Papertrey Ink Blog Hop- April

Hi friends,
Today, I'm participating in:

This month the challenge is to create a card for a boy/ man. I've got lots of those at home so I'm usually in need of the kind of card I've got for ya today.
Here's my card:
card size: 3 x 3" (updated)
Yes, I actually made this card! As you know CAS is my kryptonite, but it was so awesome to make a card speedy quick! It's one layer, one sentiment, one hand-made embellishment! Easy peasy! I embossed the edge the card, & did a little faux stitching. My boys are always getting hurt playing sports & just being boys, so I can't waste a band-aid on a card, so I made my own :)


Here's how quick & easy it is to make:
Step 1: (I used scrap paper, but you'll use whatever color you'd like your band-aid to be.)
I used this punch & punched 2 shapes. Cut the ends off of 1 to create the center part of the band-aid. If you don't have this punch, cut out a rectangle from cardstock & round all the corners.

Step 2: (This step is optional & not necessary if you're using pattern paper)
Run your pieces through the CB Swiss Dots embossing folder (you want the DEBOSSED side)

Step 3: Ink the edges & add foam adhesive to the center piece & adhere to the larger piece.

Tah Dah! You're done :)

Thanks so much for peeking today. I think we all need easy ideas for those pesky boy cards! I'm off to join you in the hop! If you'd like to join me, you can start at Nichole's blog---> Here.

  13. What a great idea for a boys get well card. I always tend to think of flowers for get wells, but they don't really work for men do they?! This is a great alternative!
