School Boy Card

Can you believe that school will be starting soon.  Where did the summer go? 

I have a cute card to share with you today for McMahon Five Designs.  The digital images and pattern papers are by Kris Breach.  Lots of us know how challenging it is to make masculine cards.  And you would think having four grandsons I would find it very easy.  But sometimes it’s a challenge for me too.

Kris’ digital images sure makes it easy for me.  She gives you both outline and colored images to use.  And her papers are awesome!  Check them out by clicking on the image titles below.


School Boy Color & Outline

School Days Digital Papers


My Project

Details:  I used the outline digital image from the School Boy Digital Image Set.  And colored it using Paint Shop Pro (except for the hair I used Prisma Colored Pencils).  The shirt was made using the plaid pattern paper from School Days Digital Papers. I also incorporated the pattern paper as one of the layers on the front of the card.  The solid color papers are from my Stash.  The card base and printed image were created using  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Card stock.  The filigree apple and “back to SCHOOL” sentiment is from the Silhouette Store.  The glitter dots and arrows were created using Stickles Glitter Glue (True Blue).  The highlights on the apples were created using Gelly Roll White ink pen by Sakura and then highlighted with Stickles Glitter Glue (Diamond).    If you have any questions concerning my card feel free to contact me. 

If you get a chance stop by the McMahon Five Designs Blog to see the other neat creations by the Design Team.  And thank you for stopping by my Blog too.
