CAS(e) for the Guys

Hi Lovelies,

I hope you don't mind me posting about our holiday (see previous posts).  I wanted to share some of my "family" life with you all.

Anyway onto today's post, which is all about CAS(e) this Sketch latest sketch.  When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of a male birthday card.    I don't know why but lately I have been seeing guy cards everywhere & they inspired me to make one today.  



I really love the simple lines of the sketch & I'm really happy with my card.  I decided to put the sentiment on either side of the horizontal strip, so you could see it clearly.  Which let me use the whole sentiment that way.  Normally I just use the Happy Birthday part of this stamp.  Yes I do cut up my stamps (& sometimes I even manage not to lose them lol) as they then give me more choices when I use them. Another reason I love this sketch is I used up scraps to make this card.  I am a lover of scraps being used up.  It's so satisfying seeing scraps used & making a wonderful card/project with them.  

Thanks for stopping by today & happy crafting my friends

Supplies:
Card base
Pattern Paper - Darling Dear by My Mind's Eye
Hero Arts - CL272 All Occasion messages & tree stamp
Ink - Onyx Black by Versafine
