This is my first post for Fresh Brewed Designs. I am a guest DT for the summer months and
I AM EXCITED! LOL.
Heather has a wonderful challenge blog (Fresh Brewed Challenges) with different challenges being posted all month long. Today we are starting June off with "It's a Guy Thing". Make a card or project for a guy and enter at Fresh Brewed Challenges. You don't have to use a FBD image but we would love to see one (and it is worth a second entry)!
Go to the FBD store, do a little shopping and then get creative! I made a gift card holder, just perfect for a
The Fresh Brewed Design digital stamp that I chose is called 'It's all Good". Isn't that the truth!
The background is silver mirror card run through my diamond plate CB embossing folder. Looks just like the metal on the tool box in the back of those work trucks that you see!
The whipped cream even has liquid applique stuff that puffs when you heat it. Looks pretty real!
The "embellishments" in the lower left corner are some kind of washer (I call them sprockets) from my local hardware store. I can't make a card without some embellishment. Ribbon and flowers didn't seem right! hehe The images are coloring with copic markers and layered onto a glossy black "table" top.
Inside has the same embossed mirror cardstock except for behind the gift card pocket. That is left plain kraft card stock so there is somewhere to write. The sentiment is from Create with TLC. It is cut out with Spellbinders and placed on a glossy black matt. Just add a coffee shop gift card and TaDa, you have a perfect gift for that hard to buy for guy. (They all love coffee!)
