Digging Deep...

You never know what you’ll find at the bottom of the drawer, do you?? This challenge had me so deep down in the bottom of my paper drawer that I needed a flashlight…

This is a card for Kazan’s sketch #25 at 2S4Y and the minute I saw her card for the sketch, I knew I wanted to attempt a teen guy card for a friends son’s upcoming birthday.

The paper and ribbon are from Stemma. They are a few years old, but still give me that funky feel whenever I pull them out. The bottle cap…remember those??? I don’t know who made this one, but I still have a container of them and was so happy to find one that matched the colors of the card. And it felt quite therapeutic to whack at it with my rubber mallet on the basement floor!! The metal star is from a Christmas tag set I’ve had for a few years, the twine is from Karen Foster, Cuttlebug dots embossing folder, and the ‘cool’ letters and stars are from Me and My Big Ideas. I sanded and distressed the heck out of this card, and there it is-my teen guy card! Hope the teen guy I made it for likes it.

Since I had the paper out, I made another card…back to my girly roots! To the Stemma paper, I added a QuicKutz scallop border, Prima flower, K&Co. bling and sentiment-again from the bottom of the drawer.Thank you for stopping by…what’s at the bottom of your drawers??????
