Musical Birthday Card

My grandson, Curtis, recently turned 14. He’s not into much – online games (what teenage boy isn’t?), and music.

This card was really an abstract work, and just kind of evolved.

I’ve used two stamp sets to achieve this look:

Guitars – from Inspired by Stamping

Live Life Loud – from Gina K Designs (no longer available)

I started off by stamping “Birthday” using a Fern Gully stamp – it actually says Happy Birthday, but I masked it off. Then, using one of the ‘blotches’ from “Guitars” I stamped downwards with two colours.

I then randomly stamped with Gina K stamps on the right, added the “Happy” cut-out, and lastly, I stamped the guitar in Archival Jet Black directly onto the card.  I also stamped the guitar again, and cut it out after sponging with Vintage Photo distress ink.

Here’s the inside of the card:

As you can see, I carried the theme over to the inside.  The ‘blotches’ were made using the Guitars set again, and the greeting is from Birthday Greetings – Gina K Designs.

That’s it – pretty simple!

Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!

  1. Thanks Vicki. Yes, it was easy. Being a 14 year old boy, I knew this card wouldn’t be something he’d be very interested in. And I was right – it’s sitting in the envelope it came in.

    But I made the effort, and that’s what really matters….

  2. Cheryl, this card turned out so well! I love how you decorated the inside of the card beautifully too! I think he will love it! xx
