Manly Monday 50th

Welcome back to Manly Monday. I have a bunch of great cards for you to go see for some guy card inspiration. Leave them a comment. Everyone loves comments. Then check out my cards at the bottom.








I made these two cards at the same time for a relatives birthday. Then I let my husband choose which one he liked best. The 50's were cut out using my Cricut and then inked them with distress ink by Ranger Industries. I sprayed the top card's 50 with a little bit of water. The "Th" are Quickutz dies and the word birthday is made up using an alphabet stamp by Lawn Fawn. The top embossing folder is by Cuttlebug and the bottom by Darice. Both are very manly in my opinion. The top card has eyelets by Making Memories and some braiding by Allary. The second card has a series of circle punches by Creative Memories and also EK Success. The last circle has been stamped by a Stampin Up set Open Seas and a brad in the center. I'm not really sure where the cardstock is from but I would guess the navy blue by Stampin Up and the kraft by Oriental Trading Co.

Thanks for looking.
