 The next challenge for this week, make a masculine card with a calendar with month on it.  I went to Print-a-calendar.com and was able to print off the whole years calendars in small enough that it would work for a card. I cut out the month I wanted it and circled his birthday. Got it done just in time to get it out in the mail :)

I went through all my stamps and found one that I thought could go with the calendar and I stamped a birthday message on it. Sorry I don't know the maker of this stamp.

This is my first time using this embossing folder for the background too, I just embossed it and then inked over the raised area. I cut the stamp piece out with scissors and matted the calendar onto some black cardstock. Added a few metal accents and that was it.

  • Spellbinders - Laser beams embossing folder, inked raised areas with brown ink
  • Print-a-calendar.com for calendar
  • Stamp unknown
  • Decorative Scissors
  • Ki - metal accents

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

This is a fabulous masculine card, Connie! The embossing looks great in the background. I love the little calendar page with the date circled. Cute!
