This is a card I made for Father’s Day and also to participate in “the SoShelli.com Creative Challenge” which has “Father’s Day projects” as the theme for this month. Since I didn’t have a stamp that has the greeting I wanted, I had to improvise a little bit… I used the words from “Petite Pairs” stamp set and rearrange some of them so it would say what I wanted!
I’m really happy about how this one turned out! I wanted to do a “shaker frame” with some screws, nails and bolts inside, as it’s really a “guy” thing!!!
The hammer is from “Every Little Bit” set. I colored it with the markers and used the blender pen to add some shadow… The wood planks were stamped using the “Woodgrain” stamp with Early Espresso ink, on Crumb Cake card stock. I sponged the edges with Early Espresso to add some dimension.
Now for the inside, suprise!!! Here’s what Dad built with some wood, screws and nails!!!
There’s 2 brand new products that I used and that’s a little “Sneak peek” for the new catalogue. Can you spot them? The leaves were made with a stamp from Betsy’s Blossom set. Make sure to check my blog for some more sneak peek this week!!! The “you’re the best” is also from re-arranging some words in the Petite Pairs set and the “Love you” is from a brand new set called “Itty Bitty Banner”. This set is so cute and versatile, I’m sure you’ll see it many times in my future posts!!! I couldn’t resist using the “Bigz L die Peekaboo frames” for the window. I used an “happy face” from the Every little Bit stamp set.
