Male birthday card
I find boys cards so much harder to make than girl cards. Even a lot of the sentiment stamps that I have are a bit too fancy or 'flourishy' for male cards. Anyway, I like how this turned out. I love this sentiment on the card too - a bit of fun! It's from CC Designs stamps - there are lots of cute little sayings in her sentiment sets. I like to use bright, bold colours on boys cards. Looking at this picture, I wish that I had used a brighter patterned paper for the third chevron, it seems to get a bit lost in this photo.
I'm a bit obsessed with sewing on my cards at the moment, so of course I didn't consider that the card was finished until I'd done a couple of laps around the edges of it with the sewing machine. I would have loved to have done zig zags instead of straight stitch, but once again my sewing machine is not cooperating and has decided that it would rather not do a zig zag. Sigh!
Thanks for looking!
