Male Birthday Cards

I have to confess that I am not a card maker (as you’ll see), but at this time of year, it can’t be helped for me.  My son celebrated his birthday last month as do many of his friends.  So the fantastic Attitude! collection came in handy and actually made card making easy.

I’ll start off with the card for my DS.  I used the Attitude! 6 1/2 x 6 1/2″ Paper Pad.  There are lots of designs to choose from – I chose a selection of patterned, embossed and metallic papers.

My main idea with this card was to use lots of layers to get a luxurious look. Using different textures is perfect to give the card a ‘grunge’ feel. You can see the metallic first, then the glazed number sheet.  This is brilliant to swipe a little ink over to really accent the glazed numbers. The white mesh came from a DIY shop.

It’s a great idea to save a pair of old jeans.  Rip a strip of denim off the jeans to make a great tactile embellishment.

I used a couple of the die cuts from the Attitude! Collectables pack. I love these packs as there are always so many to choose from.

This card was even easier to make but I think looks effective.  I cut out the journal card from the Prank paper before matting it onto several layers of cardstock.  I used a couple of sheets from the 6 1/2 x 6 1/2″ paper pad as the base.

I layered the graffiti style paper over the polka dot and then added a row of staples.

I also decorated the inside of the card with more papers from the 6 1/2″ paper pad and created an easy pocket to hold the money or gift card.

I have a few more cards to share so be sure to pop back for more inspiration soon.
