Birthday Sundaes Challenge #11 - Masculine Birthday

Hello Everyone!  It's time for another Birthday Sundaes challenge!  No pearls or lace this week!  Our challenge this week is Masculine Birthday Cards!   Here is my simple, Masculine Birthday card!

This card is dear to my heart because my father picked out this bear stamp before he passed away.  It comes from Sutter Stamps and they have wonderful selection of wildlife stamps.  

I heat embossed the bear with Black Embossing Powder.  The detail on it is amazing!

The sentiment is from My Craft Spot Sweet Sentiments Set #1.  I couldn't resist adding some sort of embellishment so I added Black Licorice Bakers Twine and a Button!

 Products Used:
  • Stampin' Up! Cardstock, Ink, Embossing Powder
  • Sutter Stamps Bear Stamp
  • My Craft Spot Sweet Sentiments Set #1 stamp
  • My Craft Spot Bakers Twine
  • Button is from my stash
Now I'm sure many of you could use a few Masculine Birthday cards in your stash so I hope you'll be playing along with us this week!  The Birthday Sundaes Design Team has come up with some wonderful inspiration!  Make sure you stop by, show them some love and link up your card!  Thanks for stopping by!

Your father had good taste, it's a wonderful image and looks fantastic with the heat embossing. I like how you added the twine and put the button on it. I have so much twine that needs to be used!

Great card - and perfect for a guy! The heat embossing on the bear is fantastic. I always forget about heat embossing.
I'm so sorry to read about your dad. How wonderful that you could think of him as you made this card.
