It's been a great indoors day today - I finally managed to create a card for our team swaps next weekend using products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue (due out 1 September).
With Fathers Day the first Sunday of September we decided to make our Fathers Day card this month. Both cards have a masculine theme that can also be used for birthdays with a quick change of sentiment.
The first one uses DSP rather than stamps - I didn't have anything that was really suitable so used the new Envelope Paper (Pg 149 AC).
I got the template from Cambria Turnbow's
blog - it's really easy to follow - thanks Cambria. Instead of adding a tie I used the 1/8" mini brads as buttons.
Stamp - Crazy About You
Card Stock - Basic Black, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay
Ink - Momento Black
Other - Watermelon Wonder Envelope Paper, 1/8" Mini Brads, Arrows Embossing Folder
For our second card the ladies had to make a choice :) There were three options to choose from using our Decorative Masks (Pg 157 AC). I've used two from the Happy Patterns set and one from the Hearts & Stars set. With a change of colour and sentiment this layout could be used for any occasion.
The measurements for this card are:
Card base - 14.8cm x 10.5cm
Layer One (Whisper White) - 12.8cm x 8.5cm
Layer Two (Coloured card of your choice) - 12.3cm x 8cm
Layer Three (Whisper White) - 11.8cm x 7.5cm
Stamp set - Crazy About You
