Masculine Birthday Cards

Hello everyone!  I am back to share more cards with you that I created using the 4.5"x6.5" paper stack I bought from Hobby Lobby called Glasses, Staches & Ties.  These are part of the 41 that I made.  I used a total of 40 sheets of the paper and it came in a stack of 120, so there is still a lot left!
 This is a close-up of the embossing on the background.  It is kind of a splash design.  I colored parts of the sentiment in with ultra fine sharpie markers.
 This is the second version of the same card, different paper.  This one has a fishing theme.
 I used a hexagon embossing folder on the background of these cards.
 This one does not have any embossing, but I did pop up the sentiment panel.  The sentiment stamp is from My Craft Spot's Chalkboard Sentiment stamp set.  I made another card using that set if you want to see it HERE.
Here is a look at ALL 41 cards!  I kept them pretty simple since they shouldn't be overly embellished for OWH.  I really enjoyed challenging myself to make all of these!  I have posted individually on a couple of these designs so far.  If you want to see those posts click HERE.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
