I would like to extend a warm welcome to Monika Reeck who blogs at
Creative With Monika who is my latest follower.
This card has not photographed well - despite the fact I tried on two different occasions - the orange is a lovely clear, bright colour IRL- not the muddy look it has here!!
The card is intended for a 12 yr old boy - to be given from his grandmother, and I felt when making it that he needed encouragement.
The stamps I used were an older set of Kaisercraft stamps that I bought over 12 months ago (on special), and were very much in the category of NBUS!!
I embossed the number panel in gold on the base of green cardstock.
The sentiments were stamped in Peeled Paint DI - I was very glad to be using the MISTI as I had to stamp them several times to get a good impression, and stop the orange showing through and making the colour of the images look really 'yuk'!
The finishing touches were the gold coloured thread and the buttons
- what 12 year old boy would want (or excuse) bling on his card?? -
but I really wanted something more than just the stamping on this card.
