cardmaking

Boys birthday card

Hello! I always find masculine cards really tricky to make but this one is simple and pretty easy to create.

Products used:

Papermill direct slate grey card stock

Navy plain card

White card super smooth card stock (my favourite)

Stick it 3D foam tape

Anita’s PVA glue

I have a full tutorial on the Papermilldirect blog I would love for you to have a read.

I used a star background stamp which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder, this is great for adding some shine and texture. I then used this sweet bus stamp and coloured the image in with my copic markers. The last step was to stick my stamped greeting and the card is complete.

Do you find men’s/ boys card difficult to make? Sometimes I get stuck working on them and they end up in such a mess they go in the bin! Ha! This card is simple to make so hopefully your card will turn out fine. Plus it helps having some more masculine card stock colours in your stash, this really helped me to make the card. It would look more feminine on a white card base so lots of dark colours is always helpful.

If you re make this card please let me know I would love to see your creation!

Thank you for stopping by, have a lovely evening!
