The Going Somewhere set of cards is a fabulous range for young boys. The vehicles have been stamped in different primary colours and framed in matching coloured cardstock. The background cardstock has been embossed using the Square Lattice Textured Embossing folder through the Cuttlebug. The Birthday Wishes greeting from the Sincere Salutations stamp set completes the card. This set of cards also includes the yellow background, but was given to my nephew before being photographed.
I'm loving the Extreme Snowboard, Skateboard, Guitar, Surfboard and Dirt Bike Stampin' Up stamp sets. Such great stamps for teenager boys, but really could be used for younger or older boys. The silhouette stamped image is certainly the focal point of the card design and I've tried to tone down the patterned papers and colours used on the cards.
Don't you just love to receive a card in the mail? Most of the times, it's for birthdays and Christmas, but I know people who send cards just to say hello or to let you know that you are being thought of. This set of cards has been made as a Christmas gift for one such lady. The patterned papers are from the docrafts Papermania Birdsong 6x6 Paper Pack and the colours are just beautiful. I have added a non birthday greeting to some of the cards and a thin strip of ribbon to separate the two different patterned papers used on the card design.
I came across this fantastic patterned paper of a tree with birds in the docrafts Papermania Birdsong 6x6 paper pack. The tree with birds patterned paper was mounted on co-ordinating card stock and finished with a greeting and a row of 3 bling. Loved the simplicity and overall design of this card.
The Birthday Boy set of cards have been made from a 6x6 pad of patterned papers perfectly suited to young birthday boys. The cards have been stamped with a mixture of greetings, trains, monsters, stars and animals, to co-ordinate with the patterned paper. The design of the card set has been kept fairly simple and the colours kept in regal tones.
