Birthday Card for My Hubby

Pin It
Last week was my husband's birthday so I made him a manly card, hahaha well semi-manly. The tin man is definitely more manly than say a teddy bear, right? I actually was hoping the tin man came off more like a robot, which I think it did. I used a woodgrain paper from Studio Calico and distressed it with my Tim Holtz Distressing tool and ran over the distressed bits with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Totes manly, no? ;) For the banner I stapled it on slightly askew with my Tiny Attacher, also from Tim Holtz. The super cute Tin Man is from Karber's new clear stamp set, Karber Wizard of Oz! The Balloon is from Lawn Fawn's Admit One stamp set and the happy birthday sentiment is also from Lawn Fawn and is part of their Sophie's Sentiments set.

Thanks so much for dropping by!

Inky and glittery handsome fingers for all!

I entered this card to Lawnscaping Challenges #28: Distress Mania!
