Hey guys. “Literally”- guys 🙂 My oldest son turned 14 last week and I always find it challenging, to say the least, to come up with birthday cards for him. I was trying to think about things he liked that I could actually create and Flash Gordon came to mind. He loves Flash Gordon shirts- so I looked one up online and tried to re-create it.
Okay so how the heck did I create that lightening bolt right? The old fashioned way- I traced it. The picture of a t-shirt I found online? I zoomed to like 500% on my computer and then I held a piece of copy paper over the computer and traced it. I know- real technical, ha ha. So once I did that, I took a piece of scrap Crushed Curry Cardstock and cut it out.
Once I had the lightening bolt cut out, I adhered it to a piece of Basic Black cardstock and cut around the edges to give it a shadow look. The Circle was made using the Circles Collection Framelits and the card base is Real Red. All Stampin’ Up! of course.
Time is almost up to register for this kit to go and stamp set! RSVP by September 17th to ensure you grab your class!
