I would love to make a pretty easy but cute birthday card that I can give to my boyfriend. This is the first time I'm giving him something so I want it to be some thing special and romantic and cute:)**************************
Hmm. I guess it all depends on the stamps you already have, or the punched shapes you can make. You can always write your own sentiment on your card rather than stamping it.
I picked out a few of my favourite cards to show you as ideas for making one for your boyfriend's birthday. Most of them are stamped with very little tricky bits about them :) I like to find a cute image and make it say something sweet, like I have done with the penguin card. I used a small heart image to stamp the 'cloud' above his head.
You could make something like the porcupine card only make it in masculine colours. I tore the edges of the paper I have used in the background to give it extra interest.
The 'Wonderful' card is probably the easiest one to make. I used one colour of ink and stamped my images across the top, then added some crimped paper as 'ribbon' (I also added some black split pin brads to the paper ribbon). Then I stamped the sentiments straight on to the card at the bottom.
If you have an animal stamp you can use it as I have in the owl cards to make two side by side images. Change the eyes of the animal a little with a black felt tipped pen to make it seem as though they are looking at each other.
I hope one of these ideas gives you a place to start with your own special birthday card. When you have made it, please do take a picture of it to show me?
Happy card making!
