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.
