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!
