Yippee Hooray…a boys birthday card

A fun little card to celebrate a special guys 5th birthday.

The three boys on the card represents my three grandsons.

This week the Xyron Design Team has teamed up with Waffle Flower Stamps & Dies

for some fun projects.  Waffle Flower sent me this cute stamp set called “yippee”.

It’s a perfect stamp set to use for kids cards.

Here’s what I used on my card:                                   (*affiliate link)

  • I stamped a birthday celebration scene using the three boys to represent my three grandsons on white watercolor paper.
  • I colored the stamped image in using my art markers.

There are so many cute kids and components with this stamp set.

  • I used a silver paint marker to edge around the stamped image to make it stand out more.
  • The card and layers were quickly put together using my xyron tape runner.
  • Wrap a couple strands of green and blue twine around the card front and tie with a bow.

A simple little card perfect for celebrating all your special days.

How to make a Relaxing Guy Card

I’ve always found making cards for a guy  to be tricky. 

Making feminine cards come easy to me.

For the upcoming summer season, I decided to make a “guy” card

that would make a perfect birthday, Father’s Day and even  Retirement.

To make the Relaxing Guy Card…

TIP:  Before removing the back off the 3D foam mounting squares.  Brush baby powder to the back of the stickers to remove the tackiness.  The stickers become like die cuts and will only stick where you want them too.

 

Materials Used:                                                                   (*affiliate link)

 
Directions:
  1. Cut a 4″ x 6″ piece of green scrapbook (dock on the lake) layer.  Add border sticker strip onto the top and bottom of the layer leaving approx. 1/8″ border.
  2. Adhere the green layer onto a 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ piece of brown scrapbook paper (day at the lake) and then onto a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece of red (lake time) scrapbook paper.
  3. Create a 5″ x 7″ side fold card from the kraft cardstock.
  4. Adhere scrapbook layers onto kraft card.

5.  Create dimensional stickers by adding and layers stickers with 3D foam mounting squares.  Add stickers to the front of the card.

6.  Wrap twine around the left side of the card and tie with a knot.
