Boy's Toys!


Now I'm back from my holiday, I've had to turn my attention to a card for my Nephew's birthday ... today!

This great card is called Boys Will Be Boys, and it is one of the 30 kits in the £5 Summer Grab Bag, still available from Paper Creator. It's a Pop Out Stepper Card and, despite this being the first time I've made a stepper card, was very easy to put together thanks to the instructions provided. The set also includes a backing paper and envelope.

Depth is added to the card with the use of decoupage layers ... and this time, I did remember to use sticky pads to raise the layers! LOL :o) !!!!! The stars are only raised by 1 layer, the sentiment tag "Boys Will Be Boys" is raised by 2 layers and the central image of skateboard and handcart is raised by 4 layers, although I've only used 2.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Hope you like it!


  1. Aw I love this honey. :0) You should enter it into our red and blue challenge over at paper creator's crafts too. Smiles. It runs until this evening. hehe.

  3. Blogger is messing with me today, so if you get this message twice I apologize.
    I just wanted to say that this card is simply adorable and for your first center step card, you've knocked it out of the ballpark.
    LOVE that little sign on the playhouse/fort too!
    Thank so much for sharing it with us at Top Tip Tuesday for our "Masculine" challenge. :)
