Blue Boys Birthday Card

Hey There!  Thanks for stopping by again to take a peak at what I've been busy working on.  As I had mentioned in my last post I was moving away from Thank You cards and towards Birthday Cards.  

I created this card in blues so that you could give it to a male (or female).  I had also mentioned before that I am on a peel off sticker kick at the moment, and that I am very much enjoying using them on my cards.  I also pulled out my Promarkers and since they were still on my desk I thought that I would just reach for them to colour the presents with various colours of Blue.  I love the monochromatic colours of this card, and the silver accents which just give it that class. 

I had enough Presents that I could create 2 cards using the gifts, and I will show just the one here.  On the second one the only change that I made was that at the top of the left and right corners in the blank white space I simply added the numbers 30 to each side to personalize it with an age. (I have linked to the stickers below in the comments if you are interested at all in supplies I used)

I am thrilled with how this card turned out, and wish that I had more of these present peel offs that way I could create another one, with a different colour.  I love that this card literally could be done in any could and the sentiment could read anything, and it could be used for any occasion...think about it (birthday, christmas, easter, valentines, baby/wedding showers, etc).

Here's the front of the card...
