MAN WEEK~ "FATHER'S DAY CARD" with Peggy Lee

Whooo it's FRIDAY!
What a great way to start the weekend & it's 
 "FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND"!!!


Like Lynne said earlier this week...here!
(so if you are just starting today, be sure to click the link above 
to see the start of MAN WEEK!)

Thank you for joining Die~Namites Dies for....
a week of masculine inspired creations!


Here is my take on this months Die-Namites
 & Man Week Blog Showcase!

"OUR HERO"
Father's Day Card


you can find out all the details on the blog, here!

I used this fabulous die-for my card, switched it up to go with the
MAN WEEK!! OUR HERO....

(even though this dies's title is for a mom why not change it up-changing
the color of card stock or ink to manly color turn into a Father's Nest)

Let's Get Started!
I started with a piece of black card stock 4 x 12 folded in half.
Ran a piece of slate grey card stock and wood grain embossing folder
through my embossing/die cutting machine to give the card a manly feel.
Distressing!
Sanded off the top layer exposing the white core of the slate grey card stock.
(makes the wood grain come to life)


I took the Die-Namites Die "Mom's Nest" and die cut it 
out in three different kinds of card stocks.
Kraft, black and cocoa colored card stocks this way I 
could fussy cut them apart and piece back together.
(see photo below)


I had a few other Die-Namites Dies cut and in my stash...so
why not ink them up and fussy cut apart for tucking into my card.


Here are the Die-Namites Dies I used (from my stash-already die cut).

Knobby Branch    Leafy Branch

My friend Lynne Forsythe had a workshop a few weekends ago and we
got to play with some Die-Namites Dies, Perfect Paints, The Crafters Workshop Stencils.
There was a ton of leftovers-so we bagged it up and I brought it home to play with.
It fit perfect for texture on the birds nest!!!
And when you look at the card my side piece with the brick texture is actually a Kraft Tag 
we used in the workshop to collect our leftover goodness from our mats.
(use up your stash)!


I took my leftover TAG and placed it on side ways to go with this month's 
sketch...snipped off the tag pieces that were hanging off the edge.
Then started to build up the bird's nest
by cutting apart the dies and piecing them back together. You
can create a whole new kind of die cut.

FABULOUS!
(see the depth you can achieve with pop dotting your pieces)
