Good morning everyone! Hope your weekend is going well.
Today I'm sharing a card I made for my future grandson - my son Mark is engaged to Anna who has 2 young boys -Ethan - who just turned 9, and James who is 5. So the card I made is for Ethan. Anna and Mark had a party for him yesterday and we went up to the big city (London) to join in the fun.
I usually don't make kids cards - one - because I don't have anyone young to make them for, and second- because I don't usually get asked for kids cards - so with saying that I have very limited 'young boys' images/stamps. So I racked my brain all this week trying to dig through my stamps to see what might work - everything seemed to old for a 9 yr old, and then I came across my gorgeous grunge set from SU- perfect!
This is how it turned out:
I started by using the SU gorgeous grunge set and stamped away using pumpkin pie, bermuda bay, and black.
I used PTI - birthday die and cut 2 from black card stock. I glued them together to give it a bit more thickness and stability,and was just going to glue to the front of the card, but then decided to inlay it into the card. So I cut the birthday once again out of the front of my card. I glued the black birthday sentiment into the negative portion of the card. I love the look by doing this - so cool. I then stamped 'it's your' in black versafine.
Once everything was put together, I needed something on the top portion of the card since it looked bare - so dug out my star dies and cut up a couple different sizes and ended up with the size above. I finished it off with a number '9' cut from my quickutz die set (I have not used this set in about 10 yrs!) I completely forgot I had this set.
I'm really pleased on how this turned out, but I think I need to look for a couple of younger boy images so I will have these on hand for future.
Thanks for your visit today. Enjoy the rest of your day,
