Today I want to share some cards I made for little boys' birthdays. I have never had to make cards for children before, so this was completely new to me! I really enjoyed the challenge though and it was nice to make something different.
When starting I knew that I wanted to use bright colours and keep the cards quite simple as they were for young boys.
The first is a first birthday card. I used the main image of a lion, which I cut out from some wrapping paper. You can get so many nice images from wrapping paper at a good price and you often get lots of different images on one sheet. I kept the rest of the card simple with a plain blue background and different colour blue stars. I picked the colours to match the "Happy Birthday" banner that I used. Obviously I had to include the number 1 too as it's such an important birthday!
The second card is for a boy's third birthday. I used more colours on this card, but again used wrapping paper for my main images of a boat and a bus. I then added a large number 3 and some stars in colours to match.
