Simple, Yet 'Cool' Boy Cards

Hello!  The heat wave in Wisconsin is over.  It'll be in the 70's this weekend.  Yeah!  I can turn the AC off and open the windows and drapes again.

I needed two masculine cards this week for teen/college age boys, and I needed them quick.  Letting designer paper do the work for me, I simply cut a sheet of designer paper from the Me and My Big Ideas 'Urban Youth' stack, and adhered it to a complimentary colored card stock.  Then, I applied Epoxy Stickers by Creative Imagination 'Sports Extreme' to the bottom of the card, right on top of the designer paper.  It was super easy and quick, yet, still looks 'cool' and well done.

 Here is the second card using a different sheet of designer paper and stickers.

I use to hate stickers because they were so 'cheap' looking;  but now they have dimensional stickers, they have epoxy stickers, glitter name it, they have it!  Stickers now look so sharp and well done, that they can not only be used as just an embellishment, but also as the main focal point of the card.  I love them because they can really make paper crafting quick and easy when I'm pressed for time.

Have a great day! Amy


  1. Wow that is one quick way to make some cards, the background paper and the fab stickers made it look far more complicated. Love them both!

  2. WOW! Love these creations and the cool paint effects on them! Such perfect designs for teens!! I need to make some of these! Thanks for the inspiration! HUGS :)
