This one’s for you, Dad!

When a birthday for a male family member comes up, I usually buy a card instead of making one. I tend to run the other way when it comes to making masculine cards, but this time I challenged myself to come up with a card for my father’s birthday. I am actually quite surprised and pleased with the way it came out…I guess it does pay sometimes to go beyond one’s comfort zone!

The birthday cake stamp is from Impress ( The brown cardstock papers (Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa) are from Stampin’ Up ( The lighter brown cardstock is subtly stamped with an asterisk from the Little Pieces set (also from Stampin’ Up) using Close to Cocoa ink.
