From the title of this challenge you probably guessed that it’s about creating a card fit for a boy.
But we don’t like it to be that simple, so let’s add the challenging part…
Create a birthday card for a boy, but skip the traditional BLUE color.
I asked my boys "What kind of birthday card would you like to receive?" and they just replied "Any kind." I asked them about colors and they said "Any color." I asked "What if it is a pink card?". They replied "It's OK.". Hmm... and they can be so specific about their birthday party and presents. "I want a NERF gun", "I want The Hunger Games Trilogy", "I want a RIPSTIK waveboard".
I decided to go on my own way to make this card. My guys and I like reptiles (in fact they bugged me for a green snake a while back but green snakes eat life white mice). We especially like the green iguana because of its spiky look and the fact that it is a herbivore (so no need to get life food).
My initial card did not have any creativity in it, so I decided to make a new one, using the same green iguana lizard image which I like very much. This time, I thought about the layout and used 3 different patterned papers for contrast. Stuck the Happy Birthday sticker on a card base and cut it out before mounting it on the left top corner. To complete the look, I lined a piece of ribbon just under the lizard and stuck 3 green buttons on the bottom right.
