Enjoy the Rhythm, Teen Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello! I'm so happy you came to see today's card. I thought I would play with a new set. The "Enjoy the Rhythm" set. I wanted to have a set that would be good for teens and especially boys. There's so many floral cards that lean towards females so I thought I'd get a set that would cover all three, females, males and teens!! Plus I think it would be great Father's Day or dad's birthday card as well. Read further to see how I made this card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left

I stamped the background using the musical notes from the set and Balmy Blue ink. I stamped off once and then stamped twice on the card before I inked up and stamped off again. 

The Designner Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Dandy Designs" 12" x 12" package. I cut a 5-1/4" x 1-1/2" piece and a 5-1/2" x 1-3/4" piece of Balmy Blue for the layer. I taped the two pieces together

I stamped the guitar from the "Enjoy the Rhythm" set using black Memento ink and I die cut it using the second largest die in the group of four dies in the "Rectangle Stitched" framelets set. I cut a Balmy Blue layer that measured 1-1/2" x 3-1/2".  I taped the two pieces together.

Next I stamped the words from the same set using black Memento ink. I die cut them using the second smallest circle die from the "Layering Circles" set. And I used the second smallest scalloped circle for the layer behind it, cutting it from a scrap of Balmy Blue card stock.

I was now ready to assemble my card.

The DSP strip was taped to the right side of the card. Something I don't usually do, my strips seem to go to the left but today I thought I would change it up. It's about 5/8" from the side edge.

Then I set the guitar piece in place using Dimensionals. It's about 1" from the fold and about 1" from the top and the bottom of the card.

Dimensionals were added to the right side of the word piece and double-sided tape to the left and that piece was set in place on top of the guitar piece.  And the card was done.

I had second thoughts about this set after I saw it in my order but now that I've looked at it closer I can see a lot of possibilities with it. This was a fun and quick card to make.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's teen birthday card,

Great idea for a young man (or girl) who would be interested in music. Cards for teen boys are extremely hard for me. I have a grandson turning 17 next week and am at a loss. I'm going to see if I have something with basketball.
