If you recall, last week I attempted to make a card for my teenage nephew, but the card had some feminine aspects. So... try again.
I love the Curtain Call color challenge from a couple weeks ago.
You can't really go wrong with the "extreme" line from Stampin' Up. And I need to get more of these style stamps, maybe during Sale-a-bration? ;)
This card is a hodge-podge of ideas from the Splitcoaststampers gallery, with strong influences from 'virgo5' and 'skdeleeuw'. After stamping, I roughened up and distressed the edges with my cutting kit and sponge, and I used my marker and color spritzer for the background. Hint - if you make a free-standing pop-up card, you may want to write your personal greeting before assembling.
This is the card, laying flat for mailing.
