We all know masculine cards are difficult to make. Teen (and pre-teen) boys are (for me, at least) even harder! So I thought I'd show you a couple of ideas that I used this autumn for some of our nephews.
My first card uses MFT's new set Chill Wishes. Love the fun, punny sentiments and this super-cool penguin with his goggles. I coloured my goggles just like Keeway - so brilliant the way she captured the glare of reflective lenses! I used a Stampin Up Alphabet to personalize this one.
My second card uses SugarPea Designs Every Day is Christmas and Celebrate All the Things as well as an old Stampin Up starburst stamp. I love how the background gives so much energy to this card. The frog is attached with a wobbler, so he really dances!
Finally, the twins. These cards were made and sent just before the penguins arrived but you can see some continuity in my thinking. I used bold black and neon ombre inks to make these stand out. The Happy Birthday is from Essentials By Ellen's Sock Monkey set. The stars are from Winnie & Walter's Big Bang Confetti.
