One more birthday card

I've mentioned numerous times that masculine cards are difficult.  Then yesterday I said that masculine cards for young gentlemen are even more difficult.  I decide to challenge myself to make two in a row!  And of course, you know, I have all those materials out already, why not use the same bundle to create a different card?

This time I'm using the circle die in the Stitched Party Banner die sets.  The stitches truly add a special touch to the circles.  I went ahead and die cut many of them then arranged them on a red cardstock to become a background.  Then I used the happy birthday sentiment from the Lawn Fawn #awesome set on a light green strip of cardstock.  Finally I stamped the robot, the cupcake and the gift, colored them and cut them out, assembled them and it's done.  Oh yes, the robot from yesterday's card has one empty hand but today's robot has his hands fully occupied. :)

Now that I have two on hand, I should be done with young gentlemen's birthday cards this year.  I am moving onto my next category!

I'm linking up my card to:
