Dude birthday card

As a follow up to the last post, I had kind ‘thanks but no thanks’ reply from Kaisercraft – perhaps i will try again next year. It will be interesting to watch this years designers, and perhaps learn from them.

Over the last couple of days I have had a real brain block each time I have sat at my desk. I have lots of ideas, that all seem to be merging into one at the moment and when I sit down I have no idea where to start, and has resulted in an incredibly messy room.

This morning I pulled myself together, cleared up, turned on the Imagine and was determined to make a card with the cartridge I have treated myself to – JT.

Here is the result;

Cricut Imagine Cartridge – JT
Cricut Wild Card Cartridge (to cut card blank)
Printable Acetate
Kaisercraft clear stamps – music, grid & birthday wishes
Ranger Alcohol Inks – slate, sail boat blue, terracotta & silver mixative
Distress Ink – black soot & faded jeans
I was really pleased with outcome. The shield in the background is comprised of 4 layers, but layered with double sided flat tape, just to take the flatness from the image. The shield was printed and cut on printable acetate, adding a shiny element to the card, along with the silver mixative in the background.
Makes a good card for an 11 year old boy, who I had in mind for this.
