For the Boys

I don't make masculine cards often.  I should, considering I live in a house full of boys!  Maybe I escape the masculinity by making more feminine cards? 

This weeks CAS-ual Fridays Challenge inspired me to do something for the boys...

This card was a lot of fun to make.  I love that I was able to customize my own pattern using the Country Charm stamp set.  To do that, I masked off the top and bottom of my cardstock.  Then I stamped the solid stripes vertically and the thin double lines both vertically and horizontally.  I used a sentiment from Super Star and stamped it repeatedly above and below my design.  I was going to call the card finished at that point, but decided to add a star for a little bit of pop!

I am going to be giving this card to my super star Conner who is having two teeth pulled tomorrow morning!!!


Stamps:  Super Star, Country Charm, So 80's (WPlus9 Design Studio), Happy Trails (PTI)
Ink:  Pool Party, Not Quite Navy (SU!)
Paper:  Whisper White, Not Quite Navy (SU!)
