More Masculine Birthday Cards

Hi Dreamers!
I am back today with more masculine birthday inspiration!! I went a bit "western" with the two cards in this post.  The cards are among the cards I made for my brother.  He does not like to buy "store" cards.  Now, I  make all his cards.  He is so spoiled!   But, I love doing it.  It is what I do!!!  LOL  The first card uses an oldie but goodie wolf stamp from PSX.

The wolf is stamped on gray CS with Gray ink.   The frame is die cut with a Sizzix die.  The Card base is made from a sandy grey CS from Bazzill.

To make this embellishment, I tied knots in two strands of twine and one piece of narrow black ribbon.

On the inside, a birthday sentiment from Stampin' Up.  

The second card is made with a Cowboy stamp from  Magenta.  I stamped on blue CS from Stampin' Up with black ink.

I layered with two DP's from Basic Grey.  I wrapped baker's twine and twine around the card and tied in a knot.  Rhinestones were added on the top and bottom.
