A cork card!

In keeping with my plan to catch up on my birthday cards I'm late on, I thought I would start with the hardest one first.  The dreaded "man" birthday!  Why is it cards for men are always so hard to make?  I decided to try something different & stamp on some cork sheets I had in my stash. 

The stamp is from Inkadinkado. I ran my cardstock thru one of my embossing folders to give it more texture. The die cuts were made with Spellbinder & Die-Namics dies & the sentiment is from Stampabilities.
This is actually my second post for today so if you missed the first one, please scroll down.
I am going to enter this card in The Paper Shelter-challenge#20-Anything Goes and also in the
2 Sisters Challenge blog challenge#46-Birthdays. 

Have a great 4th everyone! Catch you all later!


  1. Clever use of alternatives I love your card design to. Thanks for joining us at TPS, good luck with the Challenge. hugs Shirleyxxxxx

  2. I just had to stop by. I saw your card on Gail's sidebar and just loved it. I got a kick out of the name of your blog. I have four cats. I can't count how many times one of them stole a ribbon or embellishment off a card I was working on. Now when I leave my craft table I have to make sure everything is covered. Pesky animals, but they're cute.
