Daniele's Step by Step Tutorial Father's Day Card

Good Morning Krafty Friends and Followers

We hope you are all well and enjoying our tutorial's.  Are you ready for another tutorial?

Today it is Daniele's turn to showcase her tutorial for a Father's Day card.

Materials used
Man About Town Cd.
14.5 cms cream card blank
Copper Stickles
distress embossing powder...tea dye
Embossing pen
Vintage Photo distress ink
Pin Flair glue.
1 mm foam pads
gears and game spinner.
Glossy Accents.
Buttons x 3.
paper for printing on.
double sided tape.
Heat gun.

Print off the Cd, the topper, backing topper, and two of the background papers as well as a sentiment.
Cut backround paper to 13cms x 13cms and distress the edges with vintage photo.
Tear a strip from the other paper and ink edges with Vintage Photo. Using the embossing pen run it down both sides of the torn strip, try to do unevenly to create a more distressed look, if you have too much powder on brush off with a paintbrush before you heat the powder.
Distress the edges of the toppers with vintage photo and on the image topper run your embossing pen round the inner coloured circle, then use tea dye embossing powder, if you have not used distress embossing powder before wait until cool after heating it up and then rub over to realise the crystals.

Using 1mm foam pads mount the image topper on top of the mount topper, you can use Pinflair glue for this stage.
Using glossy accents glue the cog onto the topper after securing the spinner with a mini brad.
Whilst this is drying
Mount a piece of braid or ribbon onto the background paper 2cms from the left hand side, using double sided tape.
Stick torn strip on the top slightly to one side so that the ribbon peeks from behind.
Mount topper slightly to the left using Pinflair so that you can position it in the right place.
Add buttons, I cut little strips of paper for the button holes to recreate faux stitching.
Add glossy accents to the sentiment.
Add copper stickles to the edges of the card.

Thank you for stopping by Today
