I wana be a Rock Star!

Good Day Everyone!

Hope you are all well!? Looks like Summer finally came back! Huzzah!

I must say in advance that part of my card might cause offence to some people. So just to pre-warn you! No offence is intended.

I was asked to create a card for a work colleague! He is a MASSIVE Foo Fighters fan and is also a drummer!

Sooooooooo armed with my brief I did a brief bit of googling and found an AWESOME image of Dave Grohl drumming in his devil disguise from his cameo in Tenacious D.

I freakin' love Tenacious D and Dave Grohl and decided then and there that the card would be based around this image :)

I created a Gate Fold..... well kind of... a kind of pop-up gate fold card with the image as the centrepiece and a printed sentiment with a die-cut guitar! Rock and Roll!


I was really chuffed with how this turned out!
I got to use my new favourite embossing folder again to create the awesome stars!

Everyone loved these! (I've given it to him already) The stars always look great to me! Any excuse to play with my new toy! hehee

The guitar was given to me pre-assembled in a set of die cuts as a birthday present, so I have no idea where it originates! It just went so perfectly with the image!

The text was generated using the font: Sketch Block!
The whole card was created using a sheet of A4 black card!

The front has die-cut stars using my nesties! I also used my black versamark inkpad to "grunge" the front a little bit for that extra hint of rock and roll ness!

The stars took ages to cut out! SO i have invested in a punch now for quickie stars!

Anyway I hope you have enjoyed taking a looksie at this card!
I will be back early next week with some exciting news! We all love exciting news.

This weekend I am away doing the last bulk job of wedding stationery for my sister-in-law! I can't believe it's two weeks until she gets married! Eeeek!

I do however, have an awesome post scheduled for tomorrow which I hope you will look forward to!
