For me, making cards for the men and boys in my life are always the harder cards for me to create. Maybe because I love to use things that sparkle and shine, and men/boys don't usually like those.
But when I did come up with an idea for my nephew's first birthday card I knew that the perfect paper for it would be Megan Elizabeth's Paper Layerz. Paper Layerz is a 12"x12" sheet that is divided into 9 three inch squares of coordinated paper.
So using one sheet of Paper Layerz . . . I think this pattern is the Happy Dots pattern in the Perfect Gems color scheme if I remember right . . . I cut all of the different layers needed for the little lion, his party hat and the words Party Time.
I even used some of the left over pieces of the Paper Layers sheet to mat the lion on the card. The white and the brown pieces have a really soft subtle dot pattern on them also. To finish it off I added some dots of my own with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen. Viva Decor is the perfect way to add your own little accent to a project. The dots of color are 3D and have so much shine to them.
Watch out . . . there are "imposters" out there . . .
