When I set about making a card for my good friend's nephew, I had the same concerns. What are little boys into these days? This young man is 8, lives in Romania and is very much into music - real music, not the stuff that gives you a migraine. To me it sounded like a job for the Cricut "Quarter Note" cartridge...and I was kinda hoping Mihai would agree!
Here's the final cut - a 5"x5" card that looks like this:
|I hand stitched the panels with dark brown embroidery floss and added his name and age with black peel-offs.|
|I adhered the cut-outs to the card using foam tape for some dimensional interest.|
|For the inside, I stamped the greeting on a strip of the music sheet and adhered it to the top, leaving plenty of room a message below.|
