Card For A Boy

Birthday Card

Birthday Card

Good Evening My Friends!

Thank you for all your good wishes! I made the walk to school safely, and part of it is all your warm wishes.

Talking about wishes, which wishes do you usually send and write in your cards? I think that the most popular wishes are Birthday Wishes! That is why I decided to make several birthday cards in advance. So when I will need a card I will not do a last minute project.

I think that making a card for a girl or woman is easier than for a boy or man. But when I looked at Dress Me stamp set from The Greeting Farm, I changed my mind. This cute little boy is perfect for a boy themed card! And lucky me I had on hand a beautiful designer paper from the Basic Grey collection. I stamped the main image with black StazOn ink and colored with Prisma colored pencils and OMS.

To make the “boyish” look on the card I decided to distress the edges of the horizontal panel. Little brads, buttons, sentiment stamp (from the Wardrobe #1 stamp set) and the card is ready.

I think this card can be as a birthday card not only for boy, but for man as well! You know why? Because our men are the always the same kids, they never grow up. They only change the size (and price) of the toys!

Before I will finish my post I wanted to thank you Lisa for her kindness and for giving me an award – The Marie Antoinette, a Real Person, a Real Award. Thank you Lisa!

Have a nice evening,



Сегодня мне бы хотелось Вам задать вопрос – Какие открытки  у Вас больше всего пользуются популярностью? Мой ответ на этот вопрос – открытки к Дню Рождения. А еще я заметила, что открытку к Дню Рождения мальчика порой труднее придумать, чем для девочки. Это, конечно, мое мнение.

Но сегодня я так не думала. Взяв в руки штампик от компании The Greeting Farm я уже знала, что у меня появится открытка к Дню Рождения для мальчика. И бумага под рукой оказалась с нужным дизайном. Чтобы придать большую выразительность открытке,  я решила прошить горизонтальную панель и надорвать бумажку в разных местах.

Вот сделала я открытку, а потом подумала… А по-моему такая открытка могла быть хорошим подарком и для мужчины! Почему? Наверное, потому, что наши мужчины, все те же дети, нисколько не меняются. Единственное различие между ребенком и мужчиной – игрушки, в которые они играют!

Вот и все на сегодня! Чуть не забыла –

Поздравляю Вас всех с праздником Рождества!

Всего самого хорошего,

    Elena, the coloring on this card is wonderful…he reminds me a wee bit of baby Cole!

  4. So so darling and sweet, love your coloring.

  5. Theresa says:

    This is such a darling card, Elena! I love the colors you used. So well coordinated and a beautiful job coloring! I should do more birthday cards. Mostly I do all occasion cards and add a sentiment when I send the card.

  6. Elena, I just wanted to say thank you for thinking of me when you passed on your award. You are one of the sweetest of my blogging friends and I appreciate you so much! Your card is just darling and you’re doing a wonderful job with your design team work. They’re lucky to have you. Whenever I make spare cards I either make them birthday cards, or leave them sentiment free so I can add whatever sentiment I need later. I use more birthday cards and “just because” cards than anything.

    Hi Elena,
    These days are so busy I hardly have time to visit blogs so today I’m visiting you! Yesterday me and Jessica D were talking about you and how you’re a very passionate and talented person. It is true! I am thrilled to have you on my team and very proud! And also you are right about boys and men, they are the same, just more expensive toys. hahahaha.
