For a Classic Brother

Hi, everyone! Hope the week is off to a good start.

I'm here today with a Mojo-inspired birthday card for a wonderful brother.  :)

For my card, I rotated the sketch. Since this is a guy card, I de-emphasized the bow part... going with a little linen thread and a more subtle bow on a layered strip of dp and cardstock.  And, since this is a card for my brother, I used some of my beloved stash of Bo Bunny timepiece paper.  :)

Stampin' Up! black cardstock; Bo Bunny timepiece dp
SU guy greetings image, stamped in SU tip top taupe and Distress Ink black soot
inking in DI antique linen, scattered straw, and vintage photo, applied with a Ranger blending tool
SU linen thread;  adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zots glue dot

Sorry about the pic quality. Didn't notice that until uploading it here on the blog. However, thanks to my wonderful MISTI, the image is far crisper than it looks here.  LOL

Have a great night. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!


  1. Brothers deserve the good paper, don't they! This is a great masculine card and you nailed the sketch. Have a good day :)

  2. What an awesome masculine card Sybrina!

  3. This is a super design for a guy, Sybrina! Your brother will love it and I'm pinning it!! Hugs, Darnell
