Hi Folks! Teen boy birthday cards continue to be in high demand at our house, so I've been trying to focus on making more of those. This time, since I had a design that I was happy with, I left the stamps on the misti and just kept on making these one layer cards. Let's take a look!
As sad as I was when Michele retired my favorite Rad set, you can imagine how thrilled I was when she announced she was bringing it back, only better than ever! Rad 2 is full of great words that you can mix and match like I've done here to get the exact message you want.
I die cut a large star from Stars Fri-Dies and used that as a template to blend the vibrant Catherine Pooler Inks onto the card.
I tried some warm, pretty colors, and voila, a teen girl card!
Sometimes I'd make a mistake and sponge ink outside of my stencil (see the large pink strip under "totally") but instead of tossing it like I would have done years ago, I've learned to embrace these telltale signs that it's a handmade card. Especially on a grungy, laid back card like this.
It was fun trying different color combinations.
And I love that they are all one layer. Couldn't be easier!
It was also exciting to see what different shades of color would appear where the stars overlap. I think those overlapped areas make the cards more interesting.
