I'm here today to share a card I made suitable for a teenager using the fabulous Maja Design Denim & Friends collection........I love love LOVE this collection, its perfect for those hard male cards & just as perfect for the females. What more could we ask for.....well the perfect dies to go with them of course are Gummiapan.
I made the card base from Maja Design Shades Of Denim, Light Blue. These co-ordinated sheets are fabulous & each side is a slightly different shade, I love the quality of Maja Design.
I used Maja Design Denim & Friends 6x6 pad for the card & highlighted the graphic on the paper which says 'YOU'RE A STAR' I underlined it & added stars that were cut out from using the Integrated Stars die by Gummiapan.
I also added a piece of fine corrugated cardboard painted it with white gesso to give the card extra texture.
I cut the wording 'AWSOME' from the bottom of one of the 12x12 sheets & distressed it a little.
I also cut out Happy Birthday using a Gummiapn text die, I cut Happy out using the Maja Design Monochrome Light Blue sheet & Birthday I cut out using the Maja Design Monochrome Aquamarine sheet....this shade matches the shoes on the image.
I cut out a few pieces with white cardstock first then glued them altogether with the coloured sheet on top.....this makes them thicker & gives an appearance of chipboard.
To glue them together I use a spray adhesive, its less messy & fiddly.
The larger image of the skateboard came from the Maja Design Denim & Friends 12x12 Snapshot sheet & the smaller one came with the 6x6 pad.......I thought it would add interest there being 2 photo's the same but of different sizing.
I cut the integrated stars out using white cardstock & Maja Design Monochrome Aquamarine cardstock.
I kept a couple of the stars inside the cutout.
As always I decorated inside to compliment the front & each sheet was machine stitched.
The rectangle under the main image I cut with Gummiapan Rectangle die & cut it from Maja Design Monochrome Aquamarine.
I used some stars that were cut out from the Integrated Stars die to add here & there, I love that some of them are not perfect star shapes which adds more interest & uniqueness........uniqueness is definitely good for a teenager.
Thanks so much for stopping by we all really appreciate it.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
