More fabulous news…another new DT…Woohoo!!

Yep…it’s true…I am so chuffed to bits to be involved in my second DT…Easy Craft Projects

What a fantastic team of talented gals…I am so humbled to be designing along side them. I have my first DT card for the Easy Craft Projects which is 'For Dad'...

This is a great challenge to play as anything goes and as long as it is Dad related, you will be entered into the monthly draw to win some fabulous goodies!!

I decided on a monochromatic look with black, white and silver and used a House Mouse stamp ‘Computer Tutors’ …always a good combo for blokey cards!

I printed out the ‘Happy Fathers Day’ text in a computer font and then stamped the house mouse image over it in black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I used Nestibilities square scallop dies and cut out the image and silver mirri board…I used glitter paper from DCWV stack and printed out some binary code onto white cardstock…

The ‘Dad’ sentiment is from Cuddly Buddley…

Around all the edges of the matting and layering, I have used a glue stick and rubbed along the edges and sprinkled silver embossing powder and heated and melted…this gives a look of solder/welding around the edges…a very blokey thing!!

The inside compliments the front of the card…
...and I have made a binary code box for the card to fit snugly inside.

I hope you will come on over and join in the challenge at Easy Craft Projects Challenge #39 For some great inspiration, please go and check out the other DT creations on their blogs and get crafty for Fathers Day…
