Pup masculine birthday card

Masculine birthday card featuring Party Patch digital stamp from Di's Digi Stamps, by Paperesse.

This birthday card for a male friend of ours features the Party Patch digital stamp from Di's Digi Stamps. I added the birthday sentiment with Euphoria Script font.

I used some recycled bits from my scrap bin for the paper. This was some of the leftovers from the four birthday cards I made in 2016 for the #150 Issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine. It was a great paper pack from the now defunct Tactile Studio. Such a shame; she had some great papers.

I used my Toga polaroid die (DCG 509) to frame the image and added a strip of crinkled paper ribbon and a few buttons for embellishment. This is one of my favorite dies. It seems like every card I use it on turns out great (like this Bobblehead Christmas Santa card) . Search the blog for 'polaroid' and you'll see what I mean.
