Happy Birthday To My Brilliant Son

I've been creating a lot of custom cards the last few weeks as well as stocking our new shop with our ready made inventory and it has made life pretty busy!

I had the opportunity to create a birthday card for a fellow card maker's son. The request was for a birthday card, no direction, color scheme, idea... etc. And those are sometimes hard when you want to ensure the card is exactly what the "customer" wants.

I was drawn to this set of papers for a masculine birthday card. I figured the woodgrain paper would add enough visual texture so the card could remain fairly flat. A single silver brad is the only raised element on this card front. 

I don't know much about her son except: he likes football, he has 4 beautiful children and a lovely wife, and he is a Pastor. That is about all I know... well, he apparently has an amazing sense of humor... I give you the inside sentiment as proof~ ;)

I wanted to add some detail to the card front so I used some stitched edge dies and created all the panels with those. I figured, masculine but detailed... right? 

I would really love to know what you think of my card today. I love blog comments!
