Quick Birthday Card

Having two sons in the "Young Adult" age group provides me with an ongoing challenge to make cards that will not embarass the bajeebers out of them in case their roommates might see them. So for my youngest's 20th birthday I made this card today:

Recipe: Stamps - All Year Cheer 2; Paper - Soft Sky, Old Olive, Kraft (or maybe the old Confetti Tan), Whisper White, Fall Flowers DS paper; Ink - Old Olive Craft; Other - Oval eyelets, Clear EP, Rub-ons, Olive gg ribbon.

The layout for this card was totally inspired by last week's Mojo Monday sketch. The colors were taken from the piece of Fall Flowers DS paper I had laying around. See what happens when I do not clean up? Inspiration!!!!!

The dots and the message on the ribbon are some of the new SU rub-ons. Some of the dots did not stick, but it still works, I think. The stars are also SU rub-ons - three of them, in fact! I stuck them on some Soft Sky scraps, then cut them out and layered them. The whole thing really came together very quickly.

For my next trick, I plan to show you some of the Road Trip inspiration I collected this past weekend and the resulting cards. They are still works-in-progress, so hopefully later this week I will be able to share.

  1. ok... I thought you were in your early 30's ;) Guess I was off a bit.

    I think this is a great card for a young man. Masculine but not all brown and boring.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
