Happy Birthday Dad, Brothers, Father-in-law

I was on my daily blog trip this morning when I came across Lisa Johnson's blog and her amazing "man card"(that cracks me up)!! She is so talented and creative..I just love her work..It isn't over the top and she always uses the best color combos!! I can only wish to create at her level...Anyway, she gave a little challenge to see our "man cards" so I thought I would give it a try!!! As soon as the kids were down for their naps I went to work.. I had this great Paper Studio patterned paper that I used..It just seems to be more masculine with a bit of softness to it. I distressed the sides of the paper with scissors to make it a bit more rugged. I stamped the presents from It's a Celebration (PTI) and cut them out. I used dimensionals behind the presents and glue dots behind the ribbon.. I also used the tag stamp from this set, cut it out and placed it on the paper with a small brad. I really love this tag stamp and have found so many useful ways to use it on cards and gifts...Both of the sentiments are from Birthday Basics (PTI).. I'll definitely hang on to this until one of the men in my life have a birthday..not for a few more months..thanks for the ideas Lisa!!!

I saw your link over at Lisa's on the "Man Card" post. I LOVE your card! I never thought to use that stamp set for a masculine card, but I see it works just fine! Thanks for sharing.

Really really like this card, it is whimsical but still has great overall design elements! Great job on Lisa's challenge:)!
