Be the Star plus Gorgeous Grunge – Stampin Up – Teen Guy Birthday Card
It's been a while since I've done a teen card, and having this set, Be the Star, and not having used it yet, I pulled it out with notions in mind about what I could do with it. Receiving the new 2014-2016 In Color SAB twine and buttons, I wanted to use some of the twine, so I decided to use as my color palette all of the In Colors except Blackberry Bliss for a nice masculine look.
So I got to stamping and really liked what I came up with. It was time to add the twine, so I went to pick up the package on my desk…and it wasn't there. I spent an hour cleaning up my desk once I realized it was the only way to find it. I got the whole thing clean and STILL no twine/button package. I looked on all the table tops, inside boxes in my room…NOTHING! I was sitting at my desk saying, "WHERE IS IT?!?! (maybe a few expletives added in too)" I thought about getting on Facebook and venting and getting some sympathy, and I glanced to the side at my computer…and there it was. Sitting in front of the computer. The twine/button package. If it had been a dog, it would have bit me. By this time, I needed to get the card done asap so I could start working, but I couldn't believe I spent so much time cleaning up just to find what I was looking for sitting RIGHT THERE! I know I'm not alone, though, right?
ANYWAY…this turned out even better than I had pictured in my head. Lookie:
MOJUS! (YILM!) I love these colors together.
I love the @sosocial set! Great for teen cards. I took one of the plies off the twine to make it a little thinner and give it more texture.
And the inside!
