Today's birthday card post evokes an era long past.
The printed paper is of unknown origin layered on a brown also of unknown origin and Stampin' Up Bravo Burgundy. The sentiment is cut with Crafters Companion Die'Sire Happy Birthday die from a gold of unknown origin. The sentiment is layered on Stampin' Up Bravo Burgundy and more gold. The banners are also punched from a gold of unknown origin. The embellishments are of unknown origin.
I love this vintage style paper. The books really make me think of a library is an old mansion. I used the gold, brown and burgundy not only because they worked perfectly with the paper but also because it helped reinforce that old world feeling I was getting from the books. This is a masculine card - smoking jackets, cognac, pipes, and all that you'd get from an old movie. Who knew you could get all that from a simple birthday card.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
