Happy Tuesday and welcome to Erica's Card Creating Tuesday! Today the Design Team is happy to show you some Fathers day cards so you have no excuse not to get a jump start on making some of these for dear old dad. I am going to show you 2 different cards that I have created, so here we go......
I cut the frame from core'dinations Distress collection and inked the edges with walnut stain and tea dye inks from Ranger.I love to add texture to my dies so this time I used brown fun flock on the cattails. This is a great product and adds dimension especially a realistic look to this cut. I decided to add some Tarnished Brass crackle paint to the frame edges to add a little definition from the background paper.
By the way, if you would like to purchase some of the products like the ones I have used here, you should check out Ericas' Store. She has all the latest products AND, this month she is giving a 33% discount in her store for everything but Provocraft. All you have to do is add the code 33 at checkout. How sweet of her is this!!! Just another reason why you should shop early and get those cards made, lol.
I used some Imaginisce silver brad tops for the buttons and a brad for the top "button". The square tags on the sentiment was cut from the Imagine More cart in 1.75" and also 2". I just popped them in my Xyron 2.5 create a sticker and now the tags were done. Once again I used a rub-on for the sentiment and the faux stitching. The cream card stock mat was embossed with a herringbone pattern and my cuttlebug. Does that brown strip look familiar? It should, it is the last piece from the cattail background paper from the other card.
I hope you all have a wonderful week. Now that your Mothers' day cards are done start those Fathers' Day cards NOW. Be sure to pop back over to Ericas Room and see what the rest of the designers have to share with you today.They are so talented and their projects are always fabulous!
