Time for another fun Linky Party with Crafty Secrets. This months theme? Let’s hear it for the boys. Perfect timing for Father’s Day right???
This month is all about the guys in our lives! Create a masculine themed project that any guy would love. Possible themes: Fishing, Cars, mustaches, Sports, Hiking, and Father’s Day. Really get creative and do ANYTHING BUT A CARD this month.
I totally broke the rules…and made a card : ( But that’s really like me to go rouge right? Next month I will tow the line and not break the rules.
I did create a fabulous card..that is so ridiculous it made me laugh the whole time I was working on it!
Bwa ha ha Mr. Mustache Father’s Day Card!!!!! I used the vintage images and printed paper from Crafty Secrets Digital Barber Shop Kit.
A few things I have figured out about heat embossing. 1. I will always burn myself while trying to emboss something smallish…so I used a low tack tape to stick the stars to a piece of cardstock. This worked well also to work on lots of small images and keep them together. Yes..it did waste a bit of embossing medium and powder…but I’ll take that over burned fingers any day. 2. If you use a really nearly worn out medium pad to apply the adhesive….it will stick in a random sort of way and not give perfect coverage…I have found that after embossing this gives you a really cool texture. So totally an accident…but a good one I think!
I encourage you to stop by and check out the projects made by the Crafty Secrets Team…..I’ve had a sneak peek and they are so great!! Also check out the details for the fabulous prize offered for this challenge at Crafty Secrets.
