Well what an absolutely gorgeously sunny day today. That's what summer should be like. It's my youngest's birthday today. Jordan is going to be fourteen close to midnight. He's fast changing from my 'baby' into a young man. Mind you, his favourite pastime, besides his BMX bike, is playing Band Hero on the Wii, so he's not quite into the man brigade yet.....or is he. lol xx
Anyway, I wanted to capture something that relates to him, and I think this card is perfect.
I wanted a really grungy, rock look, and I think I've achieved it. All the cardstock is from Stampin' Up!...I distressed the edges of the cardstock. and used lots of CloseTo Cocoa ink to give that grungy look. I embossed the guitar with moonglow embossing powder so it looks all glossy just like jordan's real guitar. Used embossing folders for the punched out stars, just to give interest, along with some rivets from Stampin' Up!
There's quite alot going on in this card, and I think it maybe looks better in 'real life'. But I hope you get a good impression of it anyway. It's hard doing teenage boys cards, and not making them too cute or babyish. Jordan liked the card anyway, so that's all that matters. Thanks you for taking the time to look.
My next task is to make a card for the flowers I've chosen for my brother-in-laws funeral this Friday. He was only 59 years old. Rest In Peace Brian, you will be sadly missed.
