Handyman Father's Day Card

With Father's Day coming up, I wanted to come up with a new card for the great men in our lives.  Last year, I did the oragami men's shirt card, you can get instructions and take a look at it here.  This year, I decided to do a punch art card with wrenches.  There are great instructions of how to construct these wrenches at "Two Happy Stamper's" blog.

This card was easy to create with a few basic punches, aluminum foil (create faux metal), the Big Shot and assorted card stocks.  I first punched my wrench pieces and sponged the edges, the I ran several layers of aluminum foil through the Big Shot in an embossing folder then with Stampin Up's Apothecary Accents framlits dies.  I assembled my layers and added another Apothecary Accents die cut along with the "Happy Father's Day" sentiment.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up's "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set and was punched out with the Modern Label punch also from Stampin Up.

For this card used the following punches:
3/4" Circle Punch
1 1/4" Circle Punch
1 3/4" Circle Punch
Stampin Up Word Window Punch
Stampin Up Itty Bitty Punch Scallop

I hope this gives you some ideas for the great men in your life,

It's a Birthday Celebration!

This card was designed for a card stack class that I was planning.  It is another one that can be used as a masculine or feminine card.  Who doesn't like a cupcake?

This was made using the Stampin Up, "Creat a Cupcake" stamp set and the "Cupcake Builder Punch".  The papers I used have are the recently retired, "Just Add Cake"

Happy crafting,
