Boy Birthday


I have been spoiled by 2 granddaughters and used to making "girly" cards and frilly stuff.  Now that I have a grandson, I need to get in the groove to make "boy" cards and non-frilly stuff.   I have had this darling image by Bugaboo sitting on my workspace colored and waiting to be made into a card.  Yesterday was the day and I tried to keep within the "boy" guidelines...no frilly anything or big fluffy bows.  I think, it all worked out just fine.  Since, I always struggle with birthday cards for boys, this will fit the bill, perfectly.  I used some star paper from the All About Boys stack by DCWV and the Numbers embossing folder by Provo Craft.  The sentiment is a stamp by Heide Grace, punched with the Ticket Corner punch by SU!  A  red star and a blue brad finish off this "boyish" card.

I know just what you mean about creating girly cards. They are my favorite style of cards, but when I have to create a card for my son, I always have to stop, think, and rack my brain a bit. Your card turned out absolutely amazing! I love the blue and red combination, the stars, your coloring...ok, just everything!

Thanks for sharing your adorable creation with us this week at Papercraft Star! I hope to see more of your creations with us soon!
