It's been a lovely day of nothing-ness today ... but I'll pay for that Saturday when I'm all stressed out that I'm not prepared for my Community League Ladies Night function! Oh well! It was SUCH a beautiful day today it just called for an extra long walk with my furry buddy before volunteering at the Humane Society with the kids. Such a great day!
Today I want to share with you the card I made for Father's Day ... and it is also one of the cards we are making in class this week ...
I have to give inspirational credit where credit is due! I originally planned to make THIS card .. which is a direct CASE of the one made by Melissa Kerman over at thecraftingtreehouse It's such a GREAT card!
Start by running Silver, Gold or Copper cards stock through any embossing folder - I used the hexagon folder with silver ...
I then took a sponge, inked it with Archival Black ink and rubbed it all over the embossed piece.
Finally, I buffed it with a dry paper towel (or dry baby wipe) to remove the excess black ink. This just gets some black in to the nooks and crannies of the piece and makes it look a little more tarnished.
I used the Nailed It set for the rest of the card along with the Urban Underground Designer Series Paper ...
That's it for today. Maybe I'll head down to The Cave and start on my display for Saturday night ... or maybe I'll go watch one of my 49 episodes of Coronation Street .... hmmm
Whatever you get up to I hope you have a stampy night!
