As I'm always telling you I hardly ever get a chance to make cards just for fun but recently I have actually forced some time for getting the craft box open and recently I had an extra excuse when one of our good friends had a birthday..
Oh no, the dreaded male birthday card..don't we all cringe just a little when we need to make a card for a man. Out go the flowers, glitter (usually) and other standard card making essentials as chaps just are not interested in that sort of stuff!! Ivor is a landscape gardener so he is a bit of an outside sort of lad but still I don't think he would put up with a flower on his birthday card!!
I decided to make this card pretty simple but to really grunge it up using black inks not just around the edges but actually on the main body of the card as well. I used papers from my Funky Daze CD Rom and the topper is a happy birthday sticker I have had forever..sorry I can't remember where it is from.
After a bit of grunging and layering all it needed to finish it off was some simple straight (ish) lines doodled with a black Sakura jelly roll pen.
