Hello there crafty people! I hope you’ve had a good week and enjoyed the weekend – they just go by so fast don’t they!! This is a speedy post this week as I thought I would share the Father’s Day card that I have made for my kids to give to my husband next week. I really struggle with men’s cards generally and didn’t know what to use. Then I remembered a kit by Craftstyle that I got from Create and Craft a while ago. In it there are loads of fun, bright images from aliens to animals to sealife creatures to robots. These are not die-cut so you cut out the main image then you can decoupage it up as you like with what’s left on the sheet. You also get the backing card for each image aswell so it all co-ordinates perfectly. I have made some lovely kids cards with this kit, and let’s face it, most men are big kids anyway right? So that’s why I picked this image – a funny little alien with the sentiment ‘To an ‘out of this world’ Daddy’ which I whizzed up on the laptop. Yay, job done! Just added some silver mirror card here and there for the stars and used Glossy Accents to give him shiny teeth, eye and claws (nails?!). Well that’s it for this week, thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fab week ahead. Take care – Karen 🙂
I used:Craftstyle Cut and Create Bumper Kit, Silver mirror card, Glossy Accents, Spellbinders star die, Spellbinders Circle die, Sizzix banner die,Kaisercraft banner die and lots of foam pads!
