And the Beat Goes on.......

My teenage daughter asked me to do a birthday card for a friend of her's at school. Masculine cards are a challenge for me and then a teenage masculine card made it even more challenging. I found an image on my Slice that reminded me of the Beats headphones that are pretty popular noways among the kids so I hope he likes it. I embossed the white cardstock with the stars embossing folder and all of the cuts were done using my Slice. I added stickles to the headphones to make the card pop a little.


Then after seeing this card using negative space by Jojorenee I knew that I wanted to lift it. So using a couple of my butterfly punches I backed the negative space with patterned paper and used white on white cardstock that I embossed using my Cuttlebug. I used my MM tag maker for the vellum tag and stamped it using a Papertrey Ink stamp. I topped the card off with some of my favorite May Arts ribbon with a pretty bow. I am also entering this card into the current Simon Says challenge. The prizes are amazing, you should check it out.

You're so right about the headphones. Sometimes I think they're glued to my son's head LOL. I know you daughter's friend will love this card. The embossed star background really makes the headphones pop.

The butterfly card is so pretty. Did you purchase your May Arts ribbon online? I've been trying to find an online store that carries it.
