Good morning, a new theme starts today at Allsorts challenge and it's my turn to host. Hope to see you joining in for a chance to win a wonderful prize by Craft Stash, a beautiful Woodware stamp set.
For this week I selected the theme of "For Kids or Teens" - including young adults still in their teen years.. This can be any type of card for any occasion, gift, tag, decorated bag, etc.

I layered the big star over a die cut circle and white circle frame, then added the small stars all around with foam tape to make them pop up. The no. 18 is from a chipboard Alphabet and Number set. I found mine at Michaels, but can't seem to find it online. There may be more options on Amazon. My sticker set is made of kraft chipboard and I ran my Wink of Stella glitter brush over the numbers for a little sparkle. The small stars were die cut from brushed gold paper that was part of a Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit - I don't remember which one, but also available in single sheets at Scrapbook.com.
The only stamping I have done here is the sentiment, which came from this Penny Black clear set. I really like this simple font as I think it's fitting for a more masculine card. For an extra little detail I used a stapler on two of the corners.
And below is a photo of the card recipient and the maker :-)

Hmmm, what a brilliant idea to cut the paper down to smaller size. I have to think about that some more :)ReplyDelete

It's a great design for a young man. Good idea to cut the papers down - I might try that too. Although for me having anything in sight is the best way to get it used lol!ReplyDelete
