Male Birthday Card for CPS 107 Challenge

I am going to complete a few cards today and I will post them as I get them finished. The first one is for the CPS challenge this week. You know what is funny, I actually had all the cuts for this card before the sketch was posted, but I was thinking of putting the stamped image on the other end of the card and I wasn’t liking the way it looked, so I decided to create it based on the sketch and this is what I came up with. This one will also be the card that I exchange for the local card swap I am in….the them for the next swap is male birthday cards. The size of this card is 4” x 9” and it fits perfectly in a legal size envelope. To create the leather look on the Close to Cocoa cardstock, I tore a strip from a 12x12 piece of cardstock, I sprayed it with water and then crumpled it up.

Cardstock: Stampin’ Up! Buckaroo Blue, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery, and Riding Hood Red
Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Nature Silhouettes and Birthday Greetings
Ink: Stampin’ Up! Close to Cocoa
Embellishments: Stampin’ Up! Twill tape, We R Memory Keepers eyelets and Crop-A-Dile, Joann’s spiral paper clip, Provo Craft Cuttlebug and embossing folder, thread.
