SR338 and JAI320 Birthday


Happy Saturday, peeps!  Hope you have something fun planned!  I've got a masculine birthday card to share with you; it's for my nephew, and it uses the colors from Stampin' Royalty and the sketch from Just Add Ink:
JAI #320

I never quite know in which direction to go when created a card for a young man!  This is a mix of eclectic vintage images with some silver accents thrown in:


My base was stamped with a Simon Says Stamp grid background, and added a lot of elements from Timeless Textures randomly along the edges.  A scripty image (Artistic Outpost's The Outpost) was stamped horizontally as well.  I stamped the watch image (also Artistic Outpost's The Outpost) in Night of Navy and fussy-cut it out and mounted it on a circle of Mint Macaron.  I added a banner and a sentiment from last month's Paper Pumpkin and popped everything up with some dimensionals.  I just couldn't figure out what to use for the embellishment, and in the end, to follow through with the tree image, diecut some silver leaves with the Flourishes die.  I added some Silver Encore speckles on the card base as well!


Thanks for popping in today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

A week of Vacation Bible School just wore her out!

This is an awesome masculine card, LeAnne! Love the colors you used and the neat stop watch image! This is definitely a great card for a young man with all that texture on the cardbase and those 2 little silver foiled leaves! Your nephew is going to love it! TFS and have a great day! :)

Fab card LeeAnn! It's perfect for a guy, the grunge elements from Timeless Textures are such a great effect. Thanks for sharing at Just Add Ink.

This is wonderful! I love the Timeless Textures + extras background, the little pops of mint and that image of the watch and house (hometime) is adorable.
