I love this card because:
I've been wanting to make a card that has some connection with music for ages. on which I could put the phrase, 'You rock!'
I've used a digital image as I had exactly one day to make this card to take it away with me and give it to my youngest son for his birthday on Saturday.
I have wanted to use this shape for a card for ages but wasn't sure how to go about it.
I am delighted with this because:
it's for my youngest son who is now 20, but who loves his guitar and playing on Guitar Hero, so this is perfect for him.
I worked out how to do the fold and made sure it fitted in the envelope! I kept thinking I was making an easel card, which of course, it isn't, but I got there in the end.
I'm not keen on digital stamps, as to me it defeats the whole idea of stamping and colouring. However, I had a day to make this, as I said, and I'd like to say a massive thankyou to Squigglefly, whose image this is. I can also see the advantage of printing this image out any size you like, as I don't have loads of Nestibilities to cut things out with, so being able to shrink it down is a real bonus. I loved colouring the boys hair in, as my son is blond, even though his hair is short.
I love the way the papers all went together and contributed to the theme.
In short, it was a delight to make, and I will definitely be using this digi image and the card style again.
Thanks for popping by to take a look today. Your comments are really appreciated.
