I always feel like birthday cards for boys are little harder than ones for girls. This week I made a birthday card for boys using Happy Monster Party and layering 2 border stamps to create my background. I have to say that this one of my favorite boy birthday cards that I have created!
To create the background, I used the Three Line Border and Stitched Border stamps to create a fun plaid background. The colors for background are Sunflower, Love Letter, Summer Sky, and Freshly Cut Grass dye inks. I chose the colors to coordinate with the monsters. The monsters were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored in with Copic markers. Next, I cut out the frame using the Frame in Frame die set from Taylored Expressions and the monsters using the same die. The die creates both a frame and the panel so I used both the panel piece for the monsters and the frame that it cut out of the white cardstock. I ran the die through again with the red polka dot pattern paper to create the red frame. Next, I adhered the red frame using Tombow Liquid Glue to the white cardstock frame to add a little dimension. To assemble the card, I adhered the plaid panel on my base and then my frame at an angle on top of that. Last, I placed the monsters in the frame with some Tombow Permanent Tape Runner.
I think this card is so cute and fun to give to a boy for his birthday! I hope that you enjoyed my card today!
