Dad's Birthday Card

Hey hey Krafters!

I would like to share with you a card I made for my dad’s birthday. I have shared many times over that I struggle with masculine projects. I have come to terms that I struggle because I think too much! Why can’t I add a flower to a manly page? Who says flowers are only for women? On this one, I just went for what I know which is to have fun!

The papers/ticket came for DCWV’s Tattered Time and Recollections Regent Street. One thing I love about DCWV/Recollections is that even if you used a different collection, most times they go together! I used a Sizzix Collage Embossing Folder on the mat. It made the paper look distressed and have a leather look to it! I love how that turned out! The gears were cut from the Indie Art cartridge and sprayed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang (it is really golden and shimmery). I believe I cut the arrow from Graphically Speaking.

I stamped the sentiment s from a couple of stamp sets from Inkadinkadoo. I stamped the clock image on acetate. The stamp is from the Bo Bunny Timepiece Collection. Prior to embossing, I stamped some random images on the paper (it was really to clean off my stamps, but it worked in the design LOL). The flower was made from the Create a Rose Shapeability. I added a button and hemp to the center. To complete the design, I added a clock charm.

I hope you all enjoyed today’s project! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~
