Welcome to Creation Station's Blog Hop for the month of August! Our theme this month is 'August in My Neighborhood' - and the first thing that comes to mind for me is family birthdays! And, in particular, we have a lot of male birthdays this month. For me, a masculine card is sometimes a challenge because I feel like simplicity in design is a good idea, but I don't want it to be too boring...
So, for one of the cards I have ready for this month of masculine birthdays, I started with the Happy Birthday Thinlits die. I think this is a 'must-have'!! I die cut it from Silver Foil for the focal point of the card.
Besides the two die cuts that I used for the background of the card front, I also layered the Silver Foil piece onto two more Island Indigo die cuts to give it a little bit of thickness and some added dimension.
I also added two Island Indigo punched balloons onto the background, a subtle but added detail.
And each of the balloons have a Silver Thread for the balloon string - again, subtle, but an added detail!
And finally, a simple greeting inside the card!
I hope you enjoyed your stop here, and I can't wait to see what's happening in the rest of the hop!! Here are your choices from here -
