The Cutest Karate Kid by LOTV!!!!
Happy Wednesday to everyone!! I hope you are having a splendid week and this is the very HUMP DAY--- so good, bad, or indifferent, we are halfway to the weekend already!!! It has been so warm here that outside work is early in the mornings...but I am not complaining!! I like it much better than ice and snow!!!
I would like to share with you a card that is perhaps one of the most difficult I have ever made although for many of you, you will think that it is easy as can be!!!! It is always so very difficult for me to make masculine cards but I had in my mind that I wanted this card to be very simple...so we will see what you think of it. The base and all matting is Bazzill and the DP is all from the MME Lime Twist-Fly A Kite Collection. Gosh such bright and vivid colors are so fun!!! All of the background panels are machine stitched. The cute, cute, cute image I used is LOTV Karate Kid from the Latest Collection of One for the Boys!!! This cutie was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. This little green belt darlin' was emphasized in the Karate Belt tie with a horizontal of emerald green satin. For additional embellishments I used a couple of star buttons and the sentiment is computer generated with Chinese Takeaway font and placed on double Concentric Stars Nesties. The image was cut with Square Nesties and turned on its end. And SHUCKS in the picture his face looks smudged and dirty but I can't see it at all in real life...lol...Cameras and computers drive me NUTZ!!!!!
The first panel on the inside sports a Okinawan-Japanese kanji symbol for something--it's either FRIEND or the symbol for kanji...but I liked the looks of the symbol so I used it!!!..lol... It was cut out with triple Nesties, adding a bit of emerald green satin ribbon behind it. For the second panel I used a larger Nestie star for the jotting panel with the remainder of the sentiment and adding a flat tied green satin knot and another gold star.
I hope you like my little creation and will check out all of the other CUTE, CUTE little guys at LOTV .
Thank you so very much for coming by to see what's happening here today!! It tickles my heart to see that you have been here and I am hoping that you will drop by often!! Have a marvelous day and until we next meet, I send a big hug to you!!!
