IB177 Shred the Cake

Hi there, everyone!  Thursday's here and with it comes a new Inspired By challenge...I love that it's a masculine one:


I must be really out of the loop because I have no idea what "shred the cake" means....must be a skateboarding term!  Here is our optional sketch, too, which I sort of used:

I have this "retro" SU skateboarder image, so I used my Stamparatus to stamp it on some Smoky Slate cardstock, and here's what I ended up with:

I cut the stamped panel into three panels, mounted it on a Basic White base, then added some enamel dots to pull in some color reflected in the skateboard on the wall:

I found some retired Taken with Teal cardstock and created a card base, then used a die from Stitched Leaves to create some interest at the bottom, and added a Real Red Stitched Nested Label as a background to this cool "celebrate" image that I got from a sweet friend!

I used the bold sentiments from Biggest Wish to stamp the inside:

I like how this turned out ! It's always a challenge to create masculine cards, but this one came together quickly!  I hope you can find some inspiration from our fun photo....can't wait to see what you create with it!  Check out what the DT created as well at the Inspired By blog!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

Masculine cards are a challenge, but you rocked it! That stitching is perfect and what a tremendous image. Love the pops of red!

What a cool card for a teen LeAnne! I've never heard of that expression and neither have my teens - although they aren't skateboarders, so maybe that's why! I have that stamp in MDS - haven't used it in ages though!

I was out of the loop too, LeAnne until I saw some commenters along the way who schooled us all! You rocked it with the perfect image and that fun stitched die!
