I needed a birthday card for my nephew and was having trouble thinking up something fun. When I first saw the H2H Sketch for this week, it didn't seem like it was going to help me out much. But I kept staring at it, and one thought led to another, and here's where I ended up:
My Converse-inspired birthday card! My nephew is athletic and this just seemed like a fun idea. I started googling Converse sneakers and I was inspired by the styling of them, and I knew I could make it fit the sketch. I did alter the sketch a bit - rotating it, and changing up the square to be the Converse circle.
I started with a piece of Tulip cardstock which (even though you can't really tell from the photo) has been lightly sanded to make it look like canvas. Next I used white embossing powder to make the stitches (from the You & Me Stamp Set). The alphabet is Tiny Typewriter.
If I were to do this one over again, I would have used liquid glass on the shoelace grommets just for fun. I really do want to make more of these cards. There are so many cool Converse out there to be inspired by.
