Today I am sharing two cards I made for very young boys! In fact both are for Nephews!
This was made for the nephew of a friend who is battling cancer. Since I usually create with grunge on my mind and more on an adult level, it was a little difficult for me to get into a kid mode! I had this all set to go on different background paper and then thought, think kid! I remembered some Minds Eye paper I won from Jan and thought, OK, I can grunge and be cute cherry at the same time. I sure hope this will cheer him up while he wins this big battle! The "Old Jalopy" is of course from Tim Holtz new Sizzix line!
I Brake For Stamps and Della was so quick in sending this out. I don't have very many baby stamps, so really needed one. She also threw in some "freebies" and you know how we love that!! The frame was another challenge as I did not know what I wanted to do, other than framing the tiny one! Oh, I printed the picture from a photo taken at the hospital a few days after he was born. I tried a couple of things with the frame, but decided to go with boyish type colors and did a technique from the Technique Junkies, Antique Glimmers. The sheen is gorgeous and I did want a more vintage feel to the frame. This was not easy to cut out both inside and out! After I cut it out, I used markers to add extra color to the alphabet and other little sweet things. I keep thinking I might add some bling around the rattle top, but not sure. What do you think??? I wanted a more lively background, so used some striped paper with the color I used in the baby block frame. I really like this frame and hope the parents do!!!
