Computer Fun! Sneak Peek

Challenges

Sunday Sketch & Stamp (13) - Sketch

Creative Card Crew (33) - Babies & Children

Doodle Palace - Non Sporty 11 - 16 yr old Boy

This is my first attempt at an easel card and I was quite suprised how easy they are to make. Apologies for the poor picture, it was taken with my camera late last night and I will be the first to admit that I am rubbish at taking close-up photos.

I have used another of the 'Boy' stamps from the November Release from Lili Of The Valley. This one is called 'Computer Fun' and the stamps will be launched at the NEC, Birmingham 5th-6th November and available to buy online from 11th November.

I started by covering the base card with the birthday text paper then cut and rounded a strip of black card and placed it in the middle following the great sketch. I then coloured the image with pencils and a silver pen and layered it with Nesties before placing over the strip. I then printed the 'title', layered it and attached with foam pads. I then covered the inside with plain paper after punching a scalloped edge along one side (I have kept it plain so that it can be written on). The sentiment was stamped and layered in the same way and attached with foam pads. Finally I added a few buttons to finish it. I think this would make a great card for a non sporty boy, what do you think?
