A Swirly Masculine Birthday Card

G'day all!

No, that's not a greeting native to Wisconsin; I was just in the mood!

I think I've mentioned that in my HR role, I send birthday cards to each of our employees. When I first started, I knew I couldn't send 'just a birthday card'. So I started making cards to send. I work in health care, which employs a majority of females, but we do have our guys to celebrate too!

Making a dozen plus cards each month is a great way for me to use my vintage stock and no matter the vintage, the cards are appreciated!

This week I needed a masculine card, so I started flipping through my DSP. Hmmmm, nope that won't work. Wellllll - nah, I don't think so. I finally got to a Huh! I think that's it! Okay, we have a base and some DSP, now what? Tah Dah! This is my final product.


I made a half dozen of these, which will last for a couple months. Out of 160 employees, we have maybe a dozen guys. Any of you moms out there looking for a place for your son to meet a woman - tell him to get a job in health care and he'll have lots of choices!!

The sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set, cropped with the Decorative Label punch. The ovals were cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits. I used dimensionals between the Night of Navy and Crumb Cake ovals. You likely recognize the Swirly Scribble die cut that added the perfect touch. An easy card to make and I now have one less piece of DSP!

Stop back on Thursday to see what I made for the ladies. To be sure you don't miss it, follow me by email; simply enter your email address in the required field in the right column.

Until next time, take gentle care,
