was very fun to make and I love how quick it went together.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's masculine birthday card,

I like when you have the different card background and the layering of the leaves. Great job.

Really like your choice of embossing, DSP and CS. Perfect man card but could be used for other occasions also.
