Masculine Compass Birthday Card

I needed a masculine birthday card that holds a gift card inside.  I decided to go with the new sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Keeping it very simple I picked some masculine papers from HOTP Boys to Men Paper Pad, pairing both of those pattern papers with some tan and blue card stock.
I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the plaid paper and backed it with a blue shadow layer.
I cut an oval for the sentiment stamp from tan and backed in blue, cut with a stitched scallop oval die.
I cut a circle from the second pattern paper and backed it with that hand stitched circle I cut with a die.  Both of the compass and happy birthday sentiments were stamped in black and then heat embossed with clear acrylic embossing powder.  Both of these stamps are from HOTP For the Guys
On the inside I cut some more of the pattern papers using a stitched Triangle die set  I also made a triangle pocket for those patterned papers to cover.  I used another rectangle die set, this time with a pierced edge rectangle die for the sentiment block. Both of these stamps are from HOTP Celebration Cardmaker stamp set.  The first stamped in black and the second stamped in blue Ink.
I placed a white scrap paper inside the pocket where the gift card will go when I get it.
