Birthday Card for a Boy!

For some reason making cards with more of a girl theme comes easy, but when it comes to a boy I really had to get my thinking cap on.  Here is an idea that I created for an upcoming birthday boy!

The Card:

                                                                                                                                                                                                          (Click on Image to Enlarge)                               

Card: I found the pre-made plain white card in the $ bin at Michael’s.  They came in packs of six with envelopes.

Paper:  I used a piece of textured paper scrap for the solid color on the card and used additional scrap for the outfit, hair, club, and dinosaur.  For the striped piece of paper, I used Die Cuts with a View, Summer Stacker.  You can find that at Joanne’s. For the glitter #4, I used Die Cuts with a View Glitter Stacker.

Ribbon: I used some ribbon I got through the ABC catalogue about 4 years ago.

Cricut Cartridges: Paper Dolls (Cave Boy setting) and Sweet Treats (for the # 4). 

Stamps:  For the face of the cave boy’s face,  I used Peachy Keen stamps (Big Eyes).  For the “Birthday Fun”, I used  The Pink Stamper, Simply Sweet Occasions.

For ink, I used Stampin’ Up Classic Black.

* I used the My Pink Stamper Faux Chipboard concept (which I love) for the # 4!

* For the 3-D look, I used dimensional under the cave boy and the dino.
