Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and that the weather is being kind. We've had some lovely weather here in Adelaide lately and I for one hope it will continue.
It's been a little while since I posted here, and I won't bore you with the reasons why, but I'm back and hope to post a bit more regularly from now on.
So, to business.
My youngest Grandson celebrated his 17th Birthday yesterday (where has the time gone?????) and this is the card I made for him. You can obviously guess that he is quite fond of the colour purple.
Yes, I'm afraid it is another Centre Step Card. Actually it is another Cross Over Centre Step Card. I really am fond of this shape, so there probably will be more of these to come. The papers I've used are from Kaisercraft's Check In and Glitz's French Kiss. A bit of a mix but I feel it worked quite well. The panels on the side were created with an EK Success Border punch.
I love that I can make some tags to go with this card and it's fun looking for different labels and quotes to add to them.
On the centre panel I've added some Washi Tape some builder's tape and also a piece of plastic gutter guard as well as a Tim Holtz Ticket and Dominoes from Kaisercraft's Art of Life Collection. The significance of the dominoes is that they add up to 17 (my Grandson's age). The arrow chippie is one of the gorgeous pieces that came in my win from Scrapmatts. Coloured it with purple Acrylic Paint and some Bronze Versa Color and then clear embossed it. The clock was cut from black cardstock with my Silhouette and lightly brushed with Versa Color Bronze.
The Chipboard Ruler is from Prima and the label is also from KC's Art of Life.
Just a close-up of the tags and more labels from KC. The backs of the tags were left plain.
This is how the card looks without the tags ...
... and a closie of the layers.
All done!!! I love working on these cards, they really stretch the creative thinking because there is quite a bit to decorate. Hope you like it.
Thank you so much for your visit and I would love it if you could leave a little message and tell me what you think. I read each and every one and love them all.
Take care and God Bless.
