Happy 7th Birthday, J.D.
Do you struggle as much as I do with cards for guys? Girly cards are so much easier. My son's nephew, J.D. is a sports lover so most of my cards for him have been sports themed. I was in a crunch for time with numerous October birthdays looming so needed a quick and easy card.
The base layer for this easy card is SU Confetti Cream. That gorgeous textured DP is from
Crate Paper -The Zoom Collection...perfect for little boys. The best part is that it's double-sided so no guesswork in trying to match colors.
If I had more time, I would have added stitching to it. This is simply layered using the front and back of the paper. I distressed the edges of the center strip and the image piece. I just love those great big eyelets from Stampin Up. The number 7 is popped up on dimensionals. I stamped the wording with my JustRight Stamper Rectangular stamper. I love it!! You can set whole phrases at once. How cool is that?!
I also heat embossed the wording and the 7 with clear embossing powder to give it some dimension. You can see it better if you click on the photo for a close up.
Quick and easy.
Blessings and Happy Stamping!
