Male Teen Birthday Card
It's time for me to get cracking on cards needed in the next few weeks and here is the first. A birthday card for a male teen - a theme that I have difficulty with.
I created a background using three shades of Distress Oxides (Tumbled Glass, Spiced Marmalade and Blueprint Sketch). Once dry, I stamped circles using a Visible Image stamp from their "Shape It Up" set.
Using a stamp from a Stampin' Up set called "Epic Celebrations" I stamped the trainer image in black Versafine ink. I then stamped the same image on a piece of white card.
I coloured the shoe laces on both images of the trainers, then cut the shoe shape from the white card (but not the dangling laces). I ran a black pen around the edge of the shoe image then stuck it to the card base using foam pads to elevate the trainers.
I finished by mounting onto black card and trimming to size. To add a little more interest, I used a silver glitter Signo pen to add dots across the surface of the card - these are not really picked up very well in the photograph.
