This week's Make-It-Monday challenge is brought to us by Ashley. She has shown us a clever way to make our solid surfaced stamps more versatile by achieving a subtle texture. If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find out all about it here.
This week I had another birthday card to make. This time, for one of my nephews. I'm generally at a bit of a loss when making boy cards, let alone tweenage boy cards. But, here is what I managed to come up with:
I used Ashley's swipe technique on a few of the triangles, but it is best seen on the blue triangles. I thought the result was really fabulous and gave a bit of a cool/hip factor to this tweenage card. Ashley's technique is super simple and I am really happy to have it in my crafting arsenal. Thanks, Ashley!
I turned this project into another zipper-hidden cash gift-hiding card. I really love the PTI zipper border die for this purpose!
And lastly, a pic of the decorated inside:
All supplies are from PTI.
Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
