For the Guys: An Old-Time Handmade Birthday Card

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.
