Trend-Alert Tuesday – banner card

Hi again

Here’s an idea I had for a card on the on-trend bunting or banner theme… this time a masculine idea.
I need a card for the birthday of a dear friend’s hubby next week and thought it would be a good chance to get this ready for him.

Remembering my usual ‘techniques’ for guy cards…
CAS design… Keep the embellishments to a minimum… Stick to bold or monochrome colours…. Steer clear of flowers, bling and ribbons….

The banner stickers (Jenni Bowlin Studios ‘Flag Banners’) were great to add a personal touch with his name – I used Doodlebug Design rub-ons:

The strip of birthday paper across the bottom is trimmed from Jillibean Soup ‘Spotted Owl Soup – 3 Dancing Hats’.

Thanks for stopping by then folks, see you again soon, Rx

  1. Great masculine card. The happy birthday music strip at the bottom is a wonderful touch. It’s terrific that you personalized the card with Pete’s name on the banner!
