Old Guy Cards

So these are some of the most fun cards I've made!! My husband loves this clothing company called Old Guys Rule. They make hats, t-shirts, and stickers along with some other novelty items. So, you can imagine my excitement when I saw that they had come out with a scrapbooking line of papers and stickers.
I took the stickers and adhered them to some light cardboard. This way, they were like chipboard pieces. Then I started making some cards.
I think this long card is my favorite! It is home to the company's main logo. It says "Old Guys Rule Aged to Perfection". I added various circles on the blue paper (just like the card above) and also added some masculine feeling stripes to the gray paper.
The last card used the designer paper and one of the sticker "chipboard" pieces I created. I did a little altering of the sticker to read properly for the birthday card. A bit of doodling, sponging, and some string and, voila, a great masculine birthday card!!
So, what do you think?? Is there a guy in your life that might appreciate recieving one of these cards?? I sent one to my older brother...he didn't think it was too funny!! Hahahaha!! I love it!!
