Birthday card....






I made this card for my son (a drummer) who will be 19 pretty soon. The stamp is Inkadinkado and sentiment stamp is a Mike's $ stamp.

I didn't want to make it too foofoo so I kept it pretty simple. I used my CTMH tool on the edges to distress them. I used sticky stitches (I think they're made by Fiskars). SU cs used but I can't remember the names. I ended up using Ancient Page Lapis Blue instead of my SU Night of Navy because they were new clear stamps and I needed something to stick. I used Angel Wings Shimmerz to color in the white parts of the drums. It's so not my style but I think he'll like it.

Yes I agree boys (oops should I say Young Men) don't like foo foo
so wise move to make it more manly.

I really like this card. It definitly has a guy feel to it. My son would like a card like this. I have the hardest time with this age group for male cards.
