Extreme Cards

Ok, so here is my card that I created using my own homemade DS Paper. I have three nephews and two boys of my own, so coming up with masculine cards are especially difficult for me -and when they are all growing up so fast! I can't really get away with robots and choo choo trains anymore! This a money holder card - I got the template from the very talented Amy Celona. Thank you Amy for sharing this great card!

Never mind trying to come up with masculine cards, but try to figure out what a teenager would want most is another - so the best thing - give them cash!

Rather than punch the side, I tore the edge to make it more rustic. I used Chocolate Chip Craft Ink. Once stamped, rather than lifting the stamp completely off of the cs, I tilted it a bit to the left and swiped it to the left to give it an illusion of the skateboarder going fast or flying through the air. Although you may not be able to see it clearly, but I did sponge some Bashful Blue around the skater to act as clouds.

I then roughed up the edges and curled the corners and added the linen thread.

So here is the inside of the card.

This is the other card I made using the Extreme Biker. This one will be for my son's best friend, whose birthday is next week.

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: Extreme Elements, Extreme Biker, Extreme Skateboarder
Paper: Not Quite So Navy, Old Olive, WW, Summer Picnic DS (retired)
Ink: Not Quite So Navy, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Orange
Accessories: Linen Thread, Brads

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed my take on the money holder card!

Have a wonderful Easter!
