Vroom...Vroom... Birthday Card

Making cards for guys can by challenging.  Most of the embellishments in the crafts stores are pretty feminine. There are lots of flowers and gems.  When my kids were younger, I could easily use some cartoony type images, super heroes and the like. But as they are getting older, it's another challenge!

I made this card for my oldest son's birthday.  I stuck with primary colors and a theme that never guys never seem to outgrow - cars!

I designed the card in Silhouette Studio software and cut the shapes using my Cameo.  I first printed the word "birthday" on the cardstock before doing the cutting.

My son loved the card! Especially since he'd recently purchased his first (used) car.
