JAI 111 Just add a sketch

Are you confused? Seeing blue? When you saw red?? Yep that's right, this week I have not just one, but two cards for you!!

I try as much as possible to make cards for the kids to take to the birthday's they are invited too. So this week I used our Just Add Ink challenge - to Just Add a Sketch, to make not just one but two. For once I'll be ahead of the game! Here's the sketch.

What's your fav? The blue or the red?

And of course - the inside - ta da ;)

I always find boy cards tricky - trying to get that balance between not being too plain but not adding so many extra embellishments that it ends up a girl card! So to deal with that I added in lots of texture. The embossed foil sheet looks awesome embossed with the chevron folder and the tire track background and car are all heat embossed to add some dimension and shine. If you looks closely you'll see a little peep of some chevron ribbon too!

I still have one these stashed away ready for the next birthday invite :)

Hope you can join us this week. Do check out the rest of the DT for lots of fabulous sketch inspiration.

  1. Oh Kim I feel your pain when it comes to masculine cards but you've done a fab job with these two!

    Hope you have a great Easter xox

  2. Oh, l love both colour ways Kim! Great masculine cards and suitable for a wide age group too! Your tyre tread stamping is great and works so well with the metalic embossed panel. xx

  3. Both colours are great Boy cards Kim. I love how the metalic panel looks - it's perfect for these cards. Chantell

  4. Both cards are totally cool Kim! I've been resisting buying this stamp set but every time I see it, I want it all over again. You've used it to perfection!

  5. For someone who finds boys cards tricky you certainly make a fabulous job of creating them! Both of these are awesome, love the bold of both the red and blue and the embossed foil is PERFECTION! xox

  6. What an awesome idea using the foil and embossing it! Perfect boys cards Kim - love them! CAS-ing for sure!! Lou x
