Nothing’s too gnarly

Sharing a card I made for my nephew featuring a fun stamp called Skater by the now closed Saturated Canary.

The layout follows the current sketch at AAA Cards, which I flipped on its side.  For the rectangular elements I used washi tape so I could also play along at Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge.  Luckily, I had a roll of washi with ‘Happy birthday’ printed on it so that took care of my sentiment as well.  I teamed it with two different patterned tapes to echo graphics on skateboards and tie in with my image.

Over at The Crafter’s Café they want you to layer it up or keep it CAS with some yellow.  I’ve a splash of yellow and am CAS but I’ve actually played the layer it up half of the challenge.  I love adding layers of cardstock to my cards for weight and interest.  On this card I have four plus the card base and then the layer of washi and finally the stamp fussy cut and layered on top.
