Tag Card - You Rock - For Teenage Boys


The Cards For Hospitalized Kids Charity has requested cards for teenage boys.  I always struggle with making cards for teenagers but I looked through my Silhouette files and gave it a try this afternoon using a rock star theme.

The rock star image is actually a cut file (see below) that I changed in to a printable file.  Used a tag shape to create the card base and top layer, added a border stripe made with patterned papers that came with the Studio DE software, then flipped the image and typed in the saying, printed the pieces and cut them out with my Cameo.  Finished off with a ribbon and tied a bow with jute twine.
