I was commissioned to make this card a little while ago. I got the image from KennyK just before they closed their on-line shop, and I think she makes a wonderful male birthday card!
I kept the layout pretty simple - rounding the corners of the image, adding a black peel-off, stamping the age and heat embossing with black embossing powder, and writing the recipients name. I used a black base card and stamped some cogs from Crafter's Companion along the edges, and heat embossed in bronze before layering the image panel on top.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Card Making and Papercraft - Magic Metallic
scrapbook stamp society -Anything Goes
inkspirational #147 Trend (Cogs are very trendy for male cards - and the girl looks very trendy too)
addicted-to-stamps #156 Autumn (I have used autumnal colours)
catch the bug - Anything Goes
I got the last of my potatoes out of their pot:
