I made this card for the son of one of my BFF's for this 15th birthday. Thank God he plays alot of "Guitar Hero" of I would have been stumped for a theme. I used Plantin Schoolbook for the card back and CD inside. The front was welded in Design Studio using Mickey font and Indie Art on the shadow feature. The "U" was cut again in shiny black cardstock and run through the Cuttlebug using the Diamonds in the Rough folder. The red letters are Bazzill. The guitar is cut several times using charcoal mirror board, shiny black and holographic paper. I used the holographic on the CD inside as well. Stringing the strings was a challenge. The silver wire kept refusing to cooperate (that's why there are only 3 LOL). Used my fave embellie (those adhesive beads from M's) for the tuning thingys. the silver stars inside were peel offs, the red ones and sentiment were from the Birthday Wishes cuttlebug die/emboss combo. Had to make a kickstand for the back so it would stand up. All day I kept saying "Okay, is he really gonna care that I made this for him?" (to myself) but when he opened it he said "WHOA! DID YOU MAKE THIS?" Gotta love him, made my day!
