Happy Saturday! It feels so good to be back to creating these days. I even made some FATHER'S DAY cards! I never am on time with this kind of thing so I am pretty stoked, LOL!
They were up on the Core Blog this week to so check them out HERE.
I was inspired this week by two different things.
First up, I was working with some Couture Creations dies and after my cut I realized unfortunately that my sandwich was wrong. So it didn't cut all the way through. That happens to me from time to time and I just put them in my recycle bin. WEll not this this time! I thought...I can do something with that...and I did! You have to check out their Doily dies..they are AWESOME! And versatile....
There was no way I could cut this with craft knife because it was too detailed so I grabbed my Sand it Gadget and I sanded and sanded and sanded a bit more and the "etched" image created starts to pop off the card. It's subtle but I think it works AND I saved some scraps ;)
I hope you can see that...in person it looks really cool. Subtle ...it looks almost like patterned paper. Just added some May Arts burlap string.
And next up I was in my inbox and the daily RSS feed from Scrapbook & Cards Today was there and I found this treat: Folded Shirt Card for Father's Day!
Aly Dosdal from the WRMK Design Team originally did the video so I had to try it out because I just KNEW that Core w0uld be awesome with this tutorial. I used Core Essentials for the shirt, Chocolate Box for the tie and background and a David Tutera Celebrate card for the base. I cannot get enough of these square cards! For the original video check out the WRMK blog .
I gotta tell you...I did it on the FIRST try so it wasn't that hard. You will need your Scor-Pal or scoring tool of some sort.
And here is the inside of the card. You can open it up and put something in there.
