Once again, my Studio Calico kit is inspiring me to create boy cards!
It was my twin nephew's birthday last Sunday and they turned 11. I was so challenged by making an age appropriate card for them! I already struggle with masculine cards, and with the tween/pre-teen element added, I was stumped!
But, as it always does, different elements came together and made for a pretty cool card.
The paper in the background was in my June SC kit, I just used an orange Prismacolor pencil to bring some orange to a few of the circles. The scooter stamp actually had a heart on the rear, but I just didn't ink that portion.
On the little card in the pocket, I stamped it, inked it and then felt like it needed a little oomph. So, I took pencils, pens, anything round, dipped them into Jenny Bowlin's Stick Candy and added some random circles!
I added a couple of brads and glossy accents to bring the moped to life. I colored it with Prismacolors and mineral spirits.
I am loving that Library Card PTI die. So versatile. I added the Birthday definition stamp from Hero Arts to tie in the words on the background paper.
