A Rockin' Birthday!

Tuesday, 5 April 2011

I always find men’s cards a pain in the backside to come up with! And as it was my brother’s birthday recently, I had a pain in the backside!! Lol

So imagine my joy when I saw the fantastic selection of stamps in the “Rock Squad” category on Kenny K Downloads?! Because my brother is a bit of a rocker ye see!!

So here’s the card I made for him...


How brilliant is that image! Stephen Tyler eat your heart out!! Coloured with my copics.


The paper (a single sheet I bought in some craft shop or other is by Glitz it now) is one I’ve had for an age, with making a card for him in mind with it, but not having the right image until now. I also embossed a piece of black card with a cuttlebug embossing folder. I added a couple of gromlets with my crop-a-dile (although I must admit that I’m not entirely sure what the correct purpose of a gromlet is! Lol) and some lengths of a fairly heavy chain, which I added some relatively rocky charms to.


The inside is fairly simple (well it is a male card!) with the sentiments from Kraftin’ Kimmie


This card fits the following challenges:

Cards for Men; Embossing

Copic Creations; Your favourite Copic technique – mine is just using them! Lol

Double Dutch; Something old (my paper), something new (the image), something borrowed (I “borrowed” the star paperclip from my siser!) and something blue (the card base)

My Partner in Crafting Crime; Layer it up

Totally Papercrafts challenge; One for the Boys

Thanks for looking!
