I absolutely loved this week's Make it Monday over at Papertrey Ink. The flag style banners introduced by Dawn McVey were so fun. They were a perfect excuse to pull out my 6x6 paper pads and I made 2 different cards, one feminine and one masculine.
On this first one, I used the beautiful My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing Tangerine collection. My PTI addition was the place card and butterfly from Places, Please and the sentiment from the Tiny Treats: Birthday Stamp Set. This will be my birthday card to my niece.
My second card uses Basic Grey Marrakech papers and a Jillibean Soup Happy Birthday label. I also added some white enamel dots from the My Minds Eye Kate & Co Oxford collection. I think they are the first ones I have seen in white.
This card is for my son. I can't believe he is 12 already! His birthday is today, but he is currently at Boy Scout summer camp. We celebrated Friday, but I sent a care package with this card so that he has something to open on his actual birthday. I put some money in it so that he can get himself an ice cream treat at the Trading Post!
I kept my cards very close to what Dawn did on her examples. However, I have seen some wonderful variations in the Make it Monday #119 gallery. Go check them out!
Thanks for stopping by!
