Masculine Birthday Card

I needed to make a masculine birthday card and boy was I drawing a blank. Then I remembered that I had picked up some copper craft metal at J's a few days ago and decided to make that work. I like the way it turned out, lots of texture but very simple, perfect for the recipient. Thanks for taking a look.


No cricut on this one, obviously. All of my paper is from DCWV stacks. I embossed & distressed the brown background paper to look like leather and used the same embossing plate on the copper. Then I popped the copper up on foam tape, added a button, some leather cord with beads, a couple of grommets and a very few doodle dots. I think he is going to love the different textures.

I'm always looking for things for guys--I find it so much harder than for us girls--maybe because I had not brothers or sons! Thanks for this and all your great projects!
