Boyish Bandit

I’m really big on the girl cards.  Girls like pretty things.. butterflies, flowers, swirls.. and I like making pretty things!  So I’m definitely lacking in boy cards.  When I jumped into Challenge 84 over at Clean and Simple Stamping, I decided to give myself the bonus challenge of making this one “boy friendly”

Does this count?  It’s sort of boy colours (brown, blue, green).. and some lovely twine.. and a very boyish raccoon.. OK, it’s definitely girl friendly too, but I’m hoping it’ll work as a Birthday card for Nathan!

I had fun playing with some hemp rope of different weights, and who doesn’t love scalloped edges?!

Want to play along?  Here’s the sketch.  Head over to the challenge for more details.

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

    my boys love the cute racoon and I think the hemp goes really well. Can I also add that I love the design of your blog!
