The above card is for a 20 yr old man so I am hoping it fits the bill. I went for the "grunge" look and was genuinely going for the messy inked edge look. Do you know, its harder to do something deliberately wrong that to just make a mistake.
So the ingredients for this recipe are as follows:-
Digital Image - "young man typing" from Mo's digital designs, coloured with promarkers
Gridded floor mask from Ali Reeve
Washable sentiment from Ali Reeve
Burlap scrap rubber stamp from "Butterflies" set by Creative expressions
2 papers from (believe it or not) Papermania black & white capsule collection (they aren't all feminine designs, as I think I've proven)
To create the gridded floor effect, I used some "quick mirror" stuff - the type you are supposed to stick to your wall and have an instant safety mirror. I stuck in onto a piece of thin card-stock before running it through the Grand Caliber. As it was a bit shiny for the type of card I wanted, I used a piece of kitchen paper which was enough to take the edge off.
The edges of the papers and the coloured image were inked over with memento ink pad as I don't have a black distress ink pad - yet.
This is a set of 12 digitally designed gift cards for a lady who raises money & awareness for a cancer charity. I used Serif Craft Artist Pro to design the four toppers and these will be the gift cards for 2012.
