I made this card for a boy turning 8. I used the All Boy range of papers which are quite versatile. My challenge for myself was to incorporate some gold embellishments, so I added turn mounts . I also used glossy accents on the star to give it a raised gloss look. When making male cards , I tend to under do rather than over, as most males I know, don't like too much fuss!!! The base of the card is oatmeal card stock.
