Sending Birthday Wishes

Hey there - today I'm sharing a card I made for my brother-in-law who has a birthday today. Masculine cards can be hard - but I had a particular stamp in mind to use - which of course makes it a whole lot easier. The stamp in question - World Map from Papertrey Ink. As soon as I saw it I said to myself - that stamp is mine. (given that my husband loves a map - any map- I knew the stamp would see a lot of use.)  I also used some Fine Linen patterned paper  and the sentiment (Fillable Frames Sentiments) from Papertrey.  The black chevron pieces and the ticket were cut using my Silhouette Portrait. :-) I had used the Portrait once since receiving it for Christmas and I really wanted to try it again. I gotta say I'm a little in love with that Portrait and have all kinds of projects in mind for it in the coming months.  Anyway, I finished the card off with a star brad I had on hand - and while I was at it, I made two cards. That's all for today - have a good one!

I love maps, too, Tracy, and knew I needed this stamp set! It makes me very happy when I stamp with it!
Great cards... I love the idea of using this set for masculine cards!
