Passages Man Card







This afternoon I used a 5 x 7 inch aqua cardstock and matching envelope as a starter to begin building a man's birthday card. (After taking the photos, I realize I got too carried away with the ink-distressing. Hope to remember that next time!)


I love the colors in the Close To My Heart Passages paper kit -- by using the aqua, I brought out the aqua in the patterned paper that I used on the card front. Aqua is his favorite color.


Before adhering the front completely, I sized a pullout section for the "Happy Birthday" sentiment. On the back of the pullout, I added a square of ivory cardstock so I have a place to write a short note to the special man who will celebrate his birthday later this week. I didn't adhere the top so that I can insert a gift card as a surprise.


The CTMH Mocha pearl accents are lucious. I started with the second darkest color in the packet and then added the darkest chocolate flavor--I mean color!


I used: Close To My Heart Passages papers; Celebrate the Everyday stamp set; Mocha Gems embellies; Brown Bag and Barn Red inks.

Thanks for stopping by & commenting! Have a GREAT new week!
