Banner Card for Master 8

Hi all,

Recently I had to make a card for Bestie's little boy who was turning 8. As usual, I left it to pretty much the last minute. I had hoped to do a punch art creation, but instead, I caught a glimpse of a card on someone's Pintrest board and I went form there.

The card I based mine on I found here (2nd card down) but as you can see it was a very girly card and I needed a real BOY card. I really liked the idea of the HB2U...especially for a boy. With that in mind, I created this......

Very much more for the 8 year old don't you think?? I used the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and co-ordinating framelits as well as the Typeset Alphabet Bigz dies. The WW background I thought was too barren, so I embossed it with the Chevron EF and then stamped the "splat" from Extreme Elements set in the co-ordinating colour beneath the banner. Because I stamped on the embossed paper, it gives it a really funky look.
The other element was some basic white crochet cotton and a WHOLE lot of dimensionals to have the banners "sit up". On the inside of the card I cut a banner from the Polka Dot DSP and layered an 8 cut from Silver Glimmer paper.

Thanks for popping by. Hope you perhaps got inspired a little. I have HEAPS more to share, just need the time to put it all together!!!

CS: (SU) Pacific Point, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Marina Mist, Polka Dot DSP, Silver Glimmer Paper
