I made this card for an order..I die cut an oval and using the waste part I inked through it onto the base card with green and blue inks. I stamped a stampin up cricket set onto various scraps of cardstock and fussy cut the images, and stuck them onto the base card . I kept it all very simple as that is what my customer wanted, and I really like this one!Back to work this week after my holidays, and taking things very easy with my shoulder! til tomorrow….
I have a couple of Mens cards to show, so today we will start off with the side stepper card I made with some new dies from a new company, Paper rose. They are a South Australian company, and I couldn’t wait to try out the tool dies and the pegboard die. They cut beautifully, and I will be adding some more of their dies to my growing collection! The instruction for my side stepper card is on my You tube channel, you can find the link on the right hand side of my blog.The sentiment is a kaisercraft die, and the rest is just strips of cardstock to mimic the tool drawers. Til tomorrow….
The other day Nathan brought me some old floppy discs and asked if I could recycle them. Why, yes.Yes I can. Inside the plastic cover ( which I prised open with a pair of scissors) was this floppy ( the floppy in the name floppy disc) which looked to me just like a miniature record, and so this card idea was born. The papers I used were Crate paper toy box, and I made the record player needle and arm from some silver and black cardstock. there is a silver brad in the middle of the “record” and I punched a silver circle for a volume button. The letter stickers are from the same paper collection. Hopefully Nathan finds more discs, because I really enjoyed making these cards! Til tomorrow…..
I have more in this collection, but we will take a little break after todays post, and look at some other cards I have been making, and come back to these later. The paper and collectables are Sears and Son by Kaisercraft, and this is my favourite card out of all the cards I made with this 6 ” pad, and the matching collectables. I added some string, inked around all the edges, and found some googly eyes which just made the perfect gentleman!Another hot day here today, and a busy day at work so may just sit under the air conditioner and watch some t.v. before an early night tonight! Til tomorrow…
