Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Cards For Guys challenge! My husband happens to have a birthday this month so this was the perfect opportunity to create a card for my favorite gaming nerd! 😉
To start I stamped the images from Screen Time and Christmas Dreams with Versafine and colored them with Copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies. We have a tortoiseshell cat and two Shelties and I tried my hardest to color the animals similar to our pets. In the future I’ll have to remember to pick boring colored pets because merles and torties are HARD to color! Ha! I also stamped the sentiment from Screen Time onto black cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder before trimming it down to a thin label.
Next I created my husband’s very 90s childhood bedroom with some plaid and woodgrain patterned paper using Knock on Wood and Perfectly Plaid Chill! I die-cut them with a Stitched Rectangle die and adhered them to a card base to create the room. Then I simply layered the images with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape for a little dimension. I kept it simple (and non-sparkly) and just finished the card with a few white gel pen accents!
And that’s it! You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!
