A Variation and an Improvement

Well, I did it. I tried to fix this card to make it a little better. I don’t know if I succeeded or not, you tell me! I don’t know if I should add a little more or not.

Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Sage Shadow

Embellishments: faux nail-heads from Jo-Ann Fabrics, ribbon from American Crafts, stencil (unknown), and punches from Stampin’ Up!

With the leftover scraps from my nephew’s birthday card, I made this card. But I did use the Greetings, Earthling set over the Make a Monster. I think it’s a nice little change up.

I used some clear glue that is like Crystal Effects for the helmet. It looks like his helmet is actually glass. The patterned paper is from the Celebrations DSP and it is my favorite paper pack by far. Probably because Stampin’ Up! doesn’t have a huge arsenal of boy themed items but this is perfect.
