Notes for a boy

Today I am sharing a set of note cards I made for one of the boys in my life.  Sometimes there are letters and notes that need to be written and, well, it's nice to have your own stuff ready to go.  When I saw the photo at The Card Concept this go round I was really drawn to all the different patterns. 

These are not subtle, hidden patterns.  They are basic and bold.  It seemed so fitting for a tween (does "tween" even apply to boys?)  boy.  The splash of red is perfect.  The pillow on the chair was what sealed the deal for the direction I took.  Here is the set of four cards.

I used bold patterns in Smokey Shadow so it's not quite black.  And I don't think these could be anything but Clean and Graphic.  I chose to use four different fonts for the monogram to add variety. 

Thanks for stopping by to take a look.  

Stamps: PTI (Polka Dots 1 and 2, Chevron, Faux Ribbon), Ma Vinci (Letters)
Dies: PTI (Limitless Layers Squares)
Paper: PTI (White, Smokey Shadow)
Others: Embossing Powder (Ranger), Versamark Ink, PTI Smokey Shadow Ink, Copics
