Boy themed Birthday Cards November 07, 2016 07:00

Happy Monday, Just Nick friends!  I'm here to kick off free for all week on the blog with some boy themed birthday cards.  Birthday greetings for some of the bigger guys in my life are definitely something I never have enough of in my stash.  Lucky for me, Just Nick has some of the coolest cut files for those tween and teenage boys.

The converse style tennis shoe from the sk8er cut file makes for a fun focal point, to a teenage boy's birthday greeting.

 

I cut two of the shoes, layering one atop of the other with foam adhesive and added a bit of string to represent the shoelaces.  Cutting the image from several colors of paper makes for a more detailed and realistic image.

For my second card, I pulled several images from the Gamer digital design.  I knew I wanted to used the 'gamer' word as part of my greeting, so I sized and cut that portion of the file first. I then selected the game controller and headphone images, to compliment my sentiment. 

The skull from the sk8er file was a last minute addition to my card, but I love it adds a bit more 'grit' to my design and nestles just perfectly between the headgear.  I know the boy who receives this will appreciate that little detail.
