One for the boys

I didn’t get a chance to make a card for this week’s Just Magnolia challenge, I still have not caught up with myself after being away for 10 days but it is a delish challenge so do pop over to take a peek at the gorgeous DT cards.

I am not a fan of making boys cards but I just love this little guy so much I had to ink him up!  The stamp is from Stampavie and is called Michael.  Isn’t he just the cutest little lad!  He will be in stock at Dies to Die For soon, as soon as they land I will let you know.  All the new releases are on order and just awaiting delivery.

The paper is My Mind’s Eye Fiddlesticks 6 x 6 pad, one of the new ones that was released at CHA.  The delish burlap ribbon was picked up at that brill little embellishment store that I found in LA, I really could have filled a freight train never mind another suitcase with goodies from that store lol.  The buttons are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The sentiment is by Tina Wenke for Stampavie and will also be in stock at Dies to Die For soon.  The zigzag border is punched with an EK Success punch … $3 from that awesome store again lol.  The Primitive Star and Weathered Clock die are both Sizzix dies.

  17. Hi Bev
    What a cute stamp, like you I can't say that boys/male cards are my forte, (BUT we all have to make them sometimes) lol, and as this one is my Hubby's namesake I guess I'm JUST going to have to buy him.

  33. Hi Bev, well I don't now why you rarely make boys cards, you have done it perfectly. I have 3boys and I have always been told, stylish is fine, but no frills, flowers or bows and not over the top - well thats exactly your card. So please do some more because I really like this.
