Today my Tyler is 18 years old!  Happy Birthday Tyler!  Everyone was home this weekend and we ate dinner at the Kani house Sunday night and then came home for cake (we didn’t eat much of it though because we were stuffed from dinner).  Afterwards Greg took Kyle back to GT and Tyler went back to KSU.

Today I wanted to share the card I made for Tyler for his birthday.  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do exactly.  I decided to look for some sketch ideas and ended up with the sketch at Create with Connie & Mary.  I pulled some scraps that were sitting on my craft table from a card I made last week for my KSU class and created this:

And here is the CCMC164 sketch

My card is turned.   The base is Cajun Craze and then I have a Not Quite Navy panel.  A strip of Designer Series Paper from the Well Worn collection (works great for boys), and a piece of River Rock card stock punched with the Scallop Ribbon Border punch.  Then I wrapped Linen Thread around.

I used the Bring on the Cake stamp set for the happy birthday.Then did you notice the “eighteen” on the side.  That comes from a new stamp set called 25 and Counting – it is a Christmas set that will be out in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini catalog on Sept. 1st.  It is stamped in Cajun Craze ink on River Rock card stock and then cut out by hand.

Finally I added two Cajun Craze brads on the side.

I thought it made a nice teen boy card.  I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by today.
