I’m ahead of the game this year! I have my sons birthday card done and his birthday isn’t until the end of August! Teenage boys must be the hardest age group to make cards for, anyone else agree?!
This card was inspired from the scraps on my desk! That makes it even better. I love it when I can use random pieces that I have laying around to create something useful. I love the distressed, grungy look of the card and it seriously only took me about 10 minutes to make!
I’ve included the supply list at the bottom of this post and thought I’d give you step-by-step instructions on how to create this one in case you have some teenage boys to give cards too. Well actually this card will work for grown men and teenage girls as well!!
- Emboss the peacock card stock using the brick & mortar folder.
- Use your peacock ink pad and rub it gently across the embossed card stock and around the edges.
- Stamp ‘oh snap’ a couple times on the embossed cardstock.
- Use your paper snips to distress the edges of the embossed cardstock. Attach that to the card front.
- Stamp the camera using old olive ink onto a piece of whisper white cardstock and fussy cut.
- Cut the edge of the flax ribbon off so that you can separate the fibers.
- Add a bit of snail behind where you’ll place your camera and use three of the strands of fiber to form circles of twine.
- Add the camera using dimensionals.
- Stamp ‘oh snap’ using pretty peacock ink onto the scrap of whisper white and punch it out using the 1” circle punch.
- Distress the edges of both the white and olive circles, layer them as shown and add them to the card front.
- Stamp ‘the focus is all on you’ and ‘it’s your day’ onto the white layer for the inside of the card.
Have a creative day!
