For the boys...


There's a lot of men in our family and I find it really hard to find a handmade birthday card that's not too girly. When I found these metal alphabets I decided they would make the perfect 'manly' embellishment. And of course Basic Grey's Archaic paper just works perfectly with them. The next time I make this design I'm going to change it slightly and add a mat of darker colored paper behind the patterned cardstock - just to soften the contrast between the white card blank and the patterned paper.
