Friend card

Today I have a card that was inspired by one I saw in a book and now don't remember the Author's name.  The colors are masculine but can be changed to give a more feminine feel.  There's some die cutting, stitching, and distressing involved.



Paper: Recollections- Brown card stock, White card stock; Misc.- Maroon card stock; My Minds Eye  “Stella and Rose” Mabel papers (6x6)
Inks: Ranger- Walnut Stain Distress ink
Fibers: Tan sewing thread
Other: Nicole- Glittered Letter stickers; Spellbinders Nestabilities square swatches dies

 Instructions:

1.       Cut a piece of Recollections brown card stock to 5 ½’x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼”.
2.       Cut a piece of Recollections white card stock and using the ink blending tool and Walnut Stain distress ink, ink the edges and adhere to the front of the card base.
3.       Take the pattern paper and using the ink blending tool and Walnut Stain distress ink, ink the edges and cut that down to fit on top of the white card stock and adhere using ATG.
4.       Cut 2 narrow strips of maroon card stock and using a paper piercing tool, poke holes along the strips and then use the tan sewing thread, backstitch along the maroon strip and adhere to the card front at 2 different angles.
5.       Die cut 2 medium square swatches (1 in white card stock and 1 in maroon card stock).  Ink the white card stock with Walnut stain and adhere to the left with a point on the top and then adhere the maroon piece as a square. Position the glittered letters to spell friend on top of the maroon card stock.
For the inside of the card cut a 5 ¼”x 4” piece of white card stock and adhere.

I hope you have enjoyed this project and please check back often for inspiration.

Masculine Birthday Card

Hello and again, sorry for being away for so long.  Today I have a card for the guys in your life and I used a mix of supplies to complete.  It was inspired from the sketch by Deconstructed Sketch #129 and I think it turned out nicely.



 
Instructions:

  1.   Cut card base to 5 ½”x 8 ½” from Soft Sky card stock and score at 4 ¼” and  fold.  Using the Stripes Mask and Pool Party ink and sponge on the stripes.
  2. Cut a piece of pattered paper from Studio Calico paper pad to 3 ¾”x 5” and round all the corners.  Adhere to the card front.
  3. Cut a banner from Pool Party card stock and adhere to the right, center of the pattered paper with the ATG gun. 
  4. Die cut a scallop circle from brown card stock and a circle from Whisper White card stock.  Adhere these pieces with ATG and then pop up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Place over the banner on the left side.
  5.  Place 3 wood veneer shapes in a visual triangle on the card front.
 
      For the inside of the card I stamped a sentiment in Pool Party ink on Whisper White card stock cut to
   3 ¾”x 5” and add a strip of the patterned paper from the front of the card at the bottom.
