Shaped Cards....Boy Style!!!

I just got the Boys Will Be Boys cricut cartridge in the mail last week and I immediately ripped it open! Now, with my son being 9 and growing up so fast, I wasn't so sure that I wanted this cartridge, but seeing the images made me think otherwise!! When I saw the fire truck image I knew I wanted to make it into a shaped card so I immediately started welding and sizing the fire truck using my Gypsy! I made it quite large ( about 7x4.5 inches) came out so cute and my son just loved it!!! didn't stop there!!!! I kept on welding and sizing and cutting!

I made the police car..............
and the tractor..............
and the monster truck...........I just had so much fun with these shaped cards!!! Not only are these perfect for my son and my daughters friends (birthday parties seem like every other week around , but they are great career cards for adults, too!!!

I hope you have enjoyed this mini series of truck shaped cards as much as I have enjoyed creating them!! Stay tuned for some sports shaped cards to come in the near!!

Enjoy your day!!!!


  1. Thes cards are so fun and you are right that cartridge is awesome...I do not even have a boy and I love love it.

  2. These are so cute! You did an awesome job!

  3. I'm bidding and hoping to win this cartridge now. I don't have a gypsy. Can I weld these in the Cricut craftroom? Will that be hard? I haven't used the craftroom yet, but I need 20 invitations. Your cards are soooo awesome! I want to make mine like your did yours. thanks

  4. Thank you so much for reminding me about shaped cards. I made the truck one for a little boy turning two this month. It will go perfect with the Duplo Creative Cars set we are gifting him.
