Blue Jeans for your Birthday

Happy New Year folks!  It's Beth Norman here with a masculine card for you, using the newly released Blue Jean's stamp.  If you look closely you will see a Cheers! stamp along the seam.  The Cheers! comes from Simple Sentiments 2a set.  Above that, I added a shiny gold brad.

I couldn't resist adding a Happy Birthday leather patch to the jeans, so I pulled out a piece of brown cardstock that looked like leather in colour and then stamped out Happy Birthday in black VersaFine.  The Happy Birthday comes from the Holidays 2 Flourish Sentiments.

I distressed the cardstock in brown ink and then used the Faux Stitching technique from the April 2006 Technique Junkie Newsletter.  The edges of the patch were rounded with my corner rounder.  Finally, I added brown brads to each corner of the patch.

Hopefully you are inspired to use this stamp too.  It makes for a quick masculine card.

Remember, all January released stamps are 15% off until January 8th.
