Makeover Monday Video Tutorial- Make a Masculine Birthday Card

Masculine-birthday-card-1-8-14This week's Makeover Monday features the Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper for a fun and bright masculine birthday card. 

I'm sure you've you heard the saying "let your fingers do the walking" in reference to the Yellow Pages in a phone directory (or, maybe that was before your time).  Today, I say "let the paper do the talking"!  If you have some bold and vibrant designer series paper, a simple sentiment and embellishments will be a good finishing touch.

Let's take a look at the inspiration for this card in the following video tutorial.
