Here's a quick and easy old-time handmade birthday card for a guy. Of course, just by changing the sentiment, it could be for any occasion.
You know how much I like to make frilly girlie cards, so when I realized it is my nephew's birthday, I had to come up with something quick. I got out the Fan Fair Designer Series Paper (DSP) and combined it with a cut-out from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits.
Fan Fair DSP is great for vintage style cards, so with a little distressing and sponging you can create a crumpled and worn-looking background. The entire "doily" piece reminds me of an old wagon wheel, and the Antique Brad adds to the old-time look.
The Delicate Doilies Sizzlits will give you three versatile and attractive shapes to use either as backgrounds or focal points.
"Wish Big" is from Word Play, which could easily become a go-to set for delightful sentiments.
