The Boyfriend Card

So here's how this card came about...Julia (14) texting endlessly with friends...pops her head up and asks me if I would make a card for her friend's boyfriend.


First...I'm just a tiny bit flattered that one of her friends
(a) knows what I do and
(b) likes my cards.

But for her boyfriend?????

So with trepidation, I decided to tackle this...never mind that I find teenage boys hardest to make cards for...and the stress I had to put up with Julia checking on me through the whole process...well it was HER friend, she tells me...she had to make sure the card was good....

In the end, I quite like how it turned out. The friend picks it up tomorrow. Hope she likes it. Julia approves, so I should be ok.

I used the argyle embossing folder on metallic paper. Matted it with Core'dinations paper which I sanded at the edges. The sentiment is computer generated and the '2 U' are Thickers from American Crafts.

Here's the envelope...the boyfriend's name starts with K...
And no...this isn't Julia saying that she needed a card for her friends boyfriend when it was actually her boyfriend...I'm pretty sure she doesn't have a boyfriend...yup, I'm sure.
So that's the story of the boyfriend card.
