I made this card for my father-in-law's birthday using the aptly named papers 'Father Knows Best'! I'm entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge. The card and papers are from my snippets drawer so I'm also heading over to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Dies: My Favourite Things 'Fishtail Flags', Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Hexagons'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Other: Star button, black/white baker's twine, computer generated sentiment 'Harrington' font
Snippets: Black matt card, white silk card, Lili of the Valley 'Father Knows Best' paper
I die cut and embossed hexagons from snippets of paper and attached them to a piece of paper using Collall All Purpose glue to give a little 'wriggle room'. This panel was trimmed and layered onto black card before being attached to the card blank. I printed the sentiment onto white card and die cut a fishtail flag. I drew around the die onto a piece of black card to make a matt layer and then cut the shape out. The white flag was layered onto the black matt and attached to the left side of the card. To finish I tied baker's twine through the button and attached it to the left of the sentiment with Pinflair glue.
