Kraftyhands Father's Day

At Kraftyhands Towers we have all made a Father's Day card with a tutorial on how we've created it. Today is my turn to show you my card. I don't have a father to make a card for so I made one for my youngest daughter to give to her Dad.

I used the Man About Town CD from  Kraftyhands to make this 8"x 8" card.

I chose elements from different pages to make up my own card instead of using one of the card sets on the disc. I used a strip of brown card though the ribbon threader.

I prepared all my mats and die-cuts from Papermania Textured dark brown card. The dies are Spellbinders Donna Salazar Cogs and Joy! Crafts Square Frame.

I matted everything up ready to assemble the card.

I rubbed Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Wax in Cast Bronze on the die-cut cogs.

I always play around with the layout before sticking anything down. I used foam pads and double sided tape once I was happy with the arrangement.

I added the sentiment before printing the insert page. It's just the sort of cheeky thing our daughter would say.

I hope you've enjoyed my "behind the scenes" look today on how I made this card. Don't forget to visit the Kraftyhands webshop for your crafty needs and the Kraftyhands Blog for more inspiration.
