Another male birthday card

I seem to have lots of cards to make for men at the moment.  This is for my uncle in America.  I saw a card layout in my Craftworks Cards recipe folder and used the basic design to suit what I had in my craft room.  The letter 'tiles' were simply stamped with a Versamark pad (alphabet stamps from my hugely versatile 3Birds collection) and double-embossed with a white embossing powder.  These were mounted onto paper from the much-used WeRMemoryKeepers pad that came free with a magazine (Simply Cards & Papercraft) earlier in the year.  The base card is kraft - my favourite!  A simple card - and the colours/backing paper could be changed to suit any recipient.
