Everyday Cricut Day 2 ~ Masculine Birthday!

 
 Hello my crafty friends!  If you didn't see my post yesterday, I'm thrilled to be a guest designer this week at Everyday Cricut!  Crazy, huh!!! 
Today I wanted to make a masculine card.  I don't know about you, but I never have enough of them.  I used  my new cartridge, Suburbia!  This cartridge has so many masculine images, that it made it easy!  This is a great retro cartridge too!
 
 

After inking all my pieces, I cut a slit on the top layer of the typewriter to add the "paper" with "happy birthday to you" stamped on it.

 
I also added a some burlap and hemp for more texture.  Oh yeah, I managed to leave the glitter off this one! lol
 
Recipe:
Suburbia Cricut Cartridge
typewriter cut at 1.96 x 1.42 and layers to match
man cut at 1.24 x 3.23 and layer to match
Campin Critters Cricut Cartridge
label cut at 4.99x 3.27 and 5.17 x 3.39
Liz's Paper Loft Boutique ~ 1mm green hemp, 1 1/2 natural burlap
My Creative Time ~ Celebrate Good Times stamp set
ink
paper: Papertrey Ink, My Minds Eye
 
In honor of my week over at Everyday Cricut I'm having a giveaway!  All you have to do is leave a comment and your contact info here and on Everyday Cricut!  I'll pick one winner for this Limited Edition Metallic Hemp on Saturday, October 20!

 
 
I'll be back tomorrow with another fun project for you!
 
Enjoy!

Wonderful masculine card. Masculine cards are more difficult for me to make. My hubby likes tools so I use tool images in my cards for him. Thanks for giveaway chance.
