For a Man
You know, I looked at some of the cards my partner has received for his birthday tomorrow and thought...'you could just as easily put 'happy retirement' on the front'! While my partner is not a young man, he is a long way from retirement and is the active daddy of a six-year-old...My mission has become to make a card that does not scream 'past it'!
I used the X-cut Build a Scene hot air balloon dies. There are a lot of bits to be cut out here (and have plenty of waxed paper handy!) The papers for the balloon and all its trimmings are from Basic Grey '
Nook and Pantry' range and the cloud background is October Afternoon. I used a circular sentiment stamp from My Sentiments Exactly and some yellow and red gems - he's man enough to enjoy a bit of bling on his card!
