Just a quick post tonight as I am soooo tired. I had made a card on Saturday but just couldn't seem to get myself organised to post it up! So a bit of a rushed post to make sure I get it submitted in time.
This week's Friday Mash Up was to make a Gate Fold Card and/or use numbers on the card. Well for me it was an easy decision not to do the mash up, as I realised I had no numbered stamps, or chipboard or anything really! So straight into a Father's Day card for my husband. I wanted to use his favourite colour Red, and because Cherry Cobbler goes so well with Not Quite Navy I chose that as my second colour. Quite by accident ... I mean completely on purpose ... I discovered that by sanding the card stock it gives it a faux suede look and feel. I embossed the Father's Day sentiment from the now retired Well Scripted set onto the side panels to give them some texture, and then used the same stamp as the feature on the gate. I was happy with the result and think the antique brad sets it off nicely. Hubby seemed pleased!
