GUITAR CARD


Hello
My friend asked me to make a card for her son Matt who will be 14 tomorrow and is learning to play the guitar.
For my card I used an A5 (8 1/2x11"folded in half) card covered with the black and silver paper from DCWV Rockstar stack. The star is cut from cricut cart George in black @4 3/4" on shadow twice and once in silver mirri card for base which I then cuttled with CB folder Diamond Plate (spot the mistake it's debossed I put the folder on the wrong way!). The guitar is from Indie Art cart cut @ 5" in black silver and white photo glossy. I only threaded 3 strings as it was driving me mad trying to do this lol and some silver beads at the top of the guitar. The sentiment is on Silver inkjet although impossible to tell from the photo matted on black and again on silver. All are pop dotted for dimension. This card looks so much better in real life it was so hard to photograph! My friend was really pleased with it thank goodness!
Thanks for looking!
Julie

This really rocks Julie! I like the diamond plate debossed. It looks cool. Stringing those strings really does put you over the edge, doesn't it? You're such a good friend. xxD

Wow Julie! This card just rocks my friend! I have the indie cartridge, and still haven't cut that guitar. I love yours, they are alway fantastic. I can imagine you were pulling your hair out at the end stringing that guitar. LOL, I know your friend had to be pleased. TFS
