MCT ~ Manly Monday

Good morning! I sure hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Today is Manly Monday over at My Creative Time with Emma and the design team. This is when we make "manly" cards. Well I sure hope this card counts even though it is for a 10 year old "little" man! Ha!
My son has a sweet little baseball friend who is turning 10 very soon. I decided to use the red, white and blue colors, along with stars, since their uniforms/team is all about!
I couldn't help but to use the new Party Hat Dies and Let's Party Word Dies for my card today.  I LOVE the little hat die from this set, its seriously so darn cute! My stars are from the 4 x 4 Journal Die + More set. If you haven't thought about the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies, you might want too because they add that perfect detail to any project. My #10 is from Number Fun Dies + Add Ons.
Super fun and fast card for that special little man friend!
Materials Used:
Paper ~ PTI and Bazzill
Darice embossing folder

  8. OH my goodness, is this the cutest card ever!!! I purchased that sweet little party hat die, and can't wait to make a card up with it!!! Thanks for the awesome inspiration!!

  9. ooohhhh...the agony of creating "manly cards". Considering that I have a hubby, two sons and two grandsons, you would think I would have no problems with guy cards...sigh. Anyway, this on is perfect. The color combo is great and I love the layout. The party hats are great for any age and adding the year adds the personal touch - I love it!
