Autumn Leaves, Pick of the Patch, Days to Remember, Oxidized Copper, Masculine Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a masculine birthday card to share with you. I had a piece of card stock left over from making a "One Sheet Wonder" a few weeks ago. You can see that card and info by clicking here. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left. 

I took a piece of the background paper that I had stamped a few weeks ago. I thought it took a long time to make that "One Sheet Wonder" because every image had to be stamped off and then misted before it was stamped on the card stock. But I stuck with it and filled a full sheet. I made a card with it but forgot about it until I ran across it today. My plan is to use it up! The pumpkins are from the "Pick of the Patch" set. I cut that piece at 1-1/2" x 5-1/4"".  

Next I cut a piece of Garden Green to measure 2-1/2" x 1/4" and I textured it using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder I glued that piece to the left of the card. Then I glued the "One Sheet Wonder" piece in place on the right.

I cut a 5-1/4" x 1/4" piece of pumpkin Pie card stock and glued it where the other two papers met.

The leaves were die cut using the dies from the "Autumn Leaves" set, "Oxidized Copper" Designer Series Paper" (DSP), and gold foil paper. I set the larger leaf in place using Dimensionals. The gold leaf was taped on top of that.

I took a piece of white Baker's Twine and colored it with my dark Pumpkin Pie Blends Pen. I tied a bow. I tied this bow before the ink was completely dry and my fingers were very orange. By the time I removed all the ink from my fingers with alcohol whites the piece was dry. I glued the bow in place on the bottom of the leaves.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set using Garden Green ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch. The layer behind it is a scalloped piece punched from the same punch using Pumpkin Pie card stock. I taped the two ovals together. Dimensionals were added to the back and it was set in place on the lower part of the card. 

I had some retired rhinestones from the "Champagne Rhinestone" package and I added them to the front of the card. I thought it could use some bling and I didn't buy anything current because I have plenty of retired to use up.

This was a fun card to make and it's got a nice masculine touch to it.  I may have to play with the rest of the piece I cut off tomorrow and see if I can come up with something better.

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