Rev Up the Fun for the Paper Craft Crew

Welcome everyone to another warm Wednesday! 27 degrees and a little muggy in Melbourne today - there is rain in the air at last!! So just before I take Sally my loving labrador out for a walk I have a fun card to show you for the sketch at the Paper Craft Crew this week.

I always seem to be need of masculine cards so I decided to bring out my "go to" set for males at the moment : Rev Up The Fun :-)

For the base of the card I used some Coastal Cabana card stock and decided to emboss part of the front of the card with the Stripes EF before adding some of the fun Epic Day DSP. The main panel is stamped with some Gorgeous Grunge - doesn't that look like a mud splatter ?? And then stamped the bike image with black Stazon and coloured with a marker before cutting out and adding with some dimensionals.

Now for the fun bits and pieces! Unfortunatley, SU no longer sells cork sheets. However, I managed to find some at my local craft store and am so happy about that as it is so "in" right now :-) AND i found that it is thin enough to use with our Framelits so I first stamped the greeting in Black Stazon and cut it out with the Word Bubble Framelits and then I used my circle framelits for the little "tyres" under the centre panel.

The black circles are actually Basic Rhinestones that I coloured with a Sharpie marker too :-) And the arrows come from the wonderful Label Thinlit card Framelit pack and just add to the teenager flavour here.

    1. Thank you so very much Katerina! Yes it's great to find the framelits cut cork too - opens up a whole new world lol!

  3. I think you were right. This sketch really does make for a great masculine card. I liked all the elements and especially the cork.
