Happy Birthday Grandad!

Today is my Grandad Roy's birthday! So today i would like to show you the card i made him! I always find it tough to make cards for men, but recently i have been picking up lots of great ideas!! I have seen several shirt and tie cards before and thought i'd give it a go - i couldn't believe how quick and easy this card was to make!! (There are tonnes of variations of this style online, and several tutorials, so why not give it a try?!)

The card base is 'Bashful Blue', i have used a square of 'Brights DSP' to create the tie with origami folds. The line drawn down the centre was with my 'Night of Navy' 'Stampin' Write Marker'. The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is from the 'Plane and Simple' stampset (a new mini catalogue wonder!!) also inked in 'Night of Navy) Check back here soon for more cards made using the 'Plane and Simple' stampset!


  1. Love this card! You will have to teach us this type of card at craft club!!

  2. No problem!! It's very simple!! But a great card for men!! A perfect fathers day card!
