A passion for Papertrey: for the boys

This week I have been working on a customer order, its been so fun because there were a variety of requests in there ... 10 female birthday cards, get well soon, my favourite sympathy cards, and lastly, 5 cards suitable for men.  I tend to make blokes birthday cards which end up being particularly uni-sex. And this week has been no different.

A passion for Papertrey this week have been running their challenge,  a birthday card for the boys.  So I have this to share with you today ...

... You know me and my batches ... I ended up making four of these little cards.

They are bright with detail, yet still simple.  And uni-sex!!  Not every girl likes fluffy things and flowers!  Each card has just three colours, a simple sentiment, and a lovely big star.

Did you spot the Papertrey stamp ....  ?? .....

I used it along the bottom to balance out the star ......

Its the little star stamp from the fly away  set that I won from the A passion for Papertrey blog this month, thanks lovely ladies ... I love my new set!

  1. Hee hee, I did notice that little hint of PTI there - may be small but it still counts!!

    Thanks for joining us again Shelley.


  2. Fab design, Shelly! I love that this could be used for both the girls and the guys (I myself am not a girly girl y'know!)
    Glad the prize from our past challenge made it to you! Thanks so much for joining in our challenges!
