Rockin Birthday

Inspiration

Good morning, Monday. I enjoyed a long weekend and got the opportunity to make an extra card or two. This is my first time to enter the Mo's DP2 Challenge - this week it's anything goes, with an optional sketch, as long as you use one of Mo's images. I used the sketch, and picked the Air Guitar image for a birthday boy who loves music.

Instructions

BASE CARD and MAT

Cut a piece of blue card stock measuring 6" x 12", score at 6", and fold. Cut a piece of music-patterned paper measuring 5 7/8" x 5 7/8", and mount on the front of the card. In the center of the card, mount another mat made of black pin-striped paper, measuring 4 3/4" x 4 7/8".

Use the Music M-Bossabilities folder to emboss white card stock. From this embossed stock, cut a strip measuring 1 3/4" x 5 7/8". Cut a strip of blue card stock measuring 1 7/8" x 5 7/8". Mount the embossed white strip onto the blue strip, and mount them onto the right side of the front of the card.

IMAGE

Print the image on white card stock, then cut out to measure 3 7/8" x 4 1/8". Cut a blue mat for the image, measuring 4 1/8" x 4 1/4".

Color the image with COPIC markers. I used these colors:

  • HAIR: E53, E57
  • SKIN: E000, E00, E11, R20
  • MOUTH: R21, R22, R24
  • T-SHIRT: Y32, Y35, Y38
  • JEANS: B21, B24, B29
  • SHOES: W0, C3, C7, 100

Mount the image onto the mat.

FINAL STEPS

Wrap twine around the card front 3 times, and tie with a bow. Hold the bow in place with a glue dot. Mount the image over the twine on the card front.

Finally, use the music die to cut two diecuts from black card stock. Clip one set across the top bar to create a single note. Glue the notes to the card front.

Thanks for stopping by!
