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.

Samuel taylors: die cuts--the wolf card
Truly madly crafty: animals
Cheerful stamp pad: give me five (a hand)---the cowboy
