Happy Birthday Uncle Bruce

Posted on

Hello and welcome to the weekend! Happy Saturday everyone! I’m off to Manhattan today to see some friends and it’s supposed to be a nice day for the most part so it will be a good time! For today’s card I’m posting my Uncle Bruce’s birthday card. He lives in London, England and he is by far one of the funniest people I know. Masculine cards can be a challenge so I have some go to sets, one of my favorites is The Open Sea Stamp Set. It has been a write in item since it made it’s debut in the Summer Mini Catalog last year. The base of the card is Not Quite Navy. A piece of paper from the Well Worn Designer Series Paper pack creates the background for the card. The images and greeting are stamped in Not Quite Navy, except for the ship which is stamped in Early Espresso. The greeting is from two sets, Family Reunion and Occasions Alphabet. They are all stamped on Very Vanilla and mounted on Cajun Craze. I had to keep the embellishments to a minimum seeing as it was being sent overseas. This is a nice simple masculine card with great rich colors. I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and thank you so much for taking some time to pay me a visit. Have an great day! 🙂
