For this week 10 Minute Craft Dash I bring you a boy card sometimes I struggle to find ideas for boys because they have to be masculine with out bows or girly things that I used to put on cards because I’m a girl lol.

Tips to make a boy card:

- Instead of making a bow do a knot

- Great ideas for embellishments: enamel dots, brads and simple buttons.

- Search for boy themes like: astronauts, sports, pirates, cars, etc.

- Less is more, less embellishments make a more simple card… guys are simple we are complex. lol

- If you want to give it a more masculine look distress a little the papers or ink the edges.

Hope that this Tips can help you if you struggle to make cards like me but everyday I surprise myself that I’m making boy cards without much trouble.

The colors of this week are: Orange, black and green.

After seeing the video I hope that you get a little inspired and run to your craft table and make cute projects in 10 minutes, upload them to the 10 Minute Craft Dash #27 Challenge and have the chance to win the amazing price (you can see it above).
