Rock & Roll, Rock Star, Teen Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a teen birthday card to share with you. I found it on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a try since I had almost a full package of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Rock & Roll" 12" x 12" package. You can see the original card here. Please read on to see how I made the card.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Real Red card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock for the layer and a 4-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White for the inside. I taped that piece in place.

A 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White card stock was cut for the front of the card.

The DSP was cut at 2" x 3-3/4". Did you ever look at the pieces after you cut them and think you cut them too small. Somehow when they come off my cutter they look smaller than I thought they should be. I did have the size right but it just looked small to me. Anyway, after cutting the DSP I cut a Real Red piece to measure 2-1/4" x 3-3/4". I taped the two layers together. I set them on top of the card so I could see where the words should go.

The words are from the "Rock Star" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. After stamping the words I taped the DSP layer to the front of the card about 5/8" up from the bottom edge.

The guitar was stamped next and die cut. Then colored using the dark Real Red Blends pen.

The circle is from the "Everyday Details" set and was cut from a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. At the same time I also die cut the stars using a scrap piece of Real Red card stock. I taped the circle in place and then I glued the bottom part of the guitar in place. I added a small dot of glue and set the stars on the card and the card was done.

This was a quick and fun card to make. I may make some more using different colors. I have an awful lot of DSP left!

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

What a great card! It would be perfect for my 13 year-old grandson who plays bass guitar in a band. :-)
