Hey friends! I just wanted to pop in with a quick post to share the card I made for Bugaboo's Freebie Friday at Catch the Bug:
This little fella is called Kidlet - Curly Hair Boy. Isn't he just so adorable? I love him in his little bib overalls and matching shirt! Kinda reminds me of Garanimals clothing...do you remember those? They were always so cute and matchy-matchy. I'm pretty sure I wore my fair share of those back in the day! 😉
For this card, I wanted to choose colors that didn't really expressly shout "BOY", but nothing that would read girly either. I chose this green striped paper and the wood paper from a Recollections 12x12 paper pad called Seaglass. The sentiment also comes from the paper pad, and I thought it would be really cute with this small guy. I asked my buddy Renee from Delaney Jane Cards for advice on whether or not a hexagon looked like a "masculine" shape, LOL! We both agreed that it kinda did, so I just went with it! I used the largest Spellbinders Hexagon die to cut the wood paper, and then just traced the outside of the die onto the olivey-green card stock and cut it with my trimmer. Easy peasy!
