Echo Park Design Team: February Blog Hop…

Welcome to the Echo Park Paper Design Team Blog Hop! Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team is showcasing projects from our latest collections.

January-DT-Blog-Hop-Graphic

Today I am sharing a card I created using my brand new favorite BOY-themed collection: SCOOT!

WW41016_Winter_Wishes_Collection_Kit_F

There are lots and lots of BOY birthdays coming up in our family, so I am planning to make a whole bunch of cards with this fun collection for each of the cute little guys.

blohop_birthday train card by wendysue

To make this card, I simply used one of the 4x6 cards printed on THIS sheet as the base:

scoot_4x6_journaling_cards

Then I added some border stickers, number stickers, and some coordinating paper strips…

Of course, there were plenty of foam dots added for dimension (because I LOVE foam dots), and some fun teal baker’s twine as well…

It was really a quick and easy card to put together – and fun to add a bit of personalization with the number sticker too.

  20. Perfect card for a young man, and a wonderful showcase of the Scoot collection. Next card-giving opportunity is today: a Happy Engagement heading off to my cousin and his new fiance; Happy Anniversary to my brother and his wife, married 5 years (well, technically 1.25 years, since they got married in a Leap Year!); and a 'Bee Happy' card hand-delivered to a friend. Whew...lotsa card making going on here. LOVE IT!!
    Thanks for inspiring and sharing.

  22. Cute card! I used some cut apart pages to make Valentines for my family this year. So quick and easy. The next time I'm planning on giving away handmade cards is Tuesday! I have a group of 9 year old that I work with every other week, and I'm not going to be doing that anymore. I'll miss them so much, and I want to let them know individually what I think is special about each of them!

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a great idea to use the journal card as your base. Hmm... new idea and one I don't know why I didn't think of it myself. Seems so practical. lol. I am in the middle of my next homemade card but it is for a card contest I am part of so it really isn't set out for something or someone special yet. It's a thank you so we will see...I am having surgery soon and know I will be getting some help from friends so I assume that will be it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am a scrapbooker and not a card maker! I will take inspiration from those that make cards, but haven't really tried to make one. I have been tempted to try, but I don't have tons of time so I tend to use my free time to work on my scrapbooks. I love the card you made and how you added the number to the trail of smoke...so cute. I will definitely be using that in one of my layouts. I just got Scoot so I can't wait to use it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Lovely card! Thanks for chance to win EP paper! I will try to create with its help something so remarkable!

  49. I'm already working on St. Pat's Day cards. I just got a cameo so I was playing yesterday and cut out a bunch of shamrocks and tried a few other cuts. I don't think any birthdays are coming up soon so St Pat's will be the next one's going. I do have to come up with three projects for my Stampin' Night group (that is usually 3 cards) so I'll be thinking about them too. Love the idea of using the printed cards for the birthday card. Really cute. Hope we get a boy in the family soon.
