We made this card at my cardmaking group like a week and a half ago. Cute, no? It was supposed to have kind of a grungey look. I kept dropping one-liners about Eddie Vedder and Kurt Cobain and flannel shirts, and they were met with blank stares by a lot of the ladies in my group. (A few of them are totally retired - weren't really aware of the whole early-nineties grunge thing.) The two younger gals would snicker at my jokes about the movie Singles (one of my all-time faves) and "Smells Like Teen Spirit," though, which pleased me.
So we would stamp stuff, and then we would use this stamp set that's called Grunge (from Stampin' Up) with silver ink, of all things, to grunge it up a little. One of the stamps looks like splattered ink and one looks like some uneven lines. It was fun. I would have never thought of silver to create a grunge look, but it really did the trick.
I sent this card to my beautiful mother-in-law for her 70th birthday last week! I cannot believe she's 70. She seriously looks 50, tops. I hope I age that well.
