I am jumping ahead and working on a completely different special occasion card with my Card Swap Group today. Happy Father's Day
This card was fun and hard to make all at the same time, it seems I have to work extra hard at coming up with masculine cards, plus I have to search high and low for the right papers as most of my stuff is so girly I have found lol.
So the awesome, beautiful stop watch clock background is from svgcuts.com from a file called Alice's Cuddly Friends, White Rabbit has it :) that is a FREE file right now so hurry over there to get it for yourself :) I cut it from some metallic gold card stock and the embossed it with cuttlebug Textile folder. I then sponged it with StazOn black ink and love the engraved effect it gave :) the clock-face is from a printout that I then cut out with a circle die... then to make it even better I added a bling in the center to look like a diamond. very cool to be able to add bling to a masculine card without it looking just wrong :) The top two flag banners I cut and layered just using my paper trimmer and then cutting a V in the end with my scissors. The bottom one I cut in SCAL as two layers and added a shiny gold brad to match the stopwatch. The background of the card is embossed with cuttlebug clockworks folder which I inked with walnut stain distress ink directly on the folder before running through my Cuttlebug (it washes right off when you are done with running water).
Here is a view of all six of them for my swap group
