Grunge CD Card

  Hello fellow stampers.  I am really excited about my card today.  It is MASCULINE.  You all know how hard it is to make masculine cards.  Maybe it is just me.  I am from a long, long line of girl families.  My grandmother was one of 4 girls; my mother was the oldest of 3 girls; I am the oldest of three girls and I have three girls.  So, hopefully you can understand that if I create anything that would appeal to a boy, I am thrilled. :)
 My teen nephew has a birthday coming up and I just got this month's PTI releases of Grunge Me and Game On sets TODAY in the mail to create his card. 
What do you think?
 
It is a CD card.
   I cut the black circle for the cd with a Fiskars Circle cutter.  I resized the cutter and cut a smaller circle of green.  The centers were cut out with a Spellbinder's circle (smaller for the black and bigger for the green).
  What I love most about these stamps and grungy look....mistakes are welcome!!!
 
I am allllll about mistakes!!!  See that black embossing powder?


I am linking this to Papertrey's April Bloghop.  I hope you like my project!  Thanks for stopping by :).

  4. This is so creative. Sometimes a new card shape can give such a unique twist to a card and stamp set. Love the way you've used the stamps in black ink on the green background. Very cool.

  19. This is super cool!! I need to use your ideal,I think it would make an awesome graduation invitation for my son. Did you put the card in a real cd case?

  20. The cd case IS the card. :) The front of the case is the front of the card. The "CD" is the inside of the card. My husband almost tore that paper out, thinking it was a real CD. LOL.
    It WOULD make an awesome invitation! If you post the pics on your blog...make sure and link back to this post; I would appreciate it! Let me know if you do, I would love to see what you came up with. :)
