Little Boy Blue

I made this card for DD1 to give to her Dad for Father’s Day.She’s 16 and lost interest in making her own cards so now she just comes to me when she needs one.The layout comes from Wynneth who was GDT on last weeks Let’s Get Stamping group at Craftbubble.There was also the twist of ‘Eastern Promise’ :

I printed a piece of vellum with Oriental script from a Crafters Companion CD.I attached to the card with brads.I stamped a character from Banana Frog’s Kaawii Kokeshi set in some Memento inks then coloured his face with Promarkers.I rounded the corners with a punch then inked the edges with matching inks.I matted this onto some Core’dinations So Mod card that I’d used a Matha Stewart Punch Around the Page Quilting set on.I stuck a small piece of Argyle ribbon on the side and added a brad.The sentiment is a lucky coin from the same set.The border was made with the same cardstock and punch set.The white circular thingy is actually a  beer bottle cap that I squished (technical term!) in my Big Shot.I added a stamped flower from the Banana Frog set with a brad in the middle using Glossy Accents.I don’t think DH noticed it was a flower – that was my plan!I stuck it to the card using more Glossy Accents.Nice simple card with added interest.Best way to make boy’s/men’s cards in my opinion.

Here are some other challenges this card is for :

Paperplay – Something old (same as above)

S2G Twisted Thursday – Something  old ( same again)

    What a lovely card you made for you DD. I know what you mean. My DD lost her interest in card making a long time ago when she went 14. So i feel with you. She took one of my cards for him.
    Thanks for playing along at Shelly’s Images TTT

    Very cute cards, both of them, Lisa. My DD (nearly 16) has also lost interest in making cards, gave all her stuff away, but still had to make her Dad’s card – hee hee!!.

    Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay this week.
