Wednesday is back and that means it's time for a new Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. This week Gail is hosting our Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge.
Have you ever had one of those times when you were really glad when you finally managed to put a card together? My crafting over the past couple of days has been a study in frustration. After many false starts, here is the card I made for my grandson's birthday. He'll be thirteen in a couple of weeks and all of these images remind me of him.
The card base is Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions) and I attached a piece of patterned paper to it but I can't remember from which paper pad as I've had it for a while. On top of that I added a layer of Sugar Cube cardstock. The images and sentiment are stamped from the Epic Celebrations (Stampin' Up!) stamp set using Bermuda Bay ink. I fussy cut the sneakers, guitar and headset and attached them with Scotch Foam Tape. The sentiment circle was cut from Sugar Cube cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (Stampin' Up!). I attached the stitched circle to a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and fussy cut around it to give just a hint of the color. Using the next largest circle die would have made it too big and I didn't want a large border of color. I think he is going to like it!
