Scenic Birthday Boy Card with Peachy Keen Stamps


 
Hello everyone!!  This is my second post for the day....to see another fun project, scroll down.  Today I get to share a fun birthday card on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog that you can create for that special little boy in your life.  I don't know about you, but I am always running short on birthday cards and since I have many more nephews than nieces in my family, there is always a need for a birthday card for a little boy.  The Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment from Peachy Keen Stamps is my favorite face set for little boys.

I stamped the background with the new Cloudy Day background stamp in two different colors of blue ink.  I find it easier to add ink to these large images with a brayer.  It provides a more even ink coverage.  After adding the stamped background image to the card, I used my sewing machine to stitch along the edges of the image.
I used my Cricut and the This and That cartridge from Creative Memories to cut out this little boy.  I added some ink and this adorable face from the Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment along with a little chalk on the cheeks and some white gel pen for the whites of the eyes and some freckles on his cheeks.  I inked up and added some stitching to the die cuts, too.  I also cut out a fence and some grass to go behind the boy and added them to the card first.  I finished it off with a little bit of bakers twine from The Twinery.

I hope that this has inspired you to get working on some birthday cards for the sweet little boy in your life.

Hugs,
Amy
