Wishing You an Epic Year

Hi All,

Before I move on and start filling blogland with all my gushy, romance-y, heart themed cards, I'm going to share a couple of masculine cards...of the pre-teen variety. The card I have for you today was made for one of my son's best friends. If y
ou have or know any 11-year-old boys, you know they have one thing on the mind....video games. I had bought this stamp set knowing that I'd get plenty of use out of it. I did....I've made @ six cards already. It has paid for itself.

This card was inspired by a Nichole Heady card. I love the simple design and the colors that she used. For boys, that's really all you need: no razzle-dazzle, no glitter, no bling. I did get to use my Stripes Embossing Folder. That kind of fancies it up a bit, right??? I think it adds the perfect bit of dimension. Hope you like it!

Stamps: Boy Basics & Grunge Me
Paper: Tempting Turqouise and Whisper White Cardstock
Ink: Basic Black Classic Pad & Whisper White Craft Pad
Accessories: Stripes Embossing Folder, Corner Rounder, Fancy Scissors and Pop Dots/Dimensionals

Julie, I love these cards! They are perfect for the teen-preteen boys which I always need a card for. I love the layout and the colors you have chosen. Fantastic!
