Here's another easy masculine birthday card.....just used patterned paper and coordinating embellishments!
Cut a strip of the patterned paper and applied to a grey cardstock base. The banners are chipboard stickers that coordinate with the patterned paper pad. I ran a hemp cord through the pre-punched hole in the banners and adhered them to the card. The banner strip under the sentiment and the paper used for the sentiment are all from the same paper pad. The sentiment was adhered to the card with double-sided foam tape. Finally, I added a few black pearls and voila!! Easy peasy!!
