Ready for Fathers Day with Stampin Up!

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.
