All About the Boys!

This week I really decided to concentrate on cards suitable for the guys. Big boys, little boys, but especially BIRTHDAY BOYS!

I really love that Close to My Heart’s Party Time paper in the Core Catalog is double sided with one side being predominately pinks and the opposite side being predominately blues. I have made so many cards with this paper.

Other than Father’s Day & Mother’s Day stamp sets I don’t assign a gender to my stamps (sure I have a few that I’d use more for guys, but I do have girlfriends that hunt and enjoy the outdoors).

For my cards this week, I started by just pulling a few birthday stamp sets and the Party Time paper and making a pile on my desk. I pulled out some paper and really got a feel for what I wanted to do.

Starting with the Make It From Your Heart Vol 4 I started making cards! I would just pick a pattern, pull a stamp set and ask myself how is this going to work?

All the colors I chose to use (except the toffee on the donuts) I chose from the papers. I also kept my embellishments simple, choosing the Black & White Dots or Silver Glitter Gems.

I think instead of BOY cards, I ended up with some that are quite gender neutral.

I hope you’ve enjoyed a look at my process and I appreciate you taking the time to stop by.
