BIL Birthday

I always find it hard to make masculine birthday cards- I need more manly stamp sets! One of my favourites is the Loads of Love stamp set from Stampin' Up, and I have used the truck stamp for lots of cards. I had my brother in law's birthday in the weekend and wanted to make him a simple card.

The latest Seize The Birthday sketch is:


And here is my take on it:

I embossed the brown cardstock with a woodgrain embossing folder to give it a really rustic feel. The sentiment was printed out from my computer as I couldn't find any sentiments large enough to go with how I wanted the card to look. I stamped the truck and cut it out using the Creative Memories Custom Cutting System with oval patterns, and did the same with a larger oval with some patterned paper that had a rustic look to it as well. My finishing touch was some brads on the wheels.
Happy birthday to my brother in law!
