Manly Mondays

Manly Mondays

Hello from a somewhat blizzardy day in northern Alberta.  I played hooky for most of the day where I escaped to catch a matinée of Bohemian Rhapsody.  Rami Malek was born to portray Freddie Mercury.  Highly recommend this movie !

For this week’s Manly Mondays I chose to make a whimsical birthday card.  I started with a base of Shaded Spruce and used Animal Expedition Designer Paper (recently featured on the Clearance Rack).

I die cut the Rhino with the Animal Friends Thinlits Die and attached it to the card with dimensionals.  On Crush Curry I stamped the sentiment from the Darling Label Punch Box twice using Shaded Spruce Classic Ink.  I punched one sentiment then trimmed the “Birthday” with paper snips on the other and attached that to the punch out with a dimensional.  I couldn’t find the mini ones so I used a regular size that I cut in 3.  Worked perfectly.

I love that ALL designer papers now have the coordinating colors written on the back of the package.  Sure helps in choosing colors to go with the paper.

Talk soon !!
