Stampin' Up! Australia - CAS(E) This Sketch - Stampin' Up! Boys Will Be Boys


This card was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch this week. I had been colouring this set a while ago and had this perfect robot just waiting for a card to hop on to! :)

This set is unfortunately named "Boys Will Be Boys"....and given today is International Women's Day...it is cause to reflect on how language and labelling can engender sexism (despite being quite unintentional). You can read my small rant regarding the name of this set here. I do think this set should have been given a name that encompasses both genders....Kids Playground or Building Blocks or something like that.

Anyway...this card is perfect for a boy OR a girl...and who wouldn't want a robot wishing them Happy Birthday!

It is also quite a tactile card given the embossing on the silver foil - very bumpy and fun to touch and look at.

Here is the CTS sketch:
