It's your birthday - Cardz 4 Guyz #280

Tuesday September 21, 2021


It's time for a new challenge over at

I am the host so I chose the theme to be

For my card I first chose the metal. I had asked hubby what should I use.. He said wait just a min. and went to the recycle can and pulled out the top of the foil that covers the new opened can of coffee.. So I took it and embossed the piece.. then I should of known better ran it through a stitch rectangle die. which took away the embossing.. Gesh. I should of known better but I didn't want to lost the stitching so guess it's one or the other.. I am glad with the final and it does show a little embossing. I looked for papers and went to Cosmo Cricket as it kinda has a masculine look.. it' cardz 4 guyz.. and laid out the papers and metal.. It needed something else so used a Paper Trey Ink tablet tab die and cut the alphabet paper. Then I took black card stock and die cut the Taylored Expressions flowers 4 times and layered. I added them and then the Simon Says sentiments to some scraps of Quick Quote paper. I used Tech. Tues. dies and cut the sentiments out. I added and then added a few more metal blings to the bottom. 

Beyond the blue #32 - let it shimmer
Creative fingers #215 - anything goes
Scrapping 4 fun #201 - autumn (colors and flower)
Dream valley #255 - 2 or more pattern papers
Crafting happiness #114 - anything goes
