My boy.

As you can tell, I have a lot of upcoming boy's birthdays.... you will be seeing more :) As Tania commented in a previous card, it is hard to sometimes come up with ideas once they are past that dump trucks and robots! Hopefully I can inspire you {a wee bit} with some of these.
This card is for my son who will be turning 11 {gasp!!} in March. Yes, I'm ahead of the game, working on that this year!
He loves the water & is looking forward to our return to Arizona this spring. Although we won't be there for his actual birthday, I thought he'd appreciate the surfer, even if he is a chicken ☺.
I hand cut some waves for this background and then used my StazOn White to ink up the edges to make them stand out a bit more and give them a bit of that foamy edge. I stamped 'happy birthday' in the stazon & for some reason it didn't ink well, so I took my Versamark and stamped over top of it again. Not *quite* what I was looking for, but it worked. I then added a few red eyelets to the top to help balance the card a bit and although it's hard to see, I did stamp a line of stars along the bottom of the eyelet row.
Stamps - Whipper Snapper, Technique Tuesday
Paper - Stampin' Up!
Ink - Brilliance Graphite Black, White Stazon, Versamark
Other - red eyelets (SU), Copic Markers
So another boy/masculine card for you to see. What are you working on these days?
Happy Stamping,
