Happy Birthday

It's about birthday cards today!
I have 2 birthday cards that I want to show you. 
The first one is made with
"Sm Basket Weave" (#90402)
"Happy Birthday" (#36314)
When I found this little brown 'bag' in my supplies, I decided that I wanted to make a card with it.  I stamped it using VersaMark ink and the
"Sm Basket Weave" stamp. 
I used a ruler and tore the edges of the kraft cardstock.
I adhered the red cardstock to the kraft and stamped the
"Happy Birthday" sentiment onto it with Color Box Fluid Chalk Ink.
The bag was adhered to the card with ATG tape.

The pull out tag is just the right size to hold a gift card, stamp a sentiment, or just sign your name.

This second card is made with the same "Happy Birthday" stamp as the first. I really love the font and the size of this stamp.
Perfect for a standard A2 card.
I cut coordinating pieces of patterned paper in varying sized strips and adhered them to some white cardstock.
I then ran this through the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder.
(sorry I don't have a clue what the name of that folder is.)
The fiber I tied around it is from my stash, as is the "screw top" brad.
I usually have a tough time with masculine cards, but I think these 2
 turned out very nice.
Thanks for stopping by today, leave  comment if you will.
Come again soon.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
