An Old Fashioned Manly Birthday Card and a Fun Birthday Card with Paper Smooches

A friend of mine will turn 43 on 25 January. Here is the card for him...but sadly I dont know his address..... so I share it here on my Blog ;)   Happy Happy Birthday DH hope you are always success in carreer, family and your life, hope you are more mature and know which one is right and which one is wrong :) its a manner to say Happy Birthday for a friend that I can do :)

How I made my card:

1. I stamped many sentiment (Hero Arts) on the white paper as you can see on the photo above.
2. I then die cutting the TAG and stamped the telephone, after it I took Ranger Die Stress Ink in brown and my woodgrain rubber stamp and stamped on it.
3. I stamped Hero Arts Wood on the white paper with sentiment and sponged the edge with brown Distress Ink to look a bit vintage.
4.The Sentiment is Hero Arts I stamped in black on the brown paper.

Here is one more photo of my card:
