An ABC Card for a Boy


Hello everyone, I hope you are well. Thank you very much for all the lovely comments that I received with my last card! This week I have made a card for a little boy. I don’t often make masculine cards as I think ladies and girls appreciate handmade cards more, but to broaden my horizons I decided to make a blue card!

This paper I bought at a cute craft shop in Sedgefield for R3.00 a sheet! I was so surprised to find such cheap, good quality paper. This little shop sells everything from ribbon to brooch pins to wool...the scrapbook paper is in a pile on a shelf and the lady is so sweet that I just sit down and work my way through the pile and pick out my favourites!
So here is my card, I hope you like it!



I really enjoyed making this masculine card...I was actually quite surprised!


I used a cute stamp from Whiff of Joy...I am still pondering on what his signboard should say...


I think the ‘ABC’ letters suit the little boy because he looks as if he is going to school...I think I might print out a ‘123’ sentiment on the signboard!


I love using corners and because this card is for a boy I didn’t think flowers would go down very well!


I put three blue gems in the bottom right-hand corner to add some ‘bling’ to my creation!

I would also like to enter the following challenges:

Many blessings,
Kelly-Anne
