Masculine Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

Today I'd like to share a card that I made for my Brother for his birthday.  This card was inspired by Laura Denison at Following the Paper Trail.  She does the most amazing work.  Laura made a masculine mini album, each page being a different type of Mens clothing.  One was a suit, one was a plaid shirt, one was a golf sweater, etc.  I decided to make the suit page, but with a twist.  I made it into a card and changed it up slightly.  Laura's is a pocket page and the shirt collar is a pull out tag.  Her tie is attached to the front inside of the page.  In my version, I kept the pocket, however I didn't adhere the tie to the inside front.  I plan on putting my birthday sentiment there.  I attached the tie under the collar so when you pull out the collar the tie is connected.  On the back of the tag I've attached a gift card so the pocket worked out great.

This was so much fun to make.  I hope he likes it.  Thanks to Laura for the inspiration.  I'd love to hear what you think.  Leave me a comment and let me hear your views.
