Hi everyone, I thought I would just write-up how I made this card today.
I went into my left over card and paper box for the inspiration for this project , and made a card for a teenage boy. (my neighbour’s son has a birthday coming up) It’s very square with block colours.
The finished card measures 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches (14 x 14 cm)
Base of card
I used Basic Black card stock, measuring 11 x 5-1/2 inches (28 x 14 cm). scored on the long side at 5-1/2 inches (14 cm)
Front of card
I have used a piece of 3-3/4 x 3-3/4 inch (9.5 x 9.5 cm) Lemon Lime Twist card stock and on the top of that I placed a 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 inch (9 x 9 cm) Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (DSP) , (this DSP has the colours of the card stock used in it).
Next to it is a strip of 3-1/2 x 3/4 inch (9 x 2 cm) Soft Sky card stock.
At the bottom of the card I used another strip of Lemon Lime Twist card stock measuring 5-1/4 x 1 inch (13.3 x 2.5 cm).
The smaller square that sits on the top is a piece of 3-1/4 x 3-1/4 inch (8.3 x 8.3 cm) Tranquil Tide card stock layered with a 3 x 3 inch (7.5 x 7.5 cm) of the same DSP, as the first square, but using the opposite side.
Watercolor Words is well-loved stamp set and I have used it a lot in the past. I have dusted it off, to use for this card. The font used for sentiments has a great flow and presence about it.
Inside the card
I have layered a piece of 4-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch (11.4 x 11.4 cm) Lemon Lime Twist card stock with a 4-3/8 x 4 x 3/8 inch (11 x 11 cm) piece of the DSP. Stamped with the happy birthday sentiment from the same stamp set.
I know when making a card for teenagers, ideas of what to do can be difficult.
I hope this have given you some inspiration.
