While it hasn’t been every Monday, it seems about once per week, I’ve given you a sample for those sometimes challenging cards for men. This Monday a bright birthday card fits that bill. I think you will like the color combination and the layout that I used with the Better Together stamp set.

The layout was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Design Notes for Better Together Card:

I love the color combination!

 

Are you wondering about the middle part? I used a Sponge Brayer and some Blueberry Bushel ink on the inside of the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder. After you ink up one side of the folder, carefully place the card stock and run it through the Big Shot. I inked up the front part of the folder, where the title is. I thought the dots echoed the dots on the In Color 6″ x 6″ Designer Paper.

The rest of the card is pretty straightforward – clean and simple is good!
