Cute card I was thinking of using playing cards but I don't think the beach theme will work in October. Thanks for giving me an idea. Maybe a ghost could hold the cards????

Yes, you could have anything holding the cards. I'm nowhere near crabs and beaches here.... just thought it was a cute way to use the cards.

Good luck finding an idea that will work for you.

It takes a bit of planning to work out what to put where, but the never-ending card is a great one for a special occasion - there's a tutorial in an old TLC thread:http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...D-t429017.html.
Or if you had a few photos from over the years you could make an accordion card - tutorial in resources. Mind you, that's more a crossover with scrapping.

Years ago I made my son's card using the baseball set from SU! It was called TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME...and I still love that set. But golf, anything sports related, if he's into sports, and even beachy, if he likes going to the beach would be good. HTH...Karen

Here's an easy Boy's Birthday card. Just cut the centre out, cut the piece a little smaller then reattach it to your card with some punched shapes or die cuts.

Since my baby boy is now in his 40's, I need to tease you a little bit, mama.

You will now be making "men's" cards instead of boys.

Masculine cards make us stop and think about things guys like. I have lots of guys in my family. I don't have a daughter-just three sons! I love it when my sons have their girlfriends over! I enjoy the company! Anyway, I love western themes for guys. Rustic, outdoors scenes and sports and music themes. Nuts and bolts, cars, hot rods, etc. I did a cool card using the Inkadinkado rock star set and my son liked it. View here Best of luck! And hope your son enjoys a happy and safe 21st birthday!
