Party This Way

I just wanted to pop in (late on a Sunday night) with a card I made over the last few days.  I loved the card - it was for my son's friend who recently turned 9.  Two things on the agenda: Nothing girly and his favourite colour was orange.  Hmmm.  Gets you thinking!!  So this is what I came up with:

 Isn't it cute?  Well in a non-girly sort of way.  I was really pleased with it.  Black, silver/grey and orange.  The right colour combo and I think it works.  The Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP in the Holiday Catalogue was perfect!

For the spider web background I covered a scrap piece of cardstock with some aluminium foil and ran it through the Big Shot with the Spider Web Embossing Folder.  TIP:  Use a glue stick as it's easy to spread and gives great coverage.  But the card needed something.

So I added the number 9.  I wasn't going to add the number, in fact we had already written inside the card and it was ready to go inside the envelope.  But I had a last sneaky peek and decided to do a little number.  Hooray for the Big Shot!

So lots of details, but nothing girly - check.  Card had orange - check, check, check!!
