Manly Birthday Card

Ahh, the manly card. This always seems to be every one's nemesis.I am here to tell you it's not that bad!

When my boyfriend bought a Harley, I knew I had to have this stamp set from Close to My Heart called Born to Ride. And my Uncle whose birthday this month also owns a Harley so this was perfect! If the motorcycle wasn't manly enough, just stay away from bling, flowers and buttons. I don't know why buttons, but my boyfriend always says, why is there a button there? So I avoid buttons on anything I do for him which turns into anything I do for a guy. The phrase is also from Close to My Heart.
I added some twine and dots with my viva pearl pen in black.

The paper is from Echo Park's dots and stripes line. 

The stars are from the same motorcycle set. I stamped them with Versamark on the green. Then I stamped one on a scrap piece of green, cut it out and used a pop dot.

Hope you like the card and this inspires you to do something a little manly for the wonderful men in your life. Check back tomorrow for a simple card :)
