Shirt and Bow Tie Card

SHIRT AND BOW TIE CARD

Did you know that Monday was the National Bow Tie Day?  I did not know until it was brought to my attention by a Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com.   The hostess challenged us to create cards with bows, and it was up to us to interpret the challenge.  Well, I created this Shirt and Bow Tie Card and submitted it to the challenge.

This card is a masculine card and could be given for Father’s Day, New Year’s Day, Birthdays, and many other occasions.  The card is quite simple to make. I simply used a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of white card stock, measured and marked at the 1″ mark down from the top of the paper, and cut toward the center on both ends, leaving about an inch uncut.


I folded the cut portions to form a collar for the shirt. I added the bow tie, buttons, and suspenders (i.e., ribbon) down both sides. I attached this to a Houndstooth embossed card base. How simple!!

James 5:13-16

“Is any one of you in trouble?  He should pray.  Is anyone happy?  Let him sing songs of praise.  Is any one of you sick?  He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.  And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.  If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.”

CottageCutz Happy Father’s Day Card

Are you looking for a design for a Father’s Day Card?   I suggest a side-step card with masculine elements.  That was my choice for my card, “CottageCutz Happy Father’s Day Card“.  Why did I title my card, CottageCutz Happy Father’s Day Card?  Because I used several CottageCutz masculine dies to create my card.  The Scrapping Cottage, the maker of CottageCutz dies, has so many wonderful dies from which to chose for any occasion.  Check out its on-line store and blog.

The CottageCutz dies I used to create my card are the Fishing Pole & Boat Die, Jeep Die, Campfire Clothesline Die, Woodlands Dies, Rustic Sign & Trees Die, and Spring Grass Die.  These and other dies used are listed near the end of this post.

I was feeling lazy when I made my card, so instead of cutting card stock and scoring it manually to form my card base, I used the Our Daily Bread Designs Side Step Card Die to create my side-step card base from white card stock.  Then I cut a 3-1/2″ x 4″ piece of white card stock to attach to the back step of the base.  Using various inks, I sponged the sky, water, and grass areas.

For the back step of the card, I die cut the fishing pole and boat from white card stock, colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers, glue together the pieces, and attached them to the step.

For the second step, I die cut the tent and flag with the Campfire Clothesline Die and from red, brown, and tan card stock; glued the pieces together; and attached them to the step.  For the first step, I die cut from white card stock the jeep, colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers, and set aside.  I used the Spring Grass die to cut from green card stock several pieces of grass and attached them to the three steps.  Using the Lawn Fawn Road Border Dies, I cut the road from gray and yellow card stock, glued them together, and attached onto the first step.  Then I attached the Jeep.

Using the Rustic Sign & Trees Die, I die cut the tree on the left side of the card with green and brown card stock, attached the pieces together, and added to the card base.  I then die cut the sign from the Woodlands Dies, colored it with Copic Sketch Markers, added foam tape to the back, and attached it in front of the tree.  That finished my card.

I love the card!  What do you think of it?

Father’s Day Card – Part 2

Yesterday I posted a photo of the Father’s Day card I made for my son-in-law.  I asked for viewers to guess what the card represents.  I gave you a clue that it is something that most men want in their garage!  Here’s the photo again.

Father's Day Card - Part 2

Thanks to those who emailed me their guess!  The photo below will definitely give you the answer.

Father's Day Card Part 2

It’s a 3-drawer tool cabinet!  When you pull open the first drawer (or pull down…lol), you see tools that most men, and women, will use:  hammer, nail, measuring tape, and drill.  I certainly use these tools regularly!

When you pull open the second drawer, you’ll see a bolt, mallet, and channel-lock tongue and grove pliers.

Pulling open the third drawer, you’ll see a screwdriver, wrench, and needle nose pliers.

Father's Day Card Part 2

The three drawers and their contents are on the front part of the card and the inside contains my Happy Father’s Day greetings.  I die cut and colored with copics the tools in the cabinet.  The tools die cuts are from Our Daily Bread Designs Workshop Tools and Tool Time die sets.

Just for the record, my son-in-law LOVED the card.  I hope you enjoyed it and will leave any questions or comments in the comments section or send me an email!  Have a great day!

Color On Color Emboss Resist Technique – Happy Father’s Day

I love the art of blending inks. However, I had not tried before the Color on Color Emboss Resist Technique. After trying it, I now know that I really, really like it and will be using it in future art. The card share I have for you today features this technique for a Happy Father’s Day card.

Color on Color Emboss Resist Technique

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE COLOR ON COLOR EMBOSS RESIST TECHNIQUE:

1. Cut card stock accordingly:

8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ for card base

5-1/4″ x 4″ for 1st layer

5″ x 3-3/4″ of Whisper White Card Stock

2. Select a stamp that you want to be the main feature of the card. (I used the feather stamp; however, I think it would work best with a solid stamp with few designs within).

3. Select three colors of classic ink that are light shades.

4. Using a sponge dauber, swirl your first light color onto the Whisper White Card Stock.

5. Swirl your second light color onto the Whisper White Card Stock, and don’t worry about overlapping the colors.

6. Swirl your third light color onto the Whisper White Card Stock, and then look for places where you want to blend the colors and do that with the daubers. Don’t worry about the look too much as it will completely change when you add the darker color.

7. AFTER the ink dries, rub the embossing buddy over the complete piece of card stock.

8. Cover your selected stamp with VersaMark and stamp the image randomly on the card stock.

9. Cover with the clear embossing powder and heat set. Let it cool.

10. Swirl you dark color of ink all over the piece of card stock. You may need to do this a couple times or more.

11. Using a paper towel, rub the excess dark ink from the embossed images. Isn’t it cool how the clear embossing takes on the colors?

12. After reaching the desired colors on the colored piece of card stock, use the stamp image to create a center piece for the card.

13. Adhere the pieces together and add your desired embellishments.

14. Add your sentiment to the card.

Enjoy!!
