Why I Make Cards…[Whew]
This project was AN EMERGENCY!
We’ve been in the basement for a while due to a tornado warning…one of my favorite reasons to be able to make fun cards…it seems we ALWAYS have a reason to be short “the traditional gift” for the kid’s birthday parties, and Boy Wonder was due at one, pronto!
We’ve had little guests here all day–no way I was getting to the store:
The Hub took over the frying of the sausage and eggs while I ran to the craft room to “work my magic” (oh, how I love it when he talks to me like that).
Font: a superhero font of some kind using SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot plus the Cricut cutter).
I had some cardstock scraps on my desk and cut strips to fit the card.
I used a new Studio G party stamp pack in Nashville ($1 bin at Michaels) for all the stamping on the blue and khaki strips.
I love metal on teen boys cards, so I grabbed a metal black clip from the last bins at a CKC Convention I went to several years ago.
The stamp was mall for inside the card, so I added color blocking. For the blue, I just laid the inkpad down onto the card, then added a black strip. The white pen is my favorite Signo uniball. I actually ordered several overseas from ebay.
So, we all pooled family cash, and Boy Wonder was out the door with a gift…
