Ever Need A Little Boy Birthday Card?
Do you ever struggle with making birthday cards for little boys? Or feel limited with which accessories to use? I sure do!
My nephew turned 7 last week, and they are coming for a visit this next weekend (YIPPEE!!!) and my stamp set for his card came in on Friday. As I was making this card, I kept adding more and more and more and more, to where it just looked like a hot mess.
I threw it all in the trash yesterday and decided I would try again today.
The entire time that I was making this, I was saying in my head, “Simple, simple, simple.” I all but slapped my own hands as I found myself reaching for brads & other metal pieces. And in the end, it was the simple card that I love! (The only thing I wish I could add to it are googly eyes on the alien, but I can't find them.)
My best tips for you when it comes to making birthday cards for little boys:
Pick your color palette and stick to it!
Simple, Simple, Simple!
That's it – just two tips, and have fun creating it for them, they won't be little boys for long!
