Good morning, time for a new challenge at Cardz4Guyz.
This time we are looking for your masculine cards on the theme of -
SOMETHING BEGINNING WITH P
Here's my card, which I made for a friend's birthday earlier this month.
I used one of the fab digis from Lili of the Valley called Elbow Grease for my P, for polishing of course!
I started by cutting out two and 1/2 large scalloped circles from white card and two smaller plain circles. The smallest circle I embossed with a Sizzix brick wall EF, then inked with a mixture of Rusty Hinge and Fired Brick DI. The larger of the plain circles, I edged with a brown Copic marker, about 1/4" in, the embossed one was then glued on top leaving a brown border.
After printing off my digi, I used Copics to colour and then fussy cut him out.
To make my base card, I created a hinge on one of the circles by scoring a line down one side. To ensure the card will stand up, I ensure that at least 2 of the scallops are at right angles to the scoreline.
The 1/2 circle was aligned with the base card and excess cut away as required before adding back some of the missing background to the digi with a black fine liner. My image was then added on pads.
The sentiment is actually made from a Woodware birthday stamp, I just stamped it 3 times, inked the sentiments with the same mix of DIs and cut out the letters. The Ds became Ps by inverting them and the H was capitalised with a flourish of a black fine liner. The letters were then arranged onto the background and glued flat.
So where will the theme take you, we'd love to see your take in our gallery.
There's more 'P' inspired makes by the rest of the DT here if you need more inspiration.
