More Teen Boy Birthday Cards

Hello! I'm on a roll with teen boy birthday cards! Here is another candidate for those harder to please creatures that live under my roof. This one uses all the cool colors of the rainbow (Catherine Pooler Inks) to create a sort of background on the card with the CAS-ual Fridays Shenanigans birthday sentiment. Then on the bottom of the card the rest of the message surrounds the last, purple "birthday."

Did you notice that the tail of the "y" in "happy" perfectly encircles the dotted "i" from "birthday"? Oh, that makes me happy. And reminds me of just the sort of design detail Ardyth would use on her CAS cards.

Here is my progression of cards, until I figured out that the "y" would cradle the dotted "i" and was finally happy enough to stop. The others are definitely usable, especially for the teens.

The spacing, the colors, the layout, all make me happy on this card.

These cards are over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog today if you'd like additional information. Feel free to use my code "KELLY2017" which will save you 15% off any purchases at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

  3. Oh my gosh, brilliant birthday cards Kelli. I love this idea!

  4. I love the progression of color!

  5. Love these, and how the y of the happy curves are around the dot!

  6. Persistence paid off, Kelly, although I do think all the other versions are terrific too.

  7. Yep, definitely a teen boy pleaser!!

  8. Haha! I'm glad you think that was an 'Ardyth' thing to do because I think it's very, very clever!
