About Spelling

If you follow my blog or know me at all, you will soon realize that I spell certain words differently from what you are used to seeing on most web sites. This is because I am Canadian and I am a spelling NUT. It drives me crazy when things are misspelled. So naturally, it would rub me the wrong way to purposely leave out letters from words that I know need them. Canadian spelling is actually a blend of British and U.S.

Rockin' Birthday

Rockin' Birthday Card for Teen Boy Turning 15

This 5-1/2" square card is loaded with layers. The design inspiration is from the background paper. Just perfect for the 15-year-old recipient.
Celebrate 15th Birthday
Your Rock! Front of Card for Teen Boy

Details

You Rock card front
Card base is deep teal, layered with pearly aqua, then the background "rock music" paper.

The bass guitar player is cut from bronze cardstock.  The shine is more evident in the picture at left.

"Celebrate" banner is shadowed in the same bronze.

For extra emphasis of the theme, I stamped the words "You Rock" near the bottom.

Ticket Embellishment

B-day No. 15 Ticket
The ticket frame is cut from embossed paper, inked around the edges. 

I created the centre of the ticket in PhotoShop and printed the insert onto the same CS as used for the "Celebrate" banner.

I love how the ticket turned out!

Inside

You Rock Birthday guitar inside
The card inside is as busy as the outside. Don't you hate it when a card is boring on the inside?

I continued the music theme with the guitar on the inside left panel. It's all about the details, so I spent some time jazzing up the guitar. The notes are punched to match the swirls behind the guitar.

As usual, I created the verse in Word and printed it on cardstock. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the same bronze CS.

About Me

My photo
I guess you might call me a "right brainer", loving all things creative. Cardmaking is the perfect hobby for me as it allows me to be totally creative, combining design with poetry or verses I can compose myself. With Christmas being such an important occasion for cardmaking and crafting, I decided to create a separate blog just for Christmas projects. "It's All About Christmas" will host all my Christmas items. "Gracenotes For Today" will still feature items every other occasion of the year. I hope you'll drop by often and stay awhile!
