One of my dear sons had a birthday a couple of weeks ago and I am woefully late in getting the thank you cards done for him. I turned to the Trendy Trees set because those trees are just perfect for a boy card!! I am still trying my best to use up my retiring colors and DSP’s so I wanted to use the Sweet Pea DSP (Occasions Mini). I found a great sketch over at the TechnoStamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge. Take a look at this one…love it!
I change it into a square to better fit the thank you card plan (less space to fill on the inside). I was also thrilled to see that the challenge over at Stampin’ Royalty this week is “Masculine Themed” cards. I felt like Taken with Teal (retiring) really has a boy look to it…hopefully that is masculine enough! The Sahara Sand cloud paper is part of the Sweet Pea DSP Pack. I simply used the part of the paper that didn’t include the birds. The Chocolate Chip poly-twill ribbon (ret) finishd the job. I am really trying to use up my Chocolate Chip ribbon and, trust me, that is a lot of ribbon!!! How else can I justify buying some of the lovely new ribbons from the upcoming catalog??!! Here is my card (and its friends).
I just cut out some Sahara Sand squares for the inside that my son will write on. I really like how the clouds add interest to the card without taking away from that cute tree!
Thanks for taking a look. Hope your day is fantastic!
