Karate Boy

Hello Everyone!!  I actually made this card last week for my nephew's birthday....he turned 8!!  He's a red belt in Karate, so when I saw this digi stamp at The Greeting Farm, I knew it would be perfect for him!!!  Until now I had avoided Digi Stamping - I love the feel of inking and stamping images, but this one is only in digi form, so I took the plunge!  I used X-press It Blending Card in our Canon inkjet printer and had no trouble with the ink and my Copics.  This is a simple card - after all, boys aren't that fond of frilled up cards!!

First I printed the Karate Ian image (the first one was HUGE....lesson number one, check sizing *before* printing) and coloured it with Copics (E000, E01, E11, E50, E51, E53, YR31, R22, R24, W0, W1, W3, W5).  It was cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and matted with red cut with the matching scallop.  The base is constructed of Riding Hood Red, White and some MME Lush DP.  Across the bottom I added some red grosgrain ribbon.  The sentiment is from JustRite Stamper's new Just Because stamp set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut out with the JR Nested Sentiment Dies.  I popped up the Karate Boy on foam tape and stuck him to the middle of the card.
