1000 Thanks and a Big Hi

Hi Everyone,

my son asked my to make a card for his teacher - he is a real popular guy and the whole class loves him. So a masculine card is in order and what better to use than the fabulous inspiration picture from Papercrafting Magazine Mondays challenge!
They are celebrating their 100th challenge - woot, woot - I am happy I can be part of this!
Here is my card:

I used the Rainbow Stripes die by Papertrey and did this as inlaid die cut technique with shimmer paper. the die cut sentiment is by Lil Inkers - die cut it from cardstock as well as fun foam - so much easier than cutting mutiple layers and gluing them together. This is just 2 layers.....The 1000 stamps are by Studio G - they are really alphabet stamps.....added some Washi tape. 

Here is one of the inspiration pictures from the challenge - love this, just up my alley - graphic and modern.

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 100 Inspiration Piece - Cover #3 (image)

And here another view of my card:

Alphabet challenge - G for glitz and glamour  - have shimmer here and glamour, no glitz
AAA challenges - For the Guys
Happy Little Stampers - dies cuts and punches - both cards

I have a second card to share:

Made this for Winnie & Walter and playing with my brand new supplies :)))
I fell in love with that big hi die - so cool! On one of my trips to Michaels I bought those craft notecards - why I am buying cards you may ask....I did ask myself the same question.... but I wanted that paper and thought I'll incorporate it into my own cards - that's why....
I embossed the white card stock with a Papertrey embossing plate. Its quite subtle and you can only see this in the first photograph. 

Added the sentiment - also W&W and gilded the edge.

Linking up with:

The Gossip Column at Winnie & Walter - something geometric
Simply Create Too - keep it simple
Shopping our stash - gold and silver
Happy Little Stampers - dies cuts and punche
ODBD challenge May - embossing

Hello Cornelia,

just fabulous, such funky cards x

Flo said...

Die Danke-Karte ist toll. Der schwarz-weiße Hintergrund ist immer wieder schön.
Die Hi-Karte ist mir persönlich etwas zu farblos, ich mag es eher knallig, aber man muss ja auch mal an die Menschen denken, die es nicht knallig mögen. Da gibt es einige!!!
Genieß den Rest des Pfingstfestes,
