For the Boys

Hello! Today I made a card based on this colour combination at The Play Date Cafe. Initially I wasn’t going to give it a go because I realised I don’t have any more cardstock in that sunny yellow/orangey colour, but then I remembered I do have inks in that colour! Woohoo!

Decided to make it a card geared towards guys/boys, too!

Tip: I created that scallop by cutting a border die cut in half, length-wise. The die originally looked like this:

So go and check out your border dies/punches and see if any of them would be totally changed up if you cut them in half!
