It is always difficult to find great papers for masculine cards. Graphic 45 recently released the 'good sport' range. I loved it immediately. For this card I used the 12'' size paper (which we sell at the shows). We have the 8'' paper pad in stock - the scale is smaller.
I've stamped the 'happy birthday' using the Darkroom Door simple sayings stamp and red archival ink. The star is punched out of red spot washi tape.
