This card is made for my friend Kristoffer and his birthday this weekend. The inspirations for the card I got from Basic Greys Challenge and House Mouse Challenge for this week. The Layout is from the House Mouse one and the Basic Grey challenge is ”more then one fold” so i decided to make an Easel-Card. All the papers are Basic Greys Pyrus and the stamp is from House Mouse set Birthday: Ice Cream and the stamp Birthday Cupcake. The image is colored with both Promarkers and Copic and the frosting is coated with some glossy accent that have been sprinkled with a bit off black embossingpowder. I tried to find something good as sprinkles but couldn’t find anything suitable and embossingpowder was the best i could come up with (too late I realized that i could have used some of my brown flocking, but maybe next time). I embellished the card by putting in eyelets in the corners of the cardfront and the image and threaded a rounded ribbon through them. Due to the fact that this cardfront is mounted on an Easel-card i just taped down the ends in the bottom half and I did a knot with a piece sticking out on the top half were you can see the backside of the card. I keep  going with the ribbons on bottom part of the card but on the right side i did a visible knot. All the papers are roughed and distressed with vintage Photo. The Image is also distressed with vintage photo and i added some faded jeans. The black embellishments are rubb-ons that i cut into small pieces.


Dagens kort är inspirerat av veckans House Mouse och Basic Greys utmaningar. Basic Grey vill se olika typer av vikningar och House Mouse har en layout (se höger). Stämpeln är som används är Birthday Cupcake från House Mouse set Birthday: Ice Cream. Jag har färglagdt med promarkers och Copics och frostingen är täckt med Glossy Accent och lite svart embossingpulver. För dekoration på kortet har jag valt att fästa eylets och dra igenom ett brunt, runt band. På den övre halvan av kortfronten har jag gjort knutar som syns och på den undre sidan har jag bara tejpat fast bandet då det döljs av Easel konstruktionen.
