Extreme Expresso Birthday

 I had another 40th Birthday card to make this week for a male friend.

Has everyone seen the Extreme Elements stamp set? I really like it for male cards and you can use it for all age groups. I have also teamed it up with the Grunge Rock stamp set as well. Grunge Rock is only available during the current Summer Mini promotion until 31st March.

The background paper is Very Vanilla and I have stamped with various stamps from both sets in Cake Crumb, River Rock and Marina Mist ink. I have cut out the Guitar image and highlighted it even further by using dimensionals. You can still gets the brads, but I am afraid the ribbon and Star Brad have retired (just utilizing the last of my stock). You could certainly use a matching Early Expresso Ribbon and then substitute the star for an Antique Brad, a Jumbo Brad or even a different Star Brad out of the Hodgepodge Hardware kit.

I suppose you could even highlight it was a 40th card by adding “40” from the big shot dies, or if it was a younger male even adding some Chocolate or Aqua glitter on the guitar. I thought about both of these ideas, but ran out of time in my preparation. Hope you like it.
