IBS Birthday Boy

Happy Thursday!

Today, on the Inspired by Stamping Blog, we are featuring cards for kids. I decided to challenge myself by making a boy card. I figured all little boys must like frogs, so I started with the Flower of the Month: Water Lily stamp set and created a spinner card:

I stamped the hello and birthday boy sentiments, from the Big Hello stamp set (free with a $50 purchase!), directly on the patterned paper.

I cut a ¼ x 4¼ opening for the slider. The birthday wishes and just for you, from the Teeny Tiny Greetings stamp set, were stamped as a background in the slider opening.

The frog, from the FOTM: Water Lily stamp set, was stamped on green card stock, accented with a green marker, and fussy cut. I usually use pennies for the spinner, but I tried something different with this card and used two 3/8 card stock circles (one 3/8 circle inside the opening with a pop dot on top, add the second 3/8 circle on the outside of the opening, add another pop dot and then the frog). The card front was adhered to the card base with dimensionals.

As the two sentiments were still on my block, I carried them to the inside as well with another fussy-cut frog.

Do you think this is a card a little boy would like? If you haven’t tried a spinner card yet, please give it a try. They are fun and work with many different images.

Please visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog to see what Jo is sharing along with me today.

Thanks for stopping by!
