This is a mega quick post this morning as I'm getting ready to go off to a friend's party with the kids. I just wanted to show you a card I made for a friend's little boy, along with matching gift wrap and tag. I've used one of the Monster stamps from Squiggle Stamps - there are three in the range and they're very funky....... great for those little boy cards we all have to make from time to time (well at least they're easier than the ones we make for the men)! Apologies for the quality of this photo but I took it in a rush last week before giving the pressie and card to the little boy.
I simply took a large sheet of green paper for the wrap and stamped the image randomly in blue ink. Both the image on the tag and the images on the card have been paper pieced in Basic Grey Offbeat and Cupcake papers and I added some Dymo sentiments and punched stars for embellies. The brads and ricrac ribbon strip are from my stash. As I've distressed the edges of my papers I can enter the card into this week's A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge which funnily enough is distressing.
Sorry to rush off but I'm always late for everything so I'm aiming to be good for once this morning!!
Happy Sunday to all!
I'll be back in the morning to announce the winner of my Bank Holiday candy!!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
