Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and you are all keeping well.

Today I have a Male Birthday Card for you.
I made this for my my stepdaughter's husband who has his own building business.

This is a 8"x8" size card I made from 2 A4 sheets of craft card as I had some craft envelopes to use up..
The work tools images are Hunkydory from one of their books of images.
They are made from quite thin paper so I glued then to card and edged them with a brown promarker.
All in all a quick card to make only one die cut involved the Happy Birthday.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

What a fabulous set of images, I was a bit shocked to see all the yellow on the thumbnail but on a closer look, it certainly is the perfect colour for builders. Fab male card and a great design too.

Oh Jenny, what a wonderful card for someone in construction. All the images relate and I like that color combination of blue and yellow. I love how you personalize the card for the person receiving it.

What a fabulous masculine card Jenny! I love all the tools you have, the edging with the marker really makes them pop. As always your inside is just as wonderful as your outside. A great card for a person who works in the building industry! Hope you are doing well Jenny! Hugs, Brenda

Looks like you had the perfect toppers for a building contractor Jenny. What a brilliant card. thank you for the tip for making them a bit thicker, what a good idea. Thank goodness for the cooler weather, although I am not a fan of the high winds!! The British weather just cannot get it right!! xx

This is a fabulous male card and a perfect theme for your Stepdaughter's husband. I'm finding Hunkydory images very useful at the moment, they seem to fit all my card orders that I'm getting asked to do right now.
