It's Time to Celebrate

I'm trying to catch up on masculine cards but when it comes to making one it always poses a challenge.

The sketch over the Seize the Birthday provided a good starting point:

But  I realized that I don't have that many manly papers or stamps.  I'm using my trusted Lucky paper and some retired stamps for this card:

The clock and the houndstooth pattern came from an old Stamp of the Month called Wonderful Friend, while the letters came from Tiny Typewriter Alphabet and Vintage Type.  I'm glad that the pocket watch is finally seeing ink!  I think it shares the same vintage feel with the Lucky paper and am happy to put them together.

This card is also entering the challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Spring Forward, Time, Clock etc.  Have you heard of the March Madness that is going on?  No, not the sports, but over at H2H challenge.  Hop over to check it out and enjoy the artwork by fellow crafters!


  1. Wonderful card for a guy! Love the way you overlapped the letters for the sentiment too.
    Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday.

  2. Perfect masculine card and great colors. So glad you joined us this week at Seize the Birthday.
