Male Birthday Card

This card was made for a family member who recently celebrated his 80th birthday.  I always find male cards difficult as most of my stash consists of 'girly' items but this turned out well enough (I hope) and I do like the buttons tied with raffia so will use this idea again.  The inside consisted of a one page insert plus a double page photo-montage which my DH put together using his family history programme.  All edges have been cut using the deckle blade in my trimmer.

Cream pre-scored card blank & Metallic card from stash
DP - K&Company
Buttons & Raffia - Papermania
Sentiment - Papermania Clear Stamp

Tools used:
Cuttlebug Olivia Alphabet for the numbers
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Bird Call
Woodware Fingerguard Trimmer - Deckle edge blade

Thanks for looking.
