Playing with my new Mangas

Another Birthday card. This one is for my nephew David who will be 21 tomorrow. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID!!! I was fed up with the usual 21st birthday cards and thought Rocker Boy was just perfect.
Had been at a craft class on Monday night where we had to do a card that was shall we say not symetrical?? Fiona was there that night too and to say we were out of our comfort zone once again was an under statement!! Poor Fiona was sat there quivering and sitting on her hands stating I can`t do this!!! Once she`d made the dreaded cut and showed it to Yvonne who was taking the class, Yvonne grabbed it and made a bigger cut in it! Well we were rolling about laughing by this point but in the end I for one was very pleased with the result. Anyway I degress, as you can see I adapted the same cut for the birthday card as I thought it lent itself to the theme
For this card I used card stock from my stash.
Found a picture of a guitar on GOOGLE and traced round shapes in different coloured card, silver peel offs were used for the strings of the guitar & wording was cut very kindly by Fiona on her Cricut. DST & Pinflair glue from stash. Manga Rocker Boy Sugar nellie stamp was coloured in using promarker pens


  1. Well you know I love this card, its rocktastic, hope david has a fab birthday, and boy to say I was outta my comfort zone is a huge understatement on this slanty angles, oh me, it hurt to cut a perfectly straight card like that.

  2. Oh your tale just made me laugh no end. Wish I lived up there with you lot too...... What great fun. This just looks so good & so inventive I hope he likes it. Wonderful to see you back again as I did miss you whilst you were away.
