Boys Birthday Cards

Hi everyone, Laurel here.

I teach grade one and one of the special things I like to do is create a hand made birthday card for my students.  Well the other day I realized I needed to build up my stash again so I created a couple of boy themed cards.

First I gathered my supplies and was quite happy to be able to create a couple of cards using mostly scraps!


I decided wanted to highlight the age for my students at this time of year and they will be turning 7 so I cut a large 7 from some of the pattern paper and mounted it with the 3D Foam Squares – and easy way to add some dimension to the project.

Once again, I highlighted the age and this time I adhered my pieces using the E-Z Dots Repositionable dots – although I like my projects to look like my layers just haphazardly were placed, I like to move them around until I am happy with them.  I generally add some stitching to my projects as I like the added interest of the stitching.
