One For The Boys
Here is this week’s entry made for the Cd Sunday Challenge and the theme is one for the boys – I think my card fits the title well
The card is an easel card and with a super fast red sports car on the front it’s perfect for “boys” of all ages!
I used a kit that was purchased from Craftsuprint, it came with the main card front and a page of decoupage, the kit was designed by John Methven.
Rather than do a straightforward card I opted for an easel card.
To start with I cut out the main image and decoupage, made up the design using small sticky pads then matted it onto a piece of red mirri card which I rounded the corners using my corner chomper.
The backing papers – one is behind the main image panel and the other is on the base of the easel came from a lovely cd I have used a lot – and actually won on the CD Sunday Challenge, it’s called Men in Mind by LexCraft.
The card is an 8x8 card so ideal for showing off the shiny red car.
So for the base of the card I used a fab paper that has a chequered flag design, I stuck it to the card then cut a length of black card, added thick foam tape from a roll and placed where it would best work for the stopper.
A Martha Stewart deep border punch was used with red mirri card to create an unusual border that again fitted with the card well
And lastly I got the chance to use some brilliant sentiments which I believe were from Craftwork Cards – they spell out Happy Birthday but look like registration plates as they have numbers here and there instead of letters.
I do hope you like this card, I enjoyed making it and fingers crossed it will sell too
Take care and thanks for popping in
