It is always a challenge making cards for the guys - there have been a few ideas floating around in my head and I finally got one created!!! There are very few stores I go to that as I peruse the aisles I am not thinking of how something can be used in an exploding box card. This mini ATV was a find at the local Dollar store....costing so little I decided to make the $1.00 investment and bring it home to play with.......I dug out my air dry crayola clay and made a base that I dabbed with some paints. When that was dry I used some of my collal glue to attach the ATV....then it was time to design the Exploding Box and sentiment. I had several sentiments in mind but decided on "You're never too old to play in the dirt" - I could have taken it in a few different directions, but this will work for a Birthday. All in all I think its rather cute and certainly will work for a guy......but I'm not averse to changing the Box to red and making it for a girl.....I think there are plenty of young ladies who like to play in the dirt as well.
