A Masculine Birthday

It is December, which means, another birthday!  My oldest brother is turning well, lets just say, he's one year wiser at the beginning of this month.  And just like any other paper crafter, I always make my cards - I mean, why buy them, when you can make something just as pretty?  Besides, it gives me an excuse to play with all my crafty goodness.  On this card, I wanted to try a technique I recently saw, but can't remember where and can't find it now.....  Either way, the individual stamped on a PTI Canvas and Linen Impression plate before placing the image on her card to give it a worn look.  It looked absolutely beautiful!  I used the current sketch (#246) from Card Positioning System. Here is a close up of how it looks on my card:
Is it not just yummy?  The best part is that this technique goes fabulously with boy-related projects because of the subtle worn and tattered look it gives.  I just love it, and will definitely be adding this to my "man crafting arsenal."  And here is another close up just for fun:

Last:  Let me appologize for the long delays between posts at the moment.  But I am on a 6-week vacation in Washington at the moment and have limited access to my crafting supplies as I was limited in what I could bring and left much at home.... regardless, I am enjoying my break and holidays!

Thanks for stopping by!
