Birthday Boy

Once again, I was on the hunt for a masculine image for a birthday card.  I found this image at Sheri Baldy Besties Shop on Etsy.  Birthday Boy Bestie is so cute.  The image actually has a dog sitting next to him, but since the I was mailing this to my nephew who has a cat, I trimmed the image around the dog.

I love those big eyes!  I colored him using my Copic markers.  I have listed the colors at the bottom of my post.  I was really happy with the way he turned out.

After trimming him out, I pulled several papers from my stash.  I cut out the rectangles using My Favorite Things Large Stitched Rectangles and then distressed the edges of the papers.  After laying the background papers, I attached my image.

I stamped the “Happy Birthday” from the Simon Says Stamp Brush Strokes Messages stamp set with some green ink and used clear embossing powder over the ink.  I mounted the sentiment using some foam dots.  And of course, I added some Nuvo Drops in Bottle Green, English Mustard, and Midnight Blue to finish my card.  I was really happy with how this card turned out.

  1. This is such a cute Boy card! I agree about how hard it is to find boy themes in the craft industry. I have even been told that they don’t sell by a manufacturer. I have to laugh because clearly, they do not put the research into it!
