Karate Kid

The new challenge this week at Polka Doodles  Digi Choosey is all about the men in your life, be it father, Son, Husband or just a friend, we want to see a project 'For a Male'.

For my DT inspiration this week I have made a Well done/Congratulations card for my 6 year old son 'Dexter' who has recently started Karate lessons and is due to take his 2nd grading exam in a couple of weeks.

I have used Karate Boy from Work & Play 7.

I started by Coloring up his Karate Belt to match the colour belt that will be awarded if he passes with Copics and matting onto a yellow background.

Then I found a Karate belt in the Silhouette Store and also cut that in yellow and white.

I wasn't sure how to incorporate it into the card, but after a little experimenting, I created a Karate Jacket with a white card Blank.

To finish I added a vinyl sentiment, also from the Silhouette Store.

Fingers crossed he passes!
