True Gentleman Personalized Birthday Card

How to Make a Personalized Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

It's hard to believe that my baby boy just turned 28!  Of course, such a momentous occasion calls for a handmade card, because that's what I do!   Bryan is a Forester so I used the Seasonal Layers Dies along with the Large Numbers die to make a personalized Birthday Card just for him.


Bryan is my son with a ready smile.  I snapped this picture of him when we were in the midst of making Maple Syrup.  Happy Birthday, Bryan!

I love this sentiment stamp from the Number of years stamp set.  It sums up how I feel about Bryan.  And the True Gentleman Designer Paper has such a masculine feel.  It's a sure fire win for cards for the guys.  If you find yourself having a hard time coming up with ideas for making masculine cards, try starting with a good masculine paper.

What a perfect card for a handsome guy!! My oldest son is 22 and I know they are very hard to make cards for - at least cards that they would actually like. I think you've done perfectly. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
