Stay Cool!

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!!

Here is a card I created using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch from yesterday, SSSC144!  I LOVE when a sketch has an oval or circle element.

I created this card using the UBER cool new Pure Innocence Snowboard Boy from My Favorite Things.  I just LOVE how he is mid-jump on his snowboard!   I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored him with Copic Markers and then cut out the panel with Oval Nestabilities.  While the cardstock was still in the die, I traced around the inside with a Copic Multliner to create the frame, taking care that his snowboard was "out of the box".  I added Glossy Accents to his snowboard to make it super shiny.

All of the patterned paper is Endless & Fair Weather from Nest by Authentique.  I LOVE the colors in this paper for a boy card.  I added an orange bow (which takes away from the masculine look lol) and then added the sentiment, "Stay Cool" onto a panel which I cut with the Notched Tag Die-Namics.  I stamped the frame around the panel with the Notched Tag stamp set.  I added some wonky (on purpose) stitching and two silver brads layered with orange circles punched with a 1/4 Circle Punch.

For the inside I added some more patterned paper, wonky stitching, and another fun sentiment from this set, "Have A Shreddin' Birthday".

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
