Cool Brittania??21st Birthday Card For An Awkward Male!!!

Good morning folks, it's time for another challenge over at Delicious Doodles and this week we're sponsored by our very own Pascale at GR8 Crafts 4U. The theme this week is Get Your Bling On, so we want to see your blingtastic creations!

I needed to make a 21st birthday card for my nephew and boy did I sweat over this card! He's not into drinking, cars or loose women!!! So with that in mind I started to panic! I trawled the Delicious Doodles Store for a suitable image and eventually stumbled upon Electric Guitar :D


Now this card is a little different for me as it has almost completely been created using my graphics programme which seriously made for a quick and easy make! No die cutting, no colouring and if I hadn't decided to decoupage the guitar there would have been no cutting or gluing either!!! I simply created the card on screen, printed it out (with an extra guitar), cut it to size, inked the edges with Distress Inks, mounted it on a card blank, decoupaged the guitar and then added some bling (although I've since found out that I could even have done that in the graphics programme).

All I have to do now is hope that my nephew likes the card!

Thanks for stopping by

  3. Liking the distressed look and the decoupaged guitar was inspired, love that for added dimension. You also can't beat real bling! x
