Cupcake craft challenge #169–DT card


Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hi everyone, as promised I’m back again with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  This week it is my turn to set the theme and as it’s my son’s 15th birthday next week I decided to get ahead and therefore I chose “card for a teenage boy”.  Now I know you’re all going to groan but unfortunately these cards do need to be made from time to time lol!  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 169 - teenage boys

CCC challenge 169 - teenage boys (close up)

I used an image from Mo’s digital pencil called ‘gamer’ and coloured him with promarkers and flex markers.  This is how you will find my son most days after school, playing on his x-box or on the computer!!  The papers are from a really old pack by dovecraft called ‘masculine’ and I used my last sheet of elzybells kraft cardstock!!  I kept the embellishments fairly simple, as like most men my son isn’t that fussy with his cards, I die cut some stars and wrapped some twine around them, a few pearls and that was it.  The twine is actually green so I don’t know why it looks yellow in the pics (user error again I suppose lol!)  My card is A5 in size.

Our sponsor this week is Lili of the Valley and one lucky winner will receive a £10.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store.

Fab male card Denise, love the image! Thanks for the challenge, I like to make male cards, I struggle with embellies so the clean look comes easier :)
