Mission: More "Guy" Birthday Cards

I got one whopping card done today -- yeah, I'm underwhelmed. I decided to replace the Dusty Durango Medallion card from a couple posts ago, and instead add this one to the set of "man cards" I'm making.

Actually, this card was pretty easy. I just embossed the Medallion onto Night of Navy using VersaMark and silver embossing powder. As I was admiring the result, I bashed the heat gun nozzle into the edge of the medallion and smeared the silver, so that was my inspiration for cutting the Medallion panel around to a smaller size. I layered it onto Brushed Silver cardstock and a card base of Night of Navy. I tried a million different things in the center of the Medallion, but finally settled on a simple silver brad. The "Birthday Wishes" sentiment is from Garden Greetings, stamped in Night of Navy and shaped with the Modern Label punch. A bit of strategically placed paper piercing, and Voila'!

I love the card. I think the embossing gives just the right pow to the medallion. So far this is my fav.!!
