A Piece of Cake!

vintage-cake-cardDo you ever struggle making masculine cards? Maybe its just me. I’m always tempted to add bows and glitter, so  I have to discipline myself to “tone it down a bit.” 🙂  My uncle’s birthday just passed and this is the card I came up with.

To keep it somewhat more simple, I selected a great Tim Holtz patterned paper to be more of the focus. Thought all of the numbers would be fitting.

vintage-cake-card-2To add a bit of texture, I stitched vintage tickets across the top in a zig zag stitch. A stamp frames the birthday greeting, and a pin holds a 1950s style looking cake. Couldn’t resist, had to add a bit of Stickles around the frame…just a bit. 🙂

I hope you had a great {creative} weekend, and have a fun week ahead!

Happy Creating,
