I know you're thinking "what?! Two posts in one day?" but I was so loving this guitar card I just made that I had to upload it as soon as it was finished!
Isn't it so freaking cute? I found the template on Stampinspot's blog as a free download. She has some awesome templates on her site.
Anyway, my husband has just recently learned to play the guitar and I thought this would be a perfect card for him. It's just perfect for a guy's birthday don't ya think?
I had some of this paper that is really thinly sliced pieces of wood, so it has the wood grain in it. I have had this paper for YEARS and have never used it before, but it's perfect for this! The hardest part for me was tying all of the strings. It probably didn't help that my cat was on my stamping table at the time and was very interested in all those threads I was playing with!
I sponged around the edges of the guitar for some depth and used my nestabilites for the circles.
I used a font called Rock It for the wording. I freehand cut a rounded triangle for a "pick" and did some sponging on that as well. The guitar and the pick are both popped up with dimensionals. Cute huh? Okay, back to your weekend activities and thanks for looking!
