  • LOTV- scooter boy stamp
  • We R memory keepers- anthologie 6 x 6 paper pad
  • Lawn fawn custom craft dies- large dotted square & large dotted rectangle stackables

  • Neenah classic crest card stock 
  • Red card stock 
  • 6” square cardblank

I was asked to make a great grandson card for a little boy turning 6. I created a custom sentiment on the computer to fit inside the rectangle die, printed it onto Neenah card stock and cut it out. For the image I stamped, die cut and coloured the scooter boy. I covered the cardblank with the patterned paper and die cut a panel of a coordinating red card. To complete the card, I simply arranged the pieces onto the cardblank, overlapping each other, with just the sentiment raised on foam pads for a bit of dimension.

  • Wink of Stella ‘clear’ sparkle brush marker
  • Tim holtz ‘dusty concord’ distress ink pad
  • Pattern Paper (from craftwork cards, don’t know the name)
To make this card I simply die cut my frame from copic friendly cardstock. I used the centre to stamp and colour my image, then cut it out using the matching die. 
I cut out a piece of pattern paper, which had the sentiment printed on. I inked my card blank with the purple ink then glue the paper to the centre. I added the white frame. I glued the image in place using foam for dimension. Final touch was a bit of sparkle to the wings.
