Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!
It's time for the May MFT Creative Challenge! This month, the MFT Design Team is creating masculine projects for the men in our lives! I love to make masculine cards, and I am excited...my Father's Day cards for my hubby are now done!
I have two cards to share with you today! My first card features the new Rectangle Frames Die-Namics, Tool Time Die-Namics, Pegboard Cover Up Die-Namics, Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-Namics along with the new Let's Tool Around set! PERFECT for my hubs (he is an electrician).
I went with a color combo that my husband likes (he loves those Irish colors!), Gumdrop Green, Orange Fizz and White, and I added in some Kraft and Black Licorice. I used the current Mojo Monday Sketch, MOJO347 for the layout.
I stamped the sentiment using Black Licorice Ink onto a Smooth White panel cut with the Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics. I added a screwdriver (so cute right?) cut from Orange Fizz and Steel Grey. I added a bit o shine to the Steel Grey portion using a Clear Wink of Stella Marker. The Gumdrop Green panel was cut with the new Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-Namics.
I am LOVING the new Rectangle Frames Die-Namics, and cut it here from Black Licorice Cardstock. The Kraft panel was cut with the new Pegboard Cover Up Die-Namics. I added a little flag cut with the Bitty Banners Die-Namics and topped it off with a Sweet Tooth Button tied with Hemp Cord.
On the inside, I added two more panels, and stamped a strip of Smooth White cardstock that I cut with the Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-Namics with the screws and Steel Grey Ink.
My second card is for my girls to give my husband. I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch for the layout, DS152, and I used the fabulous Clearly Sentimental About Fathers and Plaid Background Builder! I LOVE this sentiment...I may have to use it for my Dad's card too!
I stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice Ink onto a Smooth White panel cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics. I added another circle cut from Orange Fizz Cardstock. The Gumdrop Green panel was cut with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics. I cut a panel of Smooth White Cardstock using the Rectangle STAX 2 Die-Namics and stamped it with Orange Fizz, Gumdrop Green and Kraft inks using the Plaid Background Builder.
I used Blueprints 14 Die-Namics to cut the stitched Kraft panel, and I used another die in this set to cut the three rows of dots on the bottom. SUCH a fun little element no?
On the inside, I used the same Blueprints to cut the panels, and stamped another sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Fathers in Black Licorice Ink.
