Happy B(eard) Day

Made this for a friend's son, but it could go to a man of any age, I think!

On the inside of the card, I wrote Happy Beard Day!  Haha!  I made the card in a pinch and am pretty happy with it.  If  I could change anything, though, I'd take more time on the sentiment/banner.  It could have been done more carefully...


  • Log and beard stamp/die set by Richard Garay for Fun Stanpers Journey inked with Ranger Archival in Jet Black and heat embossed with black Recollections EP on appropriate-colored cardstock
  • Treeline die by Tim Holtz/Sizzix (It's crooked in the picture-- but  I saw that it slipped and fixed it!)
  • The background was stamped using a Heidi Swapp woodgrain stamp in Frayed Burlap DOx on some generic beige cardstock
  • I wrote the sentiment with a Zig Emboss Writer and heat embossed with black Recollections EP
  • Viva Paper Pearls in Anthracite at the top
I'll share this at the following challenge sites:
