Ok there is a little tale to this card and a lot of Blog Hopping as well!!
Today's challenge on 365 cards is to make a matchbook card so for once I decided to have a look at some of the cards already posted to see what sort of things people were doing for this and also to get an idea of sizes etc..
Well I just happened to look at Pam's blog first and she has posted to say that she has combined her card with another challenge on a blog called Use It!
So off I go to have a look at this blog and the challenge on there is this set by Regan-
1.Go out of your comfort zone, for me is it “guy cards” ,
eeek they scare me to be honest.
2.Use something you’ve been hoarding for a while.
3.Use some of your new favourite things..paper, embellishments whatever
4. Heat Embossing
Well I couldnt resisit another challenge so like Pam I decided to combine the 2 challenges and here is my card
Ok for the Use It! challenge
1. I struggle to make cards for pre-teenage boys, cant use anything to babyish or too grown up
2. The Harley is a Jollees sticker I bought about 4 years ago and my Grandson has always loved it so this card is for his birthday, he will be 11. I have also used a chain I have had in my office for about a year knowing it would be useful one day.
3. The Pale Grey card on the front is new, it has a really great texture which in places looks like leather.
4. Heat embossing- I cut the word Ride with my Cricut and then heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.
I think that this card qualifies for both challenges dont you?
