So I struggle just like everyone to make male birthday cards. Last night my mojo was right on target. I embossed lines with my score tool to create a background. I used papertrey inks. I used Darcie beer mug and heat embossed "Happy Beer*th Day"
This card I used the Tim Holtz's gear dies cut from Gray, kraft, black and metallic copper card stocks. All scraps. I used my cricut to print the "Geared Up..." sentiment with copper pen.
