No Bones About It Boy's Birthday Card

No Bones About It Boys Birthday Card

Our grandson, Connor, has a birthday coming up and since he gave me some very specific tips on things to add the next time I made cards, I made sure to incorporate his "tips" when making his birthday card.




Connor's Card Tips

  • Big is Best (His Card measures 7-1/4" x 4-3/4")
  • No plain white envelopes.  It should be colored and it should have a design.  That's a BIG ENVELOPE!  But, envelopes are super simple to make with the Envelope Punch Board, so no problem.

No Bones About It

 This card is BIG & TALL, just the way boys like it.  Yep, it's perfect for a soon to be 7 year old.

No Bones About It Stampin Up Card

 Embossing Resist Technique

I stamped my background using the Stampin' Up! No Bones About It stamp set and Whisper White Craft Ink.  What a super fun and cute Boy's Stamp set!  Then, I embossed the whole thing using White Embossing Powder.  And finally, I sponged over the whole thing using Delightful Dijon Ink.  So Cute!  The Dinosaur Bones are perfect for this technique.

 And what 7 year doesn't like jokes?  The inside should bring a smile too.

 Thanks to Mojo Monday for the Tall and Skinny Card Sketch.  My card is Tall and Skinny, just a little bigger than was suggested.
