This weeks challenge at Hero Arts blog is to make a male card or have a male make a card.... well that's not a happenin' thing here. Hubby is " crafty challenged" . Give him a garden tool and he is in his element.... but crafty stuff- no way!. So it's up to me....
As it is Father's day this Sunday I have made a few of this card to sell at work. The tie stamp is by Rubbadubbadoo and I used the HA Ancient Brocade to make the pattern on the middle tie. Layer on long rectangles cut with my nestabilities. The sentiment is from Stamp-it. As I used one HA stamp it can be entered for the challenge.
I also got asked this week to design a card for my friend Kathy. Her husband is 65 next week and she wanted something musical for him. This is what I can up with. I found the picture of the old gramophone on the internet ( Isn't Google just great). I printed it on plain paper and over-stamped HA Old French writing, before distressing the paper and edges in Old Paper and Aged Mahogany distress inks. Matted onto a mid-brown card stock ( cut with my nesties) Used peelcraft corners. I stamped the Inkadinkadoo Flourish on one side of cream card stock, The music paper was also a download I found on the 'net which also got the distress treatment. The whole lot was then mounted onto Chocolate chip cardstock. I stamped the Happy Birthday ( from HA Petite Messages set) along the bottom.. All in all I was pleased with the card and so was Kathy.
Thanks for coming by and hope the rest of your week is great.
