Dream Big Greeting Card


Hey there Peeps!  I’ve got a really fun retro inspired card to share today that’s got fabby bright colors and patterned papers that are so vintagy they will just make you smile : ) The patterned papers here are from the Carta Bella Toy Box Collection.

Who says cards for boys have to be boring? I did all my layering like I would any other card and it turned out great!

I created a tag from the cut apart and added a metal eyelet to string striped ribbon trim through.

I’ve wrapped twine around the center section and behind the tag.

Using spacers between the layers helps the details pop.  The inside of the card is finished with coordinating patterns.

Not only is this card a thoughtful gift….but wouldn’t it look cute displayed in a little boys bedroom? Or even a big boys mancave lol .

Okay…so I’m having myself a Mom moment. Seems like just yesterday my little guy was wearing his Osh Kosh  biballs and watching Blue’s Clues and going fishing with his Dad with his Snoopy “fishing rope” and calling the firetrucks “firesharks”. Today is a huge milestone for us as #1 Son just got his first car. Oh snap…did I just say that?????

D.H. Kenny brought it home today. Alex drove us to Taco Bell for dinner LOL. Yes that is the big black truck I drive. I did mention that I’m a country girl right? Actually that’s D.H.’s truck but it got handed down to me and Kenny drives my car “awesome gray Charger” to work since he has such a long commute and it’s better for gas mileage.

Hopefully this milestone is easier with #2 Son Jonathan. I still have a few more years until he starts driving. Until then…I think I’ll go drown my misery in a festive beverage and enjoy some beautiful  weather out back and watch the sunset. Hope you all have a wonderful evening! G
