RRR Anything Goes Challenge: Vintage Style Golf Themed Masculine Birthday Card
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! It’s time for another fabulous Anything Goes Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon. I’m still working my way through family birthdays. I made this golf themed masculine birthday card for my brother in law. He was a golf pro for many years, and even designed the course where he worked as the pro. Now retired, he lives in a golf course community and still loves to play. Hopefully, this card made especially for him will be a hole in one instead of a bogey!
Adding ribbon or trim to a masculine card can sometimes be tricky. I have several ribbons that I always keep on hand because they work so well on masculine cards. This Ivory, Brown and Copper Plaid is one of my favorites. I love the way it looks with these papers from Authentique’s Rugged collection.
Distressing, embossing and inking give this card a great outdoorsy, masculine feel. I even found a golf tee in my stash and used as a hanger for my little sticker banner.
The soft woven texture of this ribbon makes it so easy to tie. To add a little extra texture, I topped it with a natural burlap string bow and a leather button from my stash.
A Peek Inside
You’ll find more references to my brother-in-law’s hobby on the inside of this golf themed masculine birthday card. A small pocket holds a ribbon topped tag and a little sweet treat. The sentiment is stamped on a 3″ x 4″ journal card from the Rugged collection.
