Good morning everyone! It's time to get busy with another great challenge from Create with Connie and Mary! This week they are challenging us with a fantastic sketch! Take a look:
Isn't it great?! So many possibilities but here is what I came up with:
Since my husband's birthday is coming up, I realized that I really don't make many masculine cards. And my son is getting older (he is too old for the cutesy look, anyway), so I thought I would go in a different direction than flowers and bows. I really do like the way it turned out, too! I started out with a card base of Crumb Cake. On that I used a stamp from the Extreme Elements set and stamped it in Crumb Cake and then sponged around the card with Crumb Cake ink. For the circles I took a piece of Crumb Cake and ran it through the Big Shot using my 3" circle die and to make the Basic Black circle I used my circle scissors plus. I stamped on the Crumb Cake circle with the Extreme Elements set in Crumb Cake ink and then sponged with Crumb Cake. Then I stamped my birthday greeting from Happiest Birthday Wishes in black StazOn. This circle was then glued to the black one. Now you really can't tell from the photo, but I took my piercing tool and pierced holes along the edge of the Basic Black circle and then used my distressing tool and distressed the edges. Before the circles were glued to the card I added two black brads. To the top of the card I glued a strip of designer paper from the Neutrals paper stack. Then I took a strip of Basic Black card stock and ran it through the Big Shot using the Tasteful Trim die and glued that right on the edge of the designer paper. The last thing I did was to stamp the ATV from the Need for Speed stamp set on Crumb Cake card stock in black StazOn. I did add some highlights with the Crumb Cake marker. This is popped up on the card!
Be sure to check out the Create with Connie and Mary website to see more great inspiration! Then go and create your own project using the sketch provided and upload it to their website so that we can all see! I do love to see what you come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
