Skateboarder card

 This is my project for my DT post at movingalongwiththetimes

A birthday for one of my friends son. I always find male cards a challenge. 

This is a Hobbyhouse topper that I have mounted on blue card. 

I have printed a sentiment and die cut it with a Go Kreate die and then cut the next size in the set in a dark blue. I cut the numbers using Marianne dies in the light and dark blue 

I covered my 8x8in card with patterned paper from my stash. I added a strip of blue card down my card and added bakers twine to it/ I assembled the die cut elements. I added the numbers slightly offsetting them when attaching them.

I completed my card with stars that I cut with a punch
