Just Sayin'

Welcome once again - I am glad you have made time to visit.

I recently made a card for a four year old boy - he is a bright young man who is very active, so with this in mind I made this card.

I used The Crafts Meow set Just Sayin' to make the center panel.

I stamped the word bubble first, added the greeting and embossed it in copper, then masked it off and created the background with the abc stamp in the set, using further masking and stamping off to vary the placement and colour intensity.  As I did not have any matching cardstock, I swiped the ink pad on the edges of the layer to have a matching border to the panel.

The little skate boarder is a digi image from The Digi Garden - he was coloured with chalks and mounted on foam dots to add dimension.
The final detail was to sponge the edges of the card with the ink used on the feature panel.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for calling in - may your day be blessed.

Hi Maxine!! What a CUTE card--I recognized the style of this cute li'l boy digi right away *Ü* This 4 yr. old will love it too. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog too!! I'm sorry it's been so long since I've visited. Blog surfing/posting and even card making has taken a back seat for me these past few weeks. Busy busy bee! :) Anyways... hope you're having a wonderful summer so far and staying COOL in this heat! It's already 95 here in c. Oregon at 10 a.m.!!
