Hey crafty friends.  Today I’m sharing what is supposed to be a masculine card for a teenage boy.  I struggle so much with cards for guys and I’m not really all that psyched about this one, but it wasn’t terrible, so I thought I’d share it anyway.  We are all our own worst critics, right?  Anyway, I used some really cool dies on this card from Cheery Lynn Designs along with some fun burlap sting and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I pulled out my stash of Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink papers to find a nice brown for the owl.  I backed the paper with Stick It adhesive and cut it out.  I also added some wiggle eyes for fun.  I also used part of the Ivy Corner Flourish as a place for my owl to sit.  
Cheery Lynn Dies used:
I stamped the birthday sentiment and then cut it out with the oval dies.  I wrapped some burlap string around the top of the card and mounted the sentiment over that.  I also added some burlap string loops to the top of the sentiment.  I wanted to continue the steampunk type theme so I also added some Metal Gear Embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon to finish it off.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Happy Crafting!
