Here is what I created for hubby. I rubbed some of my new Tim Holtz Antiqued Bronze Distress Stain (I got at Michael's for 50% off) and his Black Soot Distress Ink on my Ranger craft mat then rubbed white cardstock around it to marbelize the page for the front of the card. Once dry, I ran it through my Cuttlebug with Tim's Brick embossing folder. Then I edged it with more Black Soot ink and attached it to the front of the black cardstock card.
I wanted to tag the brick with some graffiti, so I downloaded free graffiti fonts and free-handed my sentiment following the shapes of those letters. I used my Copic black brush pen, then outlined it with the Souffle white pen.
Then I attached one of Tim's moth images with Ranger's Glossy Accents to look like it was resting on the brick wall... inside is more distressing with the same materials and copper eyelets.
The second card I created is more clean and neat - for my Dad! I followed Christina Griffiths' video tutorial on how to make this cute shirt origami fold:
I chose some green and white striped paper and found her so easy to follow, I made this on my first try:
Behind the shirt I placed a Spellbinder's die cut and a few more for inside the shirt for the sentiment. Inside the card I also placed another die and a hand written note to my wonderful Dad.
I can hardly wait to give them their Father's Day gifts and cards!
