Happy Birthday, Man!

How hard is it to make a card for a guy?  HARD.  I am in love with the Engraved Greetings stamp set for this very reason.  It's my go-to set for last minute cards - they seem to come together in about 5 minutes and create a simple, yet elegant result.

(all materials are from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated)
  • Engraved Greetings Stamp Set
  • Early Espresso Ink Pad
  • Early Espresso Smooth Card Stock
  • Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch*
  • Thoroughly Modern Designer Series Paper
  • Bronze Pearls (from the dollar section at Michael's)
*Designer's Note:
I used the scraps from the Ribbon Punch to make the two little borders that line the sides of the stamp.  Anytime I use this punch with cardstock, I save those little edges.  They make perfect accent borders!!
