It just seems like there are a lot of birthdays this month and I find myself making a lot of cards for them. Fortunately, there's a lot of inspiration on Pinterest, which is where I found the inspiration for this card. The pin was from Clean and Simple Stamping, a style that I really appreciate. I also loved that once again, it's a card that can be made with a masculine feel. I also love that I was able to use paper from a Halloween line, the Lost and Found Halloween 6x6 pad from My Mind's Eye. I'm always a little hesitant to buy holiday themed paper, but this particular pad had designs that I thought I could transcend the holiday, such as this beautiful plaid. I also was able to use the Argyle embossing folder from Cuttlebug and I always love when I get the use argyle. It turns out that my Martha Stewart baker's twine was the perfect color to go with the scrap paper I used to mat the card and I finally got to use the circle stamp from the Fiskar's Happy Birthday stamp set. I just love how the card turned out. Clean and simple and just way I like it.
