Teen Boy Birthday

Hello again,

Today I am sharing a card I made for my neighbours eldest son, who shall we say is a typical teenage boy, grunts for answers, sleeps all he can etc. I often see him coming home from work with his headphones on so I used my new CCD headphone set and also a set of stamps from China.

I used a sanding block to distress the black cardboard, then having decided where I wanted the main panel to go I worked my way around the card stamping various splatter stamps in Versamark ink and heat embossing in clear ink to give some extra interest to a fairly plain card. I used my rectangle dies to create the frame and raided my scrap box to die-cut and fill in the pieces in the headphones. The sentiment is a combination of a CCD and MFT stamp set, I finished off my card with some paper stars cut with Marianne Design Die Star Punch.

Here is my card:-
