Hello crafters, Kirsten here with the first of my new samples for May, featuring cards with a male theme. Actually, now that I’ve mostly finished making my samples I’ve noticed that the majority of them are quite abstract & gender free in appearance, with only a few featuring traditionally male images.
There are no step by step photos for today’s card, because it’s simple matting & layering, but I will have a few tutorials for you in the next few weeks.
The papers on this one are;
I used my finger to swipe a little Antique Bronze Sparkle Medium on to the base papers, distressing them by scrunching them up, scratching the edges with scissors & adding distress inks. I used the same SM through the Glitz Craft Hex Bubble stencil on the torn top layer. And there is actual hand sewing around the border of the top layers.
I tore the end off a kraft tag, distressed the edges, added a piece of the reverse side of the Always papers & added a die cut label with the birthday greeting from HobbyArt Butterfly Kisses
I added some buttons & a Crafts Too metal brad as embellishments, stuck everything to a 7x7 kraft card blank & drew some faux stitching with a fine liner black pen.
As well as the giveaway, we have a new blog challenge, all the details are on the challenge page.
Thanks for looking, see you next time.
