Boy Birthday Card

I find I struggle with boy birthday cards, now that Zachary is getting older.  The dump trucks just don't cut it anymore!  I can whip up a girly sparkly card in minutes for Julie-Anna who is almost 11, and Sophia who is almost 7, NO PROBLEM... It's almost like 'stump the chump' when it comes to the boys!  Sadly, the skateboard stamp retired in June... doesn't mean I won't use it, but it became my go to stamp for the boys of all ages :)

However, if you use just the right colours, you can do a lot with Create A Cupcake and the co-ordinating punch, even for boys :)

Cardstock: Old Olive, Real Red,Whisper White, Pacific Point
Designer Paper:  Celebrations Scrappin' Kit/DSP pack (retired)
Stamps: Create A Cupcake
Ink:  Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red
Accessories:  Stampin' Dimensionals

See, a fun boyish birthday card :)  Bling it up and/or change the colour scheme, and it's fantastic for a girl!! :)

Just a reminder about next weeks FABULOUS FUN FOLDS CLASS!

Have a happy day!
See ya!
