A Rockin’ Card and More!

Continuing on with my “rockin” theme, here is the card I made to go with the set. Can I say again how much I LOVE this colour combo?

The base is Rich Razzleberry and I stamped the upper portion of the card with the fleur-de-lis stamp tone-on tone. About 2/3rds of the way down, I added a strip of Dusty Durango cardstock layered with some Pumpkin Pie textured cardstock layered with some Dusty Durango cardstock. I tied these two layers together with some 5/8″ Basic Black grosgrain (I am SO happy we carry this product this year!). I needed something cool to say for the sentiment so I used the “cheers” from Cheers to You.

For the main piece of the card, I again used Extreme Elements and Extreme Guitar. Looking at it, you may notice that you can see some of the elements through the guitar man, that is intentional. I wanted him to be somewhat in the background to give emphasis to the elements. I adhered this piece to a piece of basic black and tore the bottom edges. This piece is added on with dimensionals and a small half circle notch was punched out to trace around the ribbon knot. I did one more project for this set also:

I thought that a teen might like to have something cool in their locker so I made a few magnets and a magnetic note pad. The magnets are so easy! I used my scallop circle punch and first punched out a piece of medium weight cardboard (the stuff that comes with our DSP). Then I covered it with a Basic Black scallop and then continued with a 1 3/8″ circle of one of the colours I’m working with and a patterned 1 1/4″ circle stamped using Extreme Elements. Then I added a small magnet to the back.

For the notepad, I made a bellyband to go around the top and added a detail very much like the magnets. I then added a long magnetic strip to the back. And Voila!
