Practicing Creativity

A masculine guitarist birthday card idea and 613 Ave. Create #164

A guitarist masculine birthday card idea featuring Di's Gibson Bear digistamp. Design by Paperesse.

Time for a new challenge at 613 Ave. Create; this week's #164 Anything Goes challenge has an optional twist of choosing your own color scheme. I hope you'll click on over and link up your latest creation.

This birthday card for my guitar lovin' cousin features Di's Digi Stamps Gibson Bear stamp. By the way, it and several others are currently on sale; if you're in the market for some new digital cuteness, now's the time to shop (my Valentine's Day card from last week also used a cute new Di's Digi Stamps image).

I'm always on the lookout for guitar images to use on my cuz's cards, like this Valentine's Day card from last year.

The musical notes die are from Toga. The paper is a no brand I picked up from the sale bin at my grocery store (a pleasant surprise at how nice it turned out to be). I created the sentiment with Mister Sirloin BTN Rare font.

Supply List
Paper – cardstock, patterned paper
Digital stamp – Di's Digi Stamps Gibson Bear
Color – Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils
Die – Toga musical notes
Embellishments – metal studs
