Another great sketch from OWH this week, and as they are in need of Father's Day Cards (due to the shippers by the 21st of this month), I thought I would play with my PTI "My Hero, My Dad" stamp set and use their new Make It Monday technique. Here is the sketch from OWH:
I did however have a little mishap whilst trying this new technique from PTI and following the Cuttlebug "sandwhich" to the T!Oops, my one B plate broke in the Cuttlebug! No damage to my Impression plate or my die, thank goodness. My one B plate was extremely buckled from use, so hopefully that was the reason! And how is about this for friendship, my friend Lisa was at Michaels when this happened, so I texted her to see if they had some B plates there and yes, she purchased them for me and brought it over! Thank you Lisa, you are the best!
Without too much more rambling on, here is my card:
Paper: PTI Cardstock; Patterned Paper (Bo Bunny)
Ink: Walnut Stain DI; CTMH Dye ink (edging on the turquoise paper; Versafine Onyx Black
Other: PTI Impression plate; PTI Butterfly Die; Brads (Recollection)
I stamped the Hero definition on the bottom of the notecard and then added a strip of patterned paper above it as I needed more height in order to add the turquoise piece. The latter was made using the Book Print Impression plate over which I added the Butterfly die. Pretty neat hey! I then cut it to size, stamped the word "son" on the butterfly, added 4 metal brads and adhered it with pop dots.
I used one of the grunge elements from the set to stamp in the middle of the top half of the notecard and adhered the sentiment strip using pop dots over it using pop dots.
I like it, do you? Hopefully a father/mother in the armed forces can use it to send it to their son.
Wishing you a wonderful day and happy crafting!
