Here is a birthday card I made for my brother's birthday. I tried to make it nice and boyish again. I first made a Sahara Sand backround card and layered Always Artichoke for the back layer. I added an argyle texture with the texturz plates for the Sizzix machine. I had some old Designer Series Paper scraps, so I used the argyle pattern again to cut the left side up just for interest. I stamped Birthday Bliss in Always Artichoke and lightly colored the edges with my Sahara Sand marker. To finish it off, I added a distressed Baja Breeze oval behind the stamped image and some Baja Breeze and Always Artichoke ribbon across the front. Hope he likes is - even if it is a few days late!
