I have lots of leaves & plants that work for masculine cards. They'd be OK for a teenager, but I wanted something fun for this kid who is very intelligent. Pulled out the Hero Arts Number Background stencil which is ON SALE in the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies store. I made a white card with Spellbinders Labels 22 & inked the front using Versamark over the stencil. After heat embossing with clear embossing powder I sponged on Distress Inks dusty concord, mowed lawn & salty ocean. An older Hero Arts sentiment was stamped & cut into a banner which I popped up. I know he will really only be interested in the check inside, but I loved making this simple card.
Now I can see using that stencil for a lot of different looks. The a2z store has great Hero Arts products & you can use my discount code, GRETA15, to enjoy 15% off a minimum $25 purchase. I did use scraps so will enter over at Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
