Little Boy Blue

I don't seem to have managed many challenge cards recently, so here's one which covers a few.
Just Cute Bears - Recipe 3 brads, 2 Papers, 1 ribbon
Everybody Art - Sketch
Daring Cardmakers - Boyzone (Sponsored by Charmed Cards & crafts)
The stipulation from Daring Cardmakers was that the card should be for a little boy or a teenage boy, but not a grown-up.
This image of Roger Bear is perfect for a little chap and the sentiment from MSE fits the bill too.
The three brads were heat embossed with the baby blue embossing powder, giving them an enameled appearance, which I prefer to the basic brass. Take care if you do this, to make sure that you hold the brads with tweezers as the heat gun can make them pretty hot!!
The papers are Little Kwackers from Cuddly Buddly.
I really should try to do a bit more instead of phaffing about!


  1. This is so cute. I love the sentiment.

  2. Chrissie he is so cute, good luck with all the challeges.
    For Valentine cards I needed some red heart brads and as I had some red embossing powder i did the same as you but I used a wooden clothes peg to hold the brad while heating it and that worked well.
