Belated Birthday Balloon

It was my Dad’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and I had been well prepared with his card completed many days in advance.  However I hadn’t written in it or addressed the envelope, and then my little eye accident happened and I couldn’t see to write!!  So my best intentions went out the window and his card only got to him yesterday!

Masculine_birthday_stampinup_magpiecreatesAfter struggling with them for a few years, I seem to have hit my stride for masculine cards – this one came together rather easily.  One of my favourite new products are the Candy Dots – these are available in all of our core Colour Collections and are super cheap!  They are adhesive backed so really easy to pop straight on any project, or you can team them up with the brad bases for a more solid look, as I did on this card!
