Sk8tor Boy

I love days like today, I was up early and took Monty (the dog) for a walk across the fields, in the hour or so that I was out I saw 2 other people, but we did manage to see rabbits, a fox and a couple of squirrels, it’s at times like these you realise why its great to live in the country.

This card has been created for a forum buddies boy Ryan who is 5 today. The sk8tor image is from dimensions fourth which is a great online shop for those in the UK that want unmounted stamps…they will even make them to your design…. and at not an unreasonable charge.

I stamped the sk8tor image in Graphite Black by Brilliance, heat sealed it and then coloured him in using my new copics (oops did I not mention I had purchased those wink) I outlined the white cardstock with a coordinating blue thin line, mounted him on red paper from the For Boys to Men by Paper Pizazz.

I covered the A4 base card with some coordinating check paper again from For Boys to Men by Paper Pizazz, and went around the edge of the card marking faux stitches to help ‘ground’ the paper and added 3 square red gems from Papermania in the right hand bottom corner.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from Creative Expressions in Graphite Black by Brilliance, edged the white card with Rocket Red by Brilliance, and outlined with a blue ink pen. I mounted the white cardstock on to some of the remaining check paper from Paper Pizzaz, and again anchored the paper with some faux stitching; this was all then mounted on some of the red paper.
Inside the card I ran a strip of the red paper along the bottom onto which I added a strip of the check paper, finally I add a further sentiment from Creative Expressions.
