I hope you all had a restful Easter weekend. Here in New Zealand we had a ‘staycation’ weekend as we are still in our lockdown. That means no ‘Sunday drives’, no shopping (other than for groceries), no going out with family or friends just staying in our ‘bubble’. So that’s what we did – I ended up reading three books 🙂
We had a number of birthdays again this month at work – mainly guys – so here are the cards I created.
The Country Club DSP on page 47 of the Mini Catalogue has golf themed designs on one side and on the other a range of argyle and stripped designs. The argyle and stips were perfect to create ‘shirt’ cards – all you need is a piece of DSP that means 4″ by 6″, a couple of folds and you have made a shirt.
For this card I’ve used Terracotta Tile as my base and dry embossed the front using the Stone 3D Embossing Folder from Sale-A-Bration. The ‘buttons’ are some retired brads I found I still had :).
This one is adhered to a Call Me Clover base that has been embossed with my ‘go to’ folder – Subtle. This has got to be my most used embossing folder – love it. Do you own this one? If not I would recommend you add it to your next shopping list.
You all know yellow is my favourite colour – I couldn’t resist pairing this stripped shirt with a Pineapple Punch base. This time I’ve used the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Have you noticed the simple sentiment stamp that I’ve used for all these cards? It’s from the Label Me Bold set on page 36 of the Mini Catalogue. Once stamped in the coordinating colour on scrap card stock I punched it out using the Classic Label punch and trimmed off the ends – perfect.
Check back tomorrow to see some other masculine cards I made with this DSP.
Stay safe until next time …
