Masculine birthday Card

   September is going to be here shortly.  It is a month of birthdays.  Not only are my daughter & granddaughter's birthdays in September, but a nephew, uncle & brother-in-law are also turning a year older.  My nephew is the first one to celebrate his birthday in September.  Like many other crafters, creating masculine cards are difficult for me.  
  I knew I wanted to use the woodgrain IP and the sentiment from my newly acquired Think Big Favorites #7: "Birthday Wishes".  Wanting to use an image other than cupcakes, I chose the birthday present from the Make A Wish Additions stamp set.  The middle present is propped up with dimensionals



     Here's a look at the inside.


    Thanks for looking.

Supplies: CS Kraft, Ripe Avacodo , Dark Chocolate
Stamps: PTI: Make A Wish Additions, Think Big Favorites #7; Stampendous: cupcake; Northwoods Birthday Sentiment 2002
IP: Woodgrain
Other: Pattern paper, dimensionals, copic markers
