Masculine Birthday

Here's a straight forward, no frills birthday card I made for my son's best friend. Sometimes it is hard to make a masculine card without adding more frills and fuss.

For this one I attached the striped DP then the same brown cardstock as the base after attaching some ribbon (Hobby Lobby - I get several spools at a time when they have their 50% off sale . . . nothing better than 5 yds for 98 cents!). On top of this I put a tag I cut out with my Coluzzle template from a manila folder. I inked the edge with Distress Ink and patted the ink pad around on the tag. Then I used my handy dandy metal ruler again to distress the edge of the tag. I sew a lot and have a bin of extra buttons in my sewing closet. I dug around in there and found this button and stuck it on. I don't know what stamp set this is. I got several little sets at Target for $1 each a couple months back. I like the way this one turned out. : )

Stamps: Unsure.
Paper: Paper Studio CS, My Minds Eye DP from Hobby Lobby, manila folder.
Ink: Colorbox Queue, Distress Ink
Accessories: Button, ribbon, Coluzzle
