I have some important masculine birthdays that always creep up on me the first week of the new year... I typically don't get their cards mailed off in time, but I always think about these special men (my father-in-law for one!) on their special day. Here is a card that I made for these guys - and in order to dust off my stamp table from the long holiday sabbatical and ease my way back into card-making, I CASEd this one from my good friend, Marelle:
The photo doesn't do this card justice for some reason, but it really is a rich, beautiful look. It says Happy Birthday on the inside. On the envelope, I also stamped "...and you thought I forgot" from A Little Birthday Cheer just for fun!
Again, Happy New Year, and I hope you're off to a great start!
