Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a set of masculine cards using the Metallics Foiled Paper Variety Pack. This variety pack includes copper, gold, and silver in both Starstruck and Glossy.
I've created 2 different masculine cards using alcohol inks with the foils. One card uses Copper Starstruck and the other uses Glossy Gold.
Cutting Copper Starstruck to size, I dropped assorted colors of alcohol inks onto the foil. Then I used a baby wipe to pull up some of the color from the foil. Alcohol inks relaly change the colors of the foil Add more colors as necessary until you are happy with the color combination.
Scrunch up the panel. Carefully unwrap the panel and rub Plantinum Planet Ink over the entire panel.
Mat the Starstruck panel with brown cardstock and add to card. Add a burlap element to one corner and a corrugated panel across the center.
Stamp 2 vehicles from the Joy Clair Classic Father's Day stamp set and the Good Vibes stamp set, then die cut each. Use alcohol inks with a water brush to paint the vehicles.
Mat the vehicles with larger dies and add to the cards. Stamp phrase with Staz-On ink on a scrap of foil. Then die cut the phrase, mat with a larger die and add to card with foam adhesives for dimension.
For my second card, I used Gold Glossy foil. After cutting the foil to size, I also dropped assorted colors of alcohol inks onto the foil. Again, I used a baby wipe but this time I blended the inks rather than removing some of the colors.
Using a gears embossing folder, I embossed the panel (love the results!).
Rub a Staz On ink pad over the embossed portions to highlight the gears.
Mat the panel with brown cardstock and add a strip of burlap across the center. Mat panel with brown cardstock and add to card. Add the vehicle atop the burlap.
Stamp Happy Retirement on a scrap of foil, mat with cardstock and add to card with foam adhesives. Finally, place metal gears around the card.
Thanks for stopping by.
