Male Birthday


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As it is a brand new month we have a new challenge hostess which is Vicky Gould.

Apparently today is Vicky’s son-in-law’s birthday, so she has challenge us to make a masculine birthday card! Use brown, tan and green.

If you follow my blog, then you know that for the past couple of weeks I have been playing with the new Karen Burniston Pop N Cuts dies from Sizzix. I have been having so much fun and today I am using one of my favorites from Karen’s Journey collection …. the chair pop n cuts insert.

I die cut the chair pop n cuts using the original Pop N Cuts base die from brown card and then I die cut the floor, walls and chair again using various designer papers to decorate my card. I also used the Sizzix Foyer Set Embossing Folder also designed by Karen to decorate my ‘pop up room’. Finishing it off with various stamps I found in my stash. Of course I had to put an owl in the photo frame ha ha!

I think I might save this for my DH’s birthday which is coming up next month.


Here is the front of my card … I added a birthday sentiment (MFT) and used the Sizzix Funky Labels Framelits.


Here is one last view of the inside of my card.

As soon as I saw even the first bit of this card as I scrolled down the page I knew it just had to be yours. What a sweet scene - down to the little owl picture on the wall, and man's best friend by the chair.
