Little boy birthday

The challenge on Less is More this week is for a clean and simple masculine card. I seem to be always in need of little boys' birthday cards so I decided to go "young masculine" for this one!

The punched out letters are coated with Glossy Accents to give them a nice domed finish and the black dots anchoring the orange strip are actually the waste from die cutting tags that have a hole at the top. I added a dot of Glossy Accents on those too.

None of the boys I send cards to are really little monsters but I do love this crazy little character for kids' cards!

Stamps:
Little Guy (Cornish Heritage Farms, retired)
Old Book alpha stamps
Word "birthday" from HOTP set

Paper:
Kraft
Black
Orange
White

Ink:
Brilliance by Tsukineko (Graphite black)
Versacraft by Tsukinkeko (Spring Green)

Other:
Copic markers
Small circle punch
Corner Chomper by We R Memory Keepers
Glossy Accents by Ranger


Thanks for stopping by!
