Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been making a few more Father’s Day cards, which I’ll be sharing over the next few days, starting with this one using Stampin’ Up’s ‘Whiskey Business’ set. I bought this last year as it was perfect for a card I was asked to make, and it’s been carried over into the new SU catalogue so fits the bill for this week’s TGIF challenge – their theme is ‘catalogue creation’ (i.e. anything that’s in the new one). I’ve also used the sketch from The Paper Players for my layout, plus Time Out‘s theme is ‘items from inside your home’ – my son is a fan of Jack Daniels, so there are several bottles in the house although none of the whiskey is in such a smart decanter!
I started by embossing a 6×6 card front using SU’s ‘tasteful textile’ folder which is also in the new catalogue. It didn’t cover all the way down the front, but that was fine as I had already planned to add a strip of brown card embossed with the ‘pinewood planks’ folder, to look like a wooden table. Doing this also met the additional twist for Time Out’s challenge.
I then stamped the decanter and glass in ‘shadow grey’ Archival and coloured it with Pergaliner pencils. I fussy cut both pieces and attached them to the card front, and added the sentiment on a die cut oval in ‘potting soil’ Archival.
I finished by adding a few grey Glossies around the sentiment. Another nice and simple card to make – it certainly didn’t leave me needing a stiff whisky after I’d finished (unlike some I’ve attempted!) I’ll see you tomorrow with another creation.
