CAS Masculine Birthday

Welcome

This card was made for one of three birthdays I have on one day in December!! 
It was made for a man who can only be described as a minimalist - he hates clutter and anything "fancy shamancy"!!


The kraft card was embossed with a shadow diamond folder after gold (heat) embossing the simple sentiment


The kraft panel was cut on an angle, and then I die cut and adhered some gears in a blue/green card to the orange base, tucking them under the panel as needed. 

I tucked a gift card into the card and voila, one birthday done and dusted!!
