For my design I decided to use a new set of Stampin'Up! stamps I acquired recently. It was a free gift with an order of a certain amount as part of their 'Saleabrations' event. I think the images in the set are perfect for male cards.
I stamped all the images using Memento Rich Cocoa ink then fussy cut them all out. The background was created using a strip of SU! Crumb Cake cardstock with a strip of vintage looking Washi Tape attached across the centre. I added two thin strips of gold mirror card top and bottom of the Crumbcake layer.
My Dad is staying with me for a few weeks (a lovely treat !) he's also a cardmaker and helped me with the card by making the lovely rosette from a piece of paper from my stash. I cut the numbers out using a set of dies by Memory Box - I love these alphabet dies as they are a great size for cardmaking and scrapbooking, cut crisply and the cardstock doesn't get stuck inside the dies.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set cut out using a die from a set by Spellbinders.
