Jason's Birthday Card

Hello everyone.
Do you struggle with masculine cards?
I know I do and I have decided that I'm going to overcome
this problem.  I needed a birthday card for my daughter's boyfriend
and I wanted to do something a little different.
I put my mind to it and this is the card I created.
I started out with a die cut circle in a piece of card stock and 
a few coordinating colors of Distress Inks.
After some trial and error, I finally decided on these 3 large 
 intersecting circles.
I simply moved the circle "stencil" around and inked it with 
the Distress Ink and an ink blending tool.
Once they were the color I liked, I fussy cut them leaving a small outline around
them.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is 
and I stamped it with Timber Brown Staz On Ink
using my MISTI stamping tool, to be sure I got a clear, crisp impression.
The tag behind the circles is a manila tag covered with a piece of 
deli paper that I used alcohol inks to create. 
I used ATG tape to adhere the tag to a brown piece of card stock,
then trimmed the extra from the sides.
The circles were adhered on top of that piece and it was all 
adhered to a white card base.
The sentiment is from the 
from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.
I stamped it with the same brown Staz On Ink as the sentiment on the front
of the card.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog today,
and that you'll come again soon.
Until next time,
Happy Crafting!
