I made a "guy" card with it.......would you like to see?
The base card is Soft Suede.
The patterned paper comes from the Autumn Traditions DSP pack. Using my paper cutter, I lined up the opposite corners on the blade track and cut the triangles.
I dragged my Soft Suede ink pad along the bottom triangle. This is called the direct-to-paper technique. The upper triangle has its edges sponged with Always Artichoke ink.
For the focal image, I used my well-loved Lovely as a Tree stamp set. I inked up the tree line image with Versamark ink, stamped it onto Soft Suede cardstock, sprinkled on some Clear embossing powder and heated it with my heat gun until melted. Using my cutter tool, I distressed the edges and then sponged them with Soft Suede ink. I then used my brand new Well Scripted stamp set to add the "dear father" sentiment. I heavily sponged a Kraft cardstock photo corner to balance out the card.
Using the sketch as my guide, I added a strip of Always Artichoke cardstock. I wrapped it with a length of Soft Suede Polka Dot grosgrain ribbon (the backside is plain). I added a Kraft Corduroy button to finish off the card.
Are you ready to take the challenge? If you decide to make a project with this week's sketch, make sure to link it to the Stamping 411 blog using Mr. Linky. You never know if your project will be selected for the showcase on the following Friday.
Until next time.....Happy Stamping everyone!
