ARTISAN AWARD PROJECT # 7: FATHER'S DAY CARD
I thought it was important to show alot of variety in my projects. And masculine cards are always a little challenging for me, so I thought I'd see if I was up to the challenge. My dad was the inspiration for this card. He can build anything-including a tv! He used to make us kites when we were kids, and once he even made us a pair of stilts! I think the best thing he built was all the great memories.
I used our Cork Sheets to resemble a peg board. Then I used brads to hang tools off of it. I used the Wood Sheets for the top of the card and to make the ruler out of. I made a little tool belt out of Soft Suede cardstock-a little sanding and faux stitching, and it looked like the real deal!
