A friend of mine asked if I could make a card for her son's 30th birthday. Her son plays the guitar and is an amateur bike rider, so I used my silhouette to cut out a guitar shape from this bike patterned paper. I then used the negative as the basis for a shaker card.
I bought some new die sets at the recent Luxembourg Expo Creative, so I used them here to spell out his name and age from red card stock, and added glossy accents for impact. The dies are from a Dutch company called Craft Emotions, and I bought the Uppercase Alpha, Lowercase Alpha and Numbers (and lots of others besides). So many times I have wanted to add names or numbers to bunting and the characters have hung over the edges.
The computer generated sentiment on the inside reads and I used this Frantic Stamper Bicycle to reinforce it.
Challenge #53 at the Male Room has the Challenge numbers so I'll be entering there
This is the Cue card for CASology Week 234 so I'll be entering there. I wish I was still 30 !!!
My favourite challenge this week though, has to be Challenge #CFC166 at CAS-ual Fridays. Not only does my card feature a guitar, it's a percussion instrument as well thanks to all those little beads inside!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you were inspired. Thanks especially if you take the time to leave a comment, not only do they make my day, but they allow me to return the favour!!!
