A Few More Boy's Cards

It's always difficult to come up with a boy's cards.  Personally, I like making pretty cards with butterflies and flowers (you know, all things girly), so when I've got to design a card for boys I stumble a little.  Anyway I came up with these which I'm quite pleased with.  Thank goodness for my star punches and the Sweet Treat Cups.

These two cards use the large star punch.  Select your coloured card stock and punch out your star.  Add a piece of designer series paper behind the punched out star and adhere to more card stock.  Stamp your birthday message.  Pretty simple.

A friend asked me to make a card for a 10 year old boy, so for this card I've used a Sweet Treat Cup (again) and used it to make up the number 10.  I placed two sour bombs inside the cup (which should please a 10 year old).  I also wrapped some twine across the card to make it look a little bit more grown up.  I was quite pleased with the final card.

Hope you're having a nice weekend.  I've made my parent's 40th Wedding Anniversary card today but won't post it here until the day of their anniversary (just in case they peek).  I can't wait to show you - I'm really happy with it (a bit different to my usual cards).
