Army Men, Legos, and Robots

I have several nephews, and one of them just turned 8 years old. I have been trying to use the cards in my stash to send things, thinking that if I use my ready made ones instead of making a card specifically for each person right when I need it, that I might actually send more cards out. Ha! Nothing in my stash felt right for little Caden, so I ended up making a card for him, on his birthday... so it will arrive to him a few days later. Sorry buddy!

I needed a card for a rough and tumbled, totally boy boy. And what boy doesn't love army men, Legos, and robots?! So I quickly heat embossed these images in White embossing powder, grabbed 3 likely colors, plus the ever so lovely retired River Rock for the background, and quickly watercolored the whole panel with my Aqua painter. Heat emboss the sentiment on a skinny strip of vellum scrap, stitch the layers together, glue it to a card base, and voila! A card for Caden!

The images on the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base could not really be watercolored, but the blender pen work wonders here :)

I hope Caden likes this card, although be an 8 year old boy, I imagine he will be more excited about the money in the card than the actual card, lol!

Have you made any little boy cards lately? I would love to hear about yours!
