Do you remember the classic McDonald's TV ad with the jingle, "You deserve a break today...?" If not, you can listen to a 1970s version here and a 1980s version here.
For some reason, that jingle came to mind when I was thinking about what kind of card I'd like to make my grandson for his 11th birthday. This is what I came up with:
The soda bottle and burger were cut with my Cricut using the Nifty Fifties cartridge. I cut the bottle from a piece of vellum cardstock and tinged it with a bit of green using a ProMarker.
The burger was cut from white cardstock and each layering piece was colored with ProMarkers. I love how it turned out doing that. It enabled me to add some shading to all the pieces and make it look more realistic.
This time the inside of my card is pretty plain, with just a computer-generated sentiment. I left lots of room to write a personal note.
I told my grandson he'd need his mom to sing the jingle for him (I just hope she remembers it!), so he would know what it's suppose to sound like.
I think this card would work for all ages, don't you? The soda bottle and burger were really fun to put together. It was also fun to cut with my Cricut again. It's been a looooooong time since I've done that. I've been too enamored with the Silhouette Cameo to even think about using my Cricut. I'm going to try to use it a bit more in the future, though. What's the use of having a machine if you don't use it???
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
