WWC158 - Helen's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge
This week's challenge is being hosted by Helen Finlay and was absolute perfect timing, too. I had to make a birthday card for my grandson and this challenge is our Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge. How serendipitous is that?
Since he had loved a pop-up card which I had created recently, I decided to create one just for him. As luck would have it, I had just received a die in the mail which I had ordered with him in mind. (Don't you love it when things fall into place like that?)
The die-cut on this card is beautiful, isn't it? I cut it out of gold foil and then used my alcohol Stampin' Blends to add a bit of colour. My grandson's favourite colour is red and so those drums are gold and red with black feet. His name begins with an "X" which explains that great big X in the centre of that large drum. I had such fun making this card because he is a special guy and besides loving to play the drums, he also follows "the beat of his own drum".
As I mentioned, I made the inside of the card a pop-up. This one is all about his birthday and that great big red star comes out at least an inch or so. As you can see, I left room in the centre to write something special to our special boy.
Oh, and since his birthday was a couple of days ago, I can tell you that he really was delighted. He told me it's going into his treasure box.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by our other Watercooler Artists at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
