Make it Monday: masculine card No.1

I don’t know about you, but I love January! I have more time to get on top of making birthdays cards for the coming months and have already made quite a few  for kids. And men’s cards? Not so successful!! I always struggle to come up with ideas so last week I challenged myself to design 4 masculine cards using the Wood Textures paper from Stampin’ Up; I’ll share them with you over the next few days:

For this first one I chose the log patterned paper and fussy cut a section to create the look of stacked logs:

I heat embossed the “Happy Birthday” in white onto the black cardstock panel and it looks really effective! The card is multilayered and the white card base helps to bring the design to life:

I hope you can use this idea of cutting out a section of patterned paper to make a card front! Thanks so much for visiting me today and I’ll post the second card tomorrow 🙂 Megan xo
