Masculine Happy Birthday

I just created this card for my Nephew's birthday. The top pulls up to reveal the personal note. I embossed it with my Sizzix and then chalked it with  silver ink so the swirls would stand out. The edges are black sparkling tape to help camouflage the blue strips which are hot glued down to hold the black netting. The silver button was once again from my Dad's collection of stuff and I just put silver Stickles around it to cover the hot glue.

This template for the criscross card design was created by my friend Adrienne. it can be adapted for so many feminine cards with alot more frills on the top and sides.
Thanks for stopping by.
