Masculine Birthday Card in a Box

Every time I see a Card in a Box, I admire and I think I must try that; well today I did, here is my first card in a box:

I have used the colour theme from Stamp Ink Papers current challenge as my colour base for my Masculine Card in a Box

I always struggle with ideas for stamping with Masculine cards, and I must admit I was stuck for some time then it was Gorgeous Grunge to the rescue and then inspiration flowed, I just couldn't stop myself, this is definitely not a "less is more" project!

I triple, yes triple you did read right, heat embossed the Birthday years - this gave them a super smooth finish.  The Number of Years bundle is fantastic, stamps and framelits so you can accommodate any year. I went a bit crazy with cutting stars and punching balloons,but it was so much fun seeing the project take shape as I layered it up.

The is a larger panel on the back for you to write your special birthday message.

I hope you have enjoyed my Card in a Box, below are the products used:
