Good morning crafty friends

It's one of my brother's birthday on the 26th of this month and I needed to make a card for him.  He will also be celebrating his ruby anniversary on the same day.  Unfortunately brother and sister in law have had to cancel their plans to a later date for their anniversary celebration

I made a 5"x7" black card base, then cut to size a piece of white cardstock and embossed it

I made the bow tie and added black gems for buttons and heat embossed the sentiment 

You can see the embossing detail much better on the photo below 

I stamped one verse on the inside and will add a personal one/message onto the right side card

  • embossing folder - Creative Expressions
  • classic 3D bow - CE CED1405
  • sentiment - Woodware FRS733
  • VersaMark - clear stamp pad
  • VersaFine CLAIR - Fallen Leaves
  • white embossing powder - Hero Arts
Thank you for visiting today, please stay safe!



  1. Great idea June. I especially like the embossing. The sentiment on its side works well too.

  2. Wow, this is superb! I love the cleverness of your card!

  3. Hi June this is a stunning card that you have made for your brother. I hope that he has a lovely birthday and anniversary in-spite of the circumstances. It will be lovely when you can celebrate properly. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  4. Wow this is a great idea for a man's special card and even though it looks fantastic, it doesn't appear to be that hard to do

  5. Lovely idea June - so appropriate!

  6. This is stunning!! So nice for a man!

  7. A super masculine card, June. I hope your brother and his wife will still be able to enjoy their special day. xx

  8. A super card June, such a fabulous masculine design - it's such a shame so many people are having to cancel their celebrations, they will still be able to enjoy their Anniversary together though.

  9. I'm sure he will love his card, excellent design, love the insert too. Isn't it a shame so many celebrations are being put off, but, think of the celebrations when this is all over.
    Keep safe and well
