Happy Birthday

Today's card was created for The Male Room Young Ones challenge. The challenge is to create a card for a male baby or little boy. I don't know anyone pregnant right now with a little boy so I decided to focus on little boy birthdays since I have nephews with birthdays coming up soon. I began with a simple card base and layered on some black cardstock from Hobby Lobby. I cut down a piece of evergreen cardstock from Recollections and embossed it using a Cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder and adhered the panel onto my card. I stamped four of the adorable critters from the Close To My Heart In The Wild stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink and cut the images down to simple squares. I layered them onto black cardstock squares cut slightly larger and adhered them onto to my card using some 3M foam tape. I cut a fishtail banner using a Jillian Vance die and some more black cardstock and adhered that to the card using foam tape. I used my Stampin' UP Word Window punch and some white cardstock from Staples and stamped the birthday sentiment from Sweet Stamp Shop's Just The Basics stamp set and adhered that to the fishtail banner. Using the same evergreen cardstock I die cut a few of the buttons from the My Favorite Things button die set. I tied a bow using some black and white baker's twine from We R Memory Keepers and adhered the button the card with some more foam tape. This is such a fun and simple card to make taking less than 10 minutes to put together from start to finish. I hope you like it!
