Despite the silence on my blog in recent times, I have actually been creating! I hope to have a few more regular posts coming up as I share some of my creations. The card I am sharing today is the birthday card for my youngest nephew, Max. He turns 13 tomorrow (and I feel pretty confident in posting the card as I know he doesn’t read my blog. lol). I decided to make a scene card for him – lots of die-cutting and inking…and it was so much fun. I haven’t made a scene card in the longest time!
Here’s the card…
It’s not a traditional looking birthday card and is rather “dark” but I was trying to avoid going too cutesy and girly. I’m definitely going to have to build up my masculine card stash!
Thanks for stopping by today!
DISCLAIMER: Although a member of the Simon Says Stamp Affiliate program, all items used to create my projects were purchased by myself. I only link to items I have used, like to use and actually recommend. I have included both sizes of distress ink pads as you may prefer the mini over the regular size. I have also linked to the dies which match the stamp set although in this case I decided to fussy cut out the images.
Kylie, how wonderful to know that you’re A-okay and still crafting because, my friend, your abundant creativity *needs* to be expressed! Your come-back card sees me smiling because I know your nephew will absolutely LOVE this! What teen boy wouldn’t want to see a yeti, especially one bearing birthday wishes and sporting both a party hat and balloon! Fabulous!! Happy sighs in seeing this and knowing you’ll be sharing more ‘awe-some’ goodies soon!
Perfect celebratory card for a newly minted teenager. And I’m so glad you’re back posting. I know that that means you’re doing well. It’s not dark…it’s just right for a young man; not too babyish, not too girly, it’s just right. Love the party hat and balloon. You’re pretty darn amazing! xoxo
But his Mum does ?. Pretty sure he’ll love it. Love your work. ?
haha you are sworn to secrecy. 😛 Thanks so much. xx
