Simple Boy Birthday Cards

It is time for another designer challenge at My Creative Time. Cindy is hosting our challenge and it is a BIRTHDAY challenge. So just make any birthday themed project and link it up on Emma's blog.

I made a set of 4 simple boy birthday cards. I have a terrific DCWV boy themed mat stack that has some terrific little scenes. I just added a couple of dies or stamps to each one and matted them to a card base and I was done. Super simple.

Here is a picture of each card close up and with the stamps and dies I used for it.

For this card I used a couple of strips of Washi Tape along with My Creative Time's Chocolate Greetings stamp set and the banner die that comes with the Chocolate Greetings Stamp set for the white layer. The black banner layer makes a perfect mat. It is the banner from the Vintage Stitched Label Die . I saw my fellow DT team member Cheryl use this idea before and knew I would love using it this way. Here is a set of cards she made layering these dies HERE

This one uses the Circle Font stamp set along with a bunch of hand doodled bubbles.

For this card I used the Stitched Square Speech Bubble dies, the Chocolate Greetings stamp set and the It's All About You stamp set.

And last of all is the Fun Ticket stamp set and the Stitched Fun Ticket Die set.

Make sure you hop on over to Emma's blog to see what fun projects everyone made for this challenge. I hope you will join in the fun too! Hugs- Glora
