I was asked to make this card for a friends 10yr old Grandson who likes music and sport. I find children’s cards hard as the commercial world has taken over their life in some instances. Making cards they can relate too can be tricky. The Minions punched art have been a bit of a life saver in the past but this time I turned to MDS (My digital Studio a Stampin’ Up! Software Product) As I knew I had some graphics of sport in action there, and this is the result.
My Digital Studio can be downloaded for a free 30 day trial. It is very user friendly and comes with lots of pre selected images, backgrounds, papers, punches and every thing you need to start creating straight away. You can be your own designer with My Digital Studio. Designing cards, photo books, project life (more about that in another blog) and more. We’ve got you covered for all of life’s events with intuitive software and digital content right at your fingertips. Try it and see.
The Stamp brush sets (just like a stamp only digital), that I used for the boys are:
- Extreme Skateboard
- Extreme Guitar
- Extreme Surfboard
- Game Day Soccer
Athletic Department for the words as well as Delight in the Day Designer Series. The balls were from Great Sport and the HAPPY BIRTHDAY in the Rockwell Extra Bold size 22 Text. I over laid it all with Vintage Overlays Texture that had been colored randomly with Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler.
I pooped the balls and Happy Birthday up on dimensionals for a bit of interest. Created this verse for inside the card. This front was printed on Whisper White, adhered to Night of Navy and mounted on the base card Daffodil Delight.
Hope you are inspired by it.
Thanks for stopping by.
Fantastic card Naomi. I sometimes struggle to create this type of cad. I bet he will loves it
Thanks Vicki. I was very happy with the result.
Very inspiring Naomi – I’m sure this card went down well with the boys! I was really touched to read your lovely comment on my blog too – thank you. Vicky x
