Those of you who know me well, know I'm a rock and roll kind of girl! And, my kids are rock and roll kids too! When we go places, we rock out in the van and have a blast. So, when I saw the Extreme Guitar stamp in the catalogue I knew it would end up in my collection. And, it did just recently when I got it FREE with Sale-A-Bration rewards.
My oldest son is turning 8 next week and his party is on Saturday. He's having a small, out of the house party since Kevin will be just home from surgery, but I'm sure he will have a blast with his friends. He's kind of at that age where most of my stamps are a bit too babyish or little kidish for his tastes. So, here's what I came up with for his inviataions...
I kept it super simple becuase, well, I'm a busy girl! I chose Creamy Caramel and Basic Black as the colors. They're so striking together, don't you think? The card itself measures 3x6 and the fold is along the top. I did the Direct-To-Paper technique around the edges of the card with my ink pad. The rock star is stamped with Basic Black craft ink and embossed. And it's finished off by stamping a "You're Invited" along the bottom with black ink. I love the way the invitations turned out and Taylor was suitable impressed!
This card is so versatile! I can see myself using it again in the future for birthday cards. You could also make a little pocket inside and have it hold concert tickets for someone.
That's all for today!
