Happy 40th Birthday...

Happy Happy 40th birthday for yesterday to my BIL, I hope you have a fantastic night tonight, its sure is going to be fun lol.  Here is the card i made for him! I love how it turned out.

Inside of the card, even the little squares on the left have been cut out.

I think this is the only male card I will get away using pretty ribbon lol.


Stamp Sets:Bring on the cake
Ink Pads: Soft suede, real red, black stampin write marker.
Cardstock: Crumb cake, Whisper white
Tools:  Cropadile, craft knife, circle scissor plus and glass mat
Other:black taffeta ribbon,



  1. OK....Total WOW Miss Mel. I love this idea....and not only because I have 2 baseballers in the house!!! This is a cracking male card and so v v clever. Just Brilliant!! ooxx

  2. That is one cool card Melissa!! Must have taken you ages to cut everything out. Love that you could still use ribbon, lol

  3. The ribbon is perfect, Melissa! It looks like leather strapping! What a fabulous design. Did you draw the template yourself? Hugs xx

  4. This card looks fantastic, Melissa! My eldest son has been playing baseball for 6 years now. He plays catcher and we've even gone to the U.S. with him to play. I know he would LOVE this for his birthday! Was it from a template?

  5. WOW - where do you come up with these wonderful ideas? Love this!!! I too have a young soft baller in the house and this card would suit him perfectly. Love that you incorporated the ribbon so well.


  6. I too have a baseball son and would love a template if you have one. Thanks so much.

  7. Hi Melissa. I just wanted to let you know that I've posted a card made with this template on my blog with a link back to you. I hope you're feeling a bit better. Take care,

  8. This is so adorable, Melissa! Perfect for a little boy! Or one of my bigger boys too! Thank you for making us aware of the CASE! And thanks for visiting Our Creative Corner!
