Birthday Card - Boy

Even after many years of making boy cards I still find it a challenge, so I was very thankful to have the 'Leaping Lizards' cut set from Lettering Delights. I was able to make yet another card that I expect will bring a smile to a boy's face. It makes me smile anyway ;-)

The lizard came together very quickly with simple layering and just a bit of shading with pastels. I put him on a strip of kraft card, stamped with a Heidi Schwapp wood grain stamp. The card looked a bit bare so before I adhered anything on there I sprayed it with a couple of green alcohol inks.

The sentiment was written with the Silhouette Cameo and a Sharpie pen and coloured with colour pencils. I did the same for the inside of the card -

In the end I enjoyed the challenge and process of making another boy card!
