For SC219 Sketch Challenge, and later will be mailed to my nephew for his birthday.
My nephew works and plays with computers. I wanted the card to have a masculine feel, so I used industrial-styled backgrounds. I used gold ink on the circuit board layer. The screws holding the cake layer in place are faux. I made them look like Robertson screws. (If I had a way to make a hexagon, I would have made Allen screws. I have a star-shaped punch, but it is a 5-rayed star, not a 6-rayed star, so I could not make a Torx screw. Nerds, and those who love nerds, will understand all this.) Needing something else, I stamped a 25 (the age he will be on his next birthday) on a gold oval, and added faux rivets. It reminds me of a serial number plate.
The cake was colored with Prismacolor pencils, dipped in Odorless Mineral Spirits. The cake layer is popped up on dimensional foam dots.
