Kay’s Blog Takeover 2012 Day 5

Hello! Welcome to the last day of posts from my 17-year-old-step-daugther, Kay. (You can find out more about this HERE.) Enjoy – I will be back soon…

Hello, recovering Purple People Eaters. I hope that you have been well in my absence and remembering the Seven Step Process to recovery. (But it’s not like we judge you.) :)

Today is a bittersweet day in Blog Week History. You see, this is the last day of Kay’s Blog Takeover Week. I know, I know – I’m just as sad as you are. I’m going to miss making these cards, writing these posts, and talking to you guys every day.

Here is my last card. I used the cutest card set again today (THIS one) – one that’s based on teenagers. It has everything from a cell phone, to lockers, to cute phrases like “I <3 U”…

I thought the lockers were exceptionally cute, in a sort of simple type of way. Here is my masterpiece…

I will now tell you how to make it. I hope that you enjoy it :)

Step 1: Stamp 11 lockers onto white cardstock with Memento Black Ink and color them in with Copics markers, making every locker a different color. Cut them out.
Step 2: Decide what order you want to put the lockers onto the card and attach them to the card, making every other locker stand out with foam adhesive.
Step 3: Embellish every other locker (except for the one in the middle) with glossy accents, and embellish the middle one with Stickles.
Step 4: Stamp the “friend” greeting onto white card stock. Stazon ink is fine. Then, punch the greeting out and attach it to the notecard with pop dots.

And you’re done! It’s simple and easy.

Well, I’m going to miss you guys. Until next blog week…

- Kay
