Autumn Birthday

This is a a nice masculine birthday card using the Autumn Days stamp set and On Your Birthday sentiment stamp set. The background paper is Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper. If you check out my post from Friday, you will see I've used the same stamp set and Designer Series Paper but achieved a totally different look.

A couple of things I want to note: I lightly roughed the edges of the focal layer of Very Vanilla cardstock with the distressing tool from the Cutter Kit (p. 191 of the Idea Book & Catalog) and then sponged Soft Suede ink on the edges. The Soft Suede ribbon is the opposite side of the Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon.

Here is the recipe:

Stamp Sets: Autumn Days, On Your Birthday
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper
Inks: Soft Suede Classic Ink
Other: Cutter Kit, 1/16 Handheld Circle Punch, Gold Brads, Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon, Linen Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stampin'!
