The Paper Shelter Challenge #386 Birthday Boy

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter this week. Today our challenge is called Birthday Boy, wo we would love to see all your male themed birthday cards and projects.

Now a lot of people say that they find male cards hard to make, but I think they are probably easier than female cards as they tend to be more simple, less embellishments and less frills and die cuts. I used the fabulous Swag for my card and what a perfect image this one is for a teenage boy card! I just used some patterned papers and then die cut my sentiment twice, once in green and once in turquoise to mount one behind the other. Nice and simple and fairly quick to make too.

This card is also for
