Masculine Birthday Cards

Hi Blogger Friends! Last week I was able to make a birthday card for my uncle and brother (at my mom's special request.) I'm pretty happy with how they turned out and how easy they were to make. I sure don't have a lot of time to craft anymore, but this was a great challenge for me.

This is the card I made for my uncle (my mom's brother). The picture is an actual family pic he sent my mom, I just printed it off my computer and inked it up a bit. It was so much fun using a "real" vintage picture and I know it means a lot to Uncle Ken. I used some old buttons I've been collecting, twine I dyed myself, a page from an old book and the base of the card is some Core'dinations embossed paper that I sanded.

This is the card for my brother. He lives, eats, breaths, and dreams fishing...need I say more?!! Thankfully I found the fish image at the Graphics Fairy (her site always comes thru for me!). I printed it off on some tan textured paper, inked it up and it was as easy as that! I've done every kind of fish card I can think of and this was such a nice change. The other papers are from my collection of Basic Grey goodies.

Thanks for looking and I hope you have a very blessed day!
