iPod card!

Happy Monday to you! Hope you had a really great weekend!  I got a lot of stuff done on Saturday and even made Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip cookies!  (VERY EASY to make and if you do make them - I added pecans and they were even better!!!)

On to the card! Another one I'm happy with (YAH!).  Our friend/neighbor Peg celebrated her 50th birthday on Saturday night.  A few friends went in on a gift together and ordered her an iPod Nano.  The new ones are coming out in October - so we didn't have the actual iPod to give her - so my hubby gave me a great idea to make an iPod card!

Here's what I came up with!

Obviously I attempted to recreate an iPod.  I layered papers to simulate the screen.  Then I stamped and cut out a Hero Arts apple.  I used my circle punch to punch out the side of the apple and masked off part of the apple with a post it and sponged on black soot Distress Ink.

I used a PTI sentiment and part of an arrow stamp for the reverse/play/forward keys at the bottom.
For the ear buds, I taped some thick twin to the front of the card and then cut four 7/8" circles. I dotted them with a marker to make the 'speakers' then cut a part of them off and glued them together.

For the inside - I printed off what the really one will look like and made that into a tag.  I stamped some music notes and used my Lawn Fawn letters for "It's on the way!"

This was another fun creation and I know Peg will appreciate the time and effort!

Thanks for your visit!

Wow...the artistic details in this design are amazing. Those ear buds are a hoot! You mentioned making Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip cookies, but didn't see were we could sign up for a batch :0)
