Seeing brown, green, peach and light blue in the coordinating papers made me feel this worked with the For The Man stamp set I have. It came with a Stamping kit and papers for Father's Day but I needed a birthday card and didn't really want to use the papers with cars and computers on it for this guy. The thick fibers felt more manly than ribbon and, now that I am looking at it, I could have put a trio of buttons or brads on it as well
I heavily inked the Happy Birthday stamp and since it was clear, I even re-inked and re-stamped it when I decided to emboss it. Unfortunately I smudged it when it was still a bit wet. I tried to fix it with a brown marker and re-emboss it. You can tell that I should have trashed it and started over, but I didn't have the time because the mail was about to run and I needed it to set so I could get it out on time! I am bad about getting cards done on time and desperately trying to change that! LOL!! Please be kind when making remarks, I feel bad enough about it. On the plus side, the guy that received it called and thanked me today. I am sure his wife, my dear friend Jean, will be expecting her card on time this year!
I hope this helps inspire you to make a card for your Man. If mine had not seen it I would have made another for him as a "just because" card ;)
