Masculine 60th Birthday Card

       Hi everyone!  I am finally posting one of my cards from the DTGD challenges. This was one of my favorites. I made it for my brother-in-law's 60th birthday.  I wanted it to be special, so I incorporated his photo on it to personalize it.
        I used Tim Holtz Artful Muse set of Embossing Folders to make it masculine.  These are small folders, so I was able to fold the man holding the umbrella embossing folder  over the top of the card stock to run thru the Big Shot.  Then I folded the cogs&wheels folder  over the card stock  from the bottom.  I used the arrows on the card because we were to point something out on  one of the challenges.  I know that arrows are popular now, but as of yet I have no dies for them, so these were handmade. :)  The circles and squares are part of a challenge requirement also. The sentiment was computer generated. All paper is SU!                        Challenges are so fun, because by the time you use all the required elements, you have your card!  I thought this turned out to be a fun card and already mailed it; I hope he likes it.

This card was made for the following  Splitcoast challenges:

F4A180"Point it Out"
AOCC13 (All Occasion Card Challenge)

Thank you for stopping by  and for your comments!  Have a great day!


  1. Great idea to add his picture to the card. I like the embossing folder you used.

  2. Wow! What a layout. This is just spectacular! Love the embossing and the colors just pop right out at you! The picture makes it just perfect with the arrows pointing down.

  3. I just love how you used the embossing folders! What a wonderful layout! Great card!!
