A Boy’s Birthday!

I really struggle with boys cards but given that the kids get invited to plenty of parties including lots for boys, I really need to stretch my skills as I hate buying cards. Why spend money on store bought cards that could be spent on new craft supplies!

I had an idea as soon as I saw the the latest sketch at Cas(e) This Sketch #232 to use one of my Papertrey Ink split sentiment stamps. I basically lined the stamp up with my Misti and stamped the same image twice to create a similar strip to what is on the sketch.


I then added a strip of patterned paper and used my Copic Markers to add some colour to the lines.

So now I finally have at least one masculine card in my collection! Thanks for stopping to visit today! Em x
