An Easy, Quick Masculine Birthday Card

This week I thought I'd share a card that I just made for my brother-in-law's birthday.  It was a last-minute card (Shh, don't tell!), so it had to be easy and quick. 

To make this card, I first created a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch base from kraft cardstock.  Then I cut a banner just slightly smaller than the card base from one of the papers in the Echo Park Note to Self  6 x 6 paper pad.  I then cut 2 smaller banners from papers in the same collection, and I stamped sentiments from the Stampin' Up B*Y*O*P set on them.  I used my Tiny Attacher to staple the smaller banners to the large one.  To add a little "fun" to the card, I tied some brown twine and added a bow from a small scrap of beige twine that I had.  I stamped "Happy Birthday" from the same stamp set, and I called it done.  It actually took me only about 20 minutes to make, and it's perfect for a gift card!

Thanks for visiting, and remember to always be unique!
