My Rock Star
My grandson Ethan performed in his local inter-school talent quest last week. The talent quest is run by the Chaplains at the local primary and high schools to help keep them funded. I will have a Nanny brag and say that he is a very talented singer and guitar player. He performed very well, as did everyone else. It is really amazing how self assured young people are today. I am sure that I could never have stood up and performed in front of strangers or even friends for that matter, especially at age 10.
Anyway I had to make him a card to let him know how proud his Pop and I are. I used one of the Seasonal Decorative Masks to sponge Early Expresso ink onto Crumb Cake card. I attached this to Very Vanilla card which I embossed using the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. I wrapped the top of the Crumb Cake card with Delightful Dijon 5/8″ Mini Striped ribbon and attached the whole panel to scored and folded Early Expresso card. I stamped the guitar image from the Country Livin’ Stamp set onto Crumb Cake card using Stazon Jet Black ink and used a Blender Pen and Early Espresso ink to add some detail to the image. I cut the image out and attached it to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the greeting using the Labeler Alphabet onto scrap Very Vanilla card using Early Espresso ink. I cut out the words and attached them to the card front using dimensionals.
Inside the card I attached a strip of the Crumb Cake card which had been sponged using the same Seasonal Decorative Mask and Early Espresso ink to the bottom of Very Vanilla card. I wrapped the top of the Crumb Cake card with Delightful Dijon 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon and attached the whole panel to the inside of the card.
I love this card and I know that Ethan did too. What do you think? Something you might like to try? I hope I have inspired you to try masking on your next card.
Bye for now,
