The next main event in our house that requires cards is Fathers Day.
I sometimes struggle with cards for men so it's good to get a head start.
I was having a sort out of some of my papers and decided mixing and matching papers from the 'Eastern Palace' would make a cool background. I used the Hexagon punch which is sadly no longer available BUT any punch with even sides would work...the 'tailored tag' punch would be great but i hadn't got that punch at the time of making this card.
I started off punching out lots of hexagon shapes in different papers, starting in the centre i then glued them to a piece of cardstock, like a puzzle working my way out putting the pieces edge to edge. Once at the outer sides of the cardstock i overlapped the edges then flipped the cardstock over to trim neatly along the paper hanging over.
I layered this onto my card blank leaving a small border.
From the 'Guy Greetings' stamp set i took the car and stamped it in 'Dapper Denim' ink, one of the colours in the dsp. Using the 'layering circle' framelits to cut it out i then mounted it onto another circle in 'Dapper Denim' cardstock this time cut using the 'Stitched framelits'. I like the way it gives a little more detail around the car image.
'Teeny Tiny Sentiments' provided the sentiment, stamped onto whisper white cardstock i layered it up onto 'Dapper Denim' and 'Lemon Lime Twist' all cut using the 'Classic Label' punch.
This card would be a great way to use up scraps of DSP.

I am the first to admit i have an issue hoarding crafting products, especially papers! When they come packaged and look so pretty it's hard to chop them up to use. I always end up with retired papers left over each time a new catalogue is released and they end up sitting in my paper store unused. So with this in mind i decided to start using some of them up and made a start on some Christmas cards. Santa's workshop was such a fun set of papers, especially if making cards for younger members of the family. I used a larger piece of dsp for the background but then also cut another strip with elves on to use as the main focus of the card. Mounted onto real red card and then some glimmer paper to cut the word 'Christmas' from adds a little bit of festive bling and sparkle. At least if i use up my old stash i have the perfect excuse to buy more of the new products :) If you would like to buy any current products please pop over to my online shop HERE
