Today I would like to show you a card I made using Alexander from Make it Crafty.

005 (Medium)

I went a little different this time and made my card 5 x 7. I thought it would look good as a taller card since Alexander is tall. I like the way this one turned out. I used DCWV Timeless for. I inked the edges of the all of the DP with Tim Holtz distress inkBlack Soot. I added Tim Holtz sprocket gears, memo pins and game spinners. For the corner pieces I used Make it Crafty Delicate Corners chipboard (love these things!!), colored them with Black Soot and then added Adirondack Gold Paint Dabber. The birthday sentiment is from JustRite.

This is a close up of the Delicate corners.

007 (Medium)

I printed Alexander onto Make it Crafty blending card and then colored with Copics. After coloring I took some more distress ink – tea dye, antique linen and black soot and sponged the edges but with the antique linen I went over the entire image.

006 (Medium)

Copics used – E11, E00, E000, R11, R12, T6, T5, T3, T2, B39, B37, N8, N6, N5, N4, N3, E49, E59, E57
