Embedded Embossing Technique Birthday Card

Well, I had to get inspired to make some male birthday cards this week, we have three male members of the family with birthdays in the next four days.  I was inspired by Gretchen Barron and her Polka Dot Birthday, but I had to change it up and put my twist to it.  This is one of the techniques that we will be learning on 3/2 Technique Class.  Hope my brother-in-law and two nephews enjoy their cards.  These were clean and simple cards to make, I have two Girl Scout Troops that I will be making cards with in March and these would be an excellent choice for them to make.  I'll have to see...

Debbie, this is such a FUN color combo! Great technique and I love how you used the Top Note to frame it. :)

Very nice for a simple card, and great colors for a masculine theme. Why is it so hard to come up with great designs for the men in our lives? I will be keeping this one in mind for a couple I have coming up soon, too! Thanks for sharing!
