Hope that you aren’t bored of these “male” themed cards I made for my parents… there are quite a few to come which is why I am splitting them up over a few weeks.
Today’s card again uses a glossy paper distress oxide as the background to the stamped images, however I changed it up a little and decided to cut the images out and add them to a card with a panel of distress oxide stamped with an acrylic block.
Thought this looked a little different!
I used the Half Full stamps, not used these for ages! Fun sentiments!
So about once a year my mum asks for some cards for their stash. Most of the ones she asked for she could just grab from cards already made, but I didn’t have many cards suitable for the men they send cards to… So I had to do my least favourite type of crafting… making “male” themed cards.
Anyways I made them and will share them over the next few weeks with you.
This is the first one. I used the photo paper and distress oxide trick to create a background and then used the Sky’s the Limit stamps to create the focal image and sentiment.
I decided to create interest by splitting the image up and creating the two panels. I think it worked quite well.
My friend and I had some fun crafting together and as there was only the two of us I decided to play sewing and fabrics for a change!
I have quite a few of these squares of Christmas fabrics and figured they would make some fun backgrounds.
Now I don’t do neat and tidy sewing… so they are very much haphazard in their finish, but I like it!I especially love adding in the different textures too with the hessian and the ribbons.I added stamping onto fabric for the focal images and chose different stitch types for the cards.
Although they come from a similar set of fabrics each looks different due to the different focal images and the choice of layering fabrics.
