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