As is usual with my son, he informed me yesterday that it’s the 13th birthday of one of his friends today. I suppose I should be grateful he at least told me the day before – he sometimes tells me about birthdays on the day itself! As the two of them seem to lapse into game-speak the minute they meet, the theme for this card was an easy choice and an ideal opportunity to play with a recent Ebay purchase of some Papertrey Ink games stamps. I framed the greeting with a stamp by American Crafts.
I decided to play along with a couple of challenges again this week, I find this really helps my card designs come together a lot more quickly. The latest challenge at Less is More is a one layer card which mustn’t be a square or rectangle. As I don’t have a cutting machine or any dies to make a card blank I had to keep it simple so I stuck with a hexagon as that was easy to achieve with an ordinary guillotine! I also combined it with the sketch at Sketch Saturday & have discovered another challenge at Keep It Simple that I can enter it into as well.
