Masculine Birthday Card using Christmas Cheer Cricut Cart

Hello!  This is another card that I made for the card party I am hosting in a few weeks.  I want a good variety so I wanted to include a masculine birthday card.  I am pretty happy with the way this one turned out.

I used a dark gray cardstock for the base - it's an A2 sized card, which is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  Then I took a piece of black cardstock 5 1/4" x 4" and embossed it with my Cuttlebug using the diamond plate embossing folder, then I inked it with silver ink to make the embossing pop.  The circle with the star in the middle is from Christmas Cheer cut at 3 1/4" and the silver circle behind it is 3 1/2".  The black star is just the center from the circle inked with silver ink.  The little silver star is a brad - I didn't have a silver brad so I embossed a gold one.  The sentiment is also embossed with silver embossing powder and the stamp I used is from Stampin' Up.

This card was entered in the Anything Goes Birthday Card Challenge at Birthday Sundaes:
