Hello again! Welcome to another weekly class catchup. This week, we made a vintage card and giftbox for the special men in our lives – and this creation is going to my very special Dad :)

On a piece of retired Typeset Specialty DSP, we stamped the hats image from Guy Greetings with Sahara Sand ink repeatedly, then sponged around the edges with Sahara Sand ink. This was then glued on the front of the card.

To finish the card off we used Burlap Ribbon, Gold Glimmer Paper, Typeset Specialty DSP, Black Metallic Thread and a splattering of ink from a Basic Black marker….did you notice the black rhinestones too? They feature in the Halloween section of the upcoming Holiday Catalogue! ;)

This was punched and scored at 2.5″ on all sides, then the paper was flipped over and punched and scored again on all sides at 2.5″. You can find measurements and a visual guide on The Crafty Owl. Pieces of Typeset Specialty DSP that had been stamped and sponged with Sahara Sand ink, and were glued to the exposed sides of the box. The box was sealed with Multipurpose glue.

The tag shape is from a new punch in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue, but I extended the length of it by slipping the ends into the punch from the top, instead of through the side. The tag was tied onto the box with Gold Thread, and it was finished with Black rhinestones and a splattering of ink from a Basic Black marker.

Thank you for popping in to have a look at our creations this week. A big Happy Fathers Day to all the husbands, dads, and grandfathers out there. ‘Til next time x
