Hi there Krafters!
I am really trying to use every product that I have at least once. I finally pulled out my Fiskars crimp tool! Here is another simple card for Father’s Day.
For the base, I used Paper Trey Ink Kraft paper. I also used that cardstock in place of ribbon and to mat the stamped image. I used the DCWV Guy Stack for the pattern paper. The patterned paper is matted on DCWV plain cardstock. This card, I wanted to do something out of the norm since I did use my unloved crimp tool LOL. I stamped the diamond pattern with Antique Linen ink on the kraft cardstock. I took Stampin’ Up’s Close to Cocoa to distress the edges of each layer and also used this color to stamp the sentiment. I put faux stitching on all of the kraft pieces. To finish off the card, I added to buttons and floss….
Thanks for looking!
