My nephew recently turned 17. I'd had a dream about the card I made for him, so went to work to make it a reality. I think it has turned out a little 'dark', but Ethan (my 13-yr-old) said dark is good, because it's "more masculine". Bless him!
I used the fab-o Hexagon Hive thinlits die with Soho Subway Designer Series Paper. I overlaid that on some Early Espresso card that had been stamped with a couple of Gorgeous Grunge stamps. After adding washi tape to the bottom strip of Summer Starfruit card, I decided it looked a bit like a road sign .... but left it 'as is' anyway! Here's my creation:
Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Morning Post Numbers, Sketched Birthday, Simply Stars
Card: Basic Gray, Early Espresso, Summer Starfruit, Naturals Ivory
DSP: Soho Subway Designer Series Paper, Summer Starfruit Patterns Designer Series Paper
Ink: Basic Gray, Early Espresso and Summber Starfruit stampin' pads
Other: Hexagon Hive thinlits die, Banners Framelits ,Bitty Banners Framelits, Finishing Touches edgelits, Epic Day This & That washi tape, paper snips, sponge dauber, Hung Up cute clip, Basic Gray stitched grosgrain ribbon
