With Father’s Day coming up in September for Australia, it is the perfect challenge to start creating your cards or project using this challenge. I opted to go for a male’s birthday card & used a set that I really like, but must admit, haven’t used it for sometime. In fact, I am really happy with the final result!
Base Card – Soft Suede – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 – Very Vanilla – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 x 2 – So Saffron – 4″ x 1/2″ or 14.5cm x 1cm
Layer 4 – Not Quite Navy – 4″ x 2″ or 14.5cm x 5cm
Layer 5 – Very Vanilla – 4″ x 1 7/8″ or 14.5cm x 4.5cm
Stamp Set – Totally Tool, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Ink – Soft Suede
Cardstock – Not Quite Navy, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Basic Grey
DSP – Well Worn
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Crystal Effects, Crop-a-Dile, Stampin’ Up! Wirte Markers – So Saffron, Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy
I inked my images with the Not Quite Navy Write Marker, stamped off once onto a scrap piece of paper & stamped onto the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock. I repeated this same step until I was happy with the look of the card. I then stamped 3 images onto scrap Very Vanilla direct onto the card, cut the images out, coloured part of the images with Stampin’ Up! Write Markers – So Saffron, Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler & set aside.
The piece of Very Vanilla was adhered to the piece of Not Quiet Navy, then So Saffron, to the piece of DSP, Very Vnailla & finally to the Base Card – Soft Suede all with Snail Adhesive.
I completely forgot to add my Silver Brads to the top left hand corner of the card, so I comprised a little. I punched out 6 circles using my Crop-a-Dile, adhered 2 to the top LH corner with Tombow, 1 to the middle of the screwdriver, 1 to the handle of the spanner & 1 to the card where I wanted to place the hammer.
The tools were then adhered to the card – as per the photo with Tombow,with the spanner being my 3rd brad at the top LH corner.
The greeting was stamped in Soft Suede onto Very Vanilla, cut to size & adhered to the card prior to adhering the final Faux Brad it.
We would love for you to join us!
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
