The Hero Arts blog is having a big birthday celebration with a five category challenge for birthday cards. I recently purchased the Hero Arts "Five Line" Background stamp and made two masculine birthday cards from one piece of paper embossed in gold. I'm entering both into the "metallic birthday card" challenge.
The first is a simple card made by punching two tags from the Tag Sale #5 one in chocolate brown and one from the stamped piece embossed in gold. I added some American Craft Thickers for the sentiment and a simple gold brad to connect the tags. I'm also linking this to the new Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Tag It!
For the second card, I cut a strip of the stamped piece and adhered it to a Hero Arts kraft card. I embossed a tag from Papertrey's 2012 Birthday Tags in gold for the sentiment. Here's a closer look:
My brother-in-law and my niece's husband both celebrate their birthdays this month, so now I'm all set for both occasions.
