LOVELY AS A TREE Masculine Card

Now that I'm coming down from the hype of Stampin' Up! Convention, I have a bit of catching up to do with birthday cards.  I've already apologised to my much-loved brother for not getting his card in the mail before going to Sydney ... he knows I love him!

Here is the card I made for my brother, Dean.  Whipped out my trusty Lovely As A Tree stamp set, that I think is great for men's cards.  Other items I love to use on masculine cards are the Sanded background stamp and my Colour Spritzer tool.  These got a work-out, big-time, along with a sponge dauber!

Dean's bday card
