Papertrey Ink and Tonic Studio Sending Best Wishes masculine 40th birthday card



Hello friends and welcome to the first Simply Create Too challenge of the year.
For this challenge, we'd like to see a monochrome creation for any occasion you choose.


Simply Create Too Challenge Blog

My eldest son had a significant birthday just after Christmas so I came up with this masculine design for him. I can't believe I have a 40-year-old son - how did that happen???




I used a mix of dies for this one. The background was created using my new Tonic Studio Sending Best Wishes set. I die cut the triangles from black card and then embossed them with the embossing folder in the set. They were placed on a textured silver die-cut square, leaving a gap between them for the numbers.




The star and sentiments are from Papertrey Ink and I put them on foam tape to give some dimension.

I do hope you will visit the blog and leave my talented teammates some good cheer to start off the new year. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

I'd like to play along at
