SSINKspiration Kids Birthday: Boys will Be Boys

Good morning!  We've made it through the halfway point of the week and finally we're getting a break from the rain and looking forward to a couple nice days.  Today over on the SSINKspiration blog we're showcasing kid's birthdays and by know you know one of my favorite stamp sets (and so sad it's retiring, boo!) is the Boys will be Boys set so I had to take it out to make one last project to share (don't worry this set isn't going any where since my kiddo loves all things boy and especially Legos).

I started with Pacific Point cardstock for the cardbase and used the Project Life Corner Rounder Punch to punch the corners (actually used the corner rounder punch on all the layers of this card so I'm just putting it out there now).  Then I embossed a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock with the Big Shot and Confetti Embossing Folder for the cardfront.  I added a piece of designer series paper from the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack (retiring) and matted that with Real Red cardstock and then wrapped a piece of Pacific Point 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon around the cardstock and tied a bow before adding it to the cardfront.

For the stamped image, I used the Boys will be Boys (retiring) stamp set to stamp the Lego image on Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored it in with Stampin' Write Markers and then punched it out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch.  I matted that with a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock that was punched out with the 2" Circle Punch and then a piece of Basic Black cardstock punched out with the 2 3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch (retiring) before attaching the whole piece with dimensionals to the cardfront.  The greeting is from the same stamp set and was tamped in Real Red ink and then punched out with the Washi Label Punch (retiring) and sponged around the edge with Pacific Point ink before attaching it with dimensionals as well. 

This card has all the classic Lego colors which makes it perfect for kids (of any age) and a perfect way to celebrate birthdays.  Make sure to check out the other fun cards the design team is sharing for more kid's birthday inspiration.
