I made this masculine birthday card a couple of weeks ago. The base and mats are from 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk collection.
All the other bits and bobs are Tim Holtz Idea-ology ephemera and industrial stickers. The die I used for the piece at the top is Alterations Torn Notebook. The clip is also from Idea-ology.
I always have to stick a flower in somewhere, even on a "man card". This is one of Petaloo's teastained blue dahlias. I took off the stamens and added a Prima screw head for the center. I cut the tag with Alterations Tiny Tabs & Tags and tied on a natural burlap string bow.
The Penmaker is keeping that lathe of his smoking'. Here are a couple of new writing instruments he's made lately.
