CardzTV "Oh SNAP!"

WAHOO!!! It's Friday!!!

So happy that the weekend is here!

But before that gets started, we have a super fun
challenge starting over at CardzTV!


We want you to create a Child's Birthday Card
using Buttons, Brads, and/or Bows.

I decided to create a more boyish card for this challenge
because I never seem to have one when I need one :)

So here is my project:
I used Birthday Bash to cut out this cute little gator.
I used some black brads for the eyes and
I inked around the edges with some
ColorBox Aquamarine Chalk Ink.

The sentiment is from CardzTV "This N That" set and I 
cut the mat using some zig zag scissors.
I also inked around the edges of that.

My ribbon is from American Crafts and my paper is from
DCWV The Birthday Wishes 6x6 stack.

 Here is the inside:
I printed out on some green cardstock the
"It's Your Birthday" from my computer,
then stamped the "Have a happy YOU day!" underneath.
That stamp is also from the This N That set.

I cut this mat with the zig zag scissors and 
inked around these edges too.

I added a scrap piece left over from the front
for a bit of an accent on the inside.

I think this turned out super fun for a little boy!

I hope that you will join us over at CardzTV for this
awesome challenge and can't wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

  2. What a cute card you really did find some cool papers too. I love that you used your Cricut YAY!! Your gator turned out so cute too and clever idea using your zig zag scissors for the inside mat as it looks like the gator chewed on it. Love that stamp set. Great creative job!!

  3. This is so cute Emily! The colors are so bright and cheerful and the Oh Snap sentiment is perfect!

  4. Such a happy and fun card - perfect for a child's birthday!
