I hope that you're feeling inspired to get out your stash of papercrafting supplies and kick off the New Year with new projects galore!
I was excited to see Lauren's card because it's a BOY card! I love seeing great boyish cards because, for me, they're challenging. My usual tricks of adding bling, ribbons and cute stuff to the card just doesnt' quite work for a boy/guy card. Let's see what Lauren created.
12 x 12 cream colored card stock
Vintage-T Argyle sweater designer paper by We R Memory Keepers
Legit Griffindor tag
Happy birthday stamp
Maroon, creamy brown and navy blue chalk ink
White pigment ink pen
I think We R memory keepers Vintage-T line is great for that preteen to early teenage boy. Using their products, I created a gift card holder and birthday card to give to that growing boy. I wanted to do something nontraditional so I scored a 12 x 5.5 sheet of card stock so that there are two flaps to open and used a strip of paper and ribbon to keep the card closed.
This is a great boy-ish card with just enough to keep it interesting without making it overdone or girlish!
We'll see you all back here on Monday with another Layout idea!
