Masculine 40th Birthday Card

Happy Thursday! Krafty Chick here sharing a Masculine birthday card. I find it very hard to make masculine cards. The card was for a man who really enjoys his cigars and pipe. When I saw this file in the silhouette store, I knew just what to do. 

Here's what I made:

Here is what I made:

      I was inspired by the rosette Christmas wreath in the Close To My Heart catalog.  I used several cricut cartridges to create my Halloween version.  I must admit, it has been over a year since I played with my cricut.  After purchasing my silhouette, my E2 just sat there and collected dust.  I pondered selling it a few times, but boy am I glad I didn't!  I forgot what fun my cricut is.  I used CTMH paper and I have to tell you it cuts like butter.  I thought the silhouette cut better, but it turns out the right paper is all I needed in the cricut.  I will be using my cricut a lot more and am debating if I want to take the plunge and invest in the explore. 

 Cricut cartridges I used:
Ribbons & Rosettes
Mini Monsters
Holiday Cakes
Martha Stewart Crafts seasonal cake art

CTMH paper I used:
 Scaredy Cat Paper Packet
Paper Fundamentals Enchantment Assortment
