Happy 40th Birthday Card

This card was a challenge for me. Making guys cards look nice without looking too feminine. I usually like to add flowers, buttons, brads and ribbons.
To make the card I cut out 40 using a Cricut in silver card stock. I cut white card stock using SU! Framelits Labels then ran it through the embossing folder. See detail below.

Also, I just fell in love with this new border punch. It's by ek success brands. It's a 2 in 1 punch. It can be a border or it can be an edge depending on what setting it's on. Not too girly, right? I think the black, white and gray looks a little grim for a birthday card, but I figure he's turning 40 so I kind of wanted to emphasize that he's over the hill. Hahaha.
