Happy Birthday Dad

Posted by Annette Crawford on 18th Nov 2017

I was lucky enough to spend some time demonstrating in the Krazy Kreations Booth at the Ontario, California Stamp and Scrapbook Expo.  It was so fun sharing the passion I have for all the great products and techniques that Krazy Kreations offers.  I also got to spend time shopping in their booth!!  I was inspired by some of the more masculine papers and wood embellishments and was ready to start creating as soon as I got home.  I hope you enjoy this masculine card.

I used a white card base, but covered the entire front with the beautiful Paper Accents Pearlized Cardstock - Metallics in the grey/blue color.  It coordinated beautifully with the Authentique Rugged collection.  

  1. Card base is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
  2. The small rectangles are 1 7/8" x 2"
  3. The large rectangles are 1 7/8" x 3 1/8"

I love to add elements to give dimension and texture to a card.  I had some twine and some small metal embellishments in my craft stash, but wanted to highlight the cool gears from Krazy Kreations.  I used a brad to stack the gears to give extra dimension and used glue dots to adhere to the front of the card.  I also added the boarder stickers on the small rectangles to add some interest. 

I really enjoyed designing this masculine card.  It seems we always struggle to create for the Men and Boys in our lives.  I hope this inspires you to use the cool wood and chipboard embellishments that Krazy Kreations carries!
