Being a mom of twin teenage boys I’m always on the lookout for new masculine paper collections, so naturally I was thrilled to see the My Little Boy Mini-Theme release. But since my boys are big boys, I love to find collections that are versatile enough for me to use on projects for them. And that’s exactly the case with this collection!
I wanted to create some cards I can give to my boys to let them know how proud I am of all their hard work in school this past year, so I opted to use the generic prints and stickers in the collection, and combine them with some fun Designer Dies. To save time I used a similar design for each card. Since the design has more of a vertical feel, I used 4 ¼ x 5 ½ inch card bases that open at the bottom.
To create the sentiment for the “Hello” card, I trimmed the bottom off the “Hello Little One” sticker accent and placed it flush with the bottom of the card. I’m often looking for ways that I can alter embellishments to fit my needs and stretch my supplies.
I pulled in a few semi-solid papers from the Dots & Stripes Neutrals 8×8 Paper Pad, and the Made From Scratch 6×6 Paper Pad for some of the die cutting. I love that Echo Park offers so many paper options that coordinate so well with their other collections.
Thanks for letting me share this masculine card set with you. Three cheers for Echo Park’s awesome new boy paper collections!
