As I have used lots of odd snippets of card below I'm linking to Pixies Crafty Workshop # 327
I haven't played in such a long time. Slap on wrist.
I had a request for an 80th Birthday to be made for a friends Dad. The brief was to depict carpentry as that had been his profession. I'm always up for a challenge so this is the card I made for him.
I decided to make the front of the card look like a workshed and used my score pal to create the tongue and groove effect. The keyhole was a brad from my stash. I created the door and window frame adding acetate behind the window. The windows were made using a small square punch. Hinges were made from brown cardstock and cut to shape. The 80 numbers are from a Tonic numbers die cut. I cut out 3 times each one and glued together and then finally to the door. Sign says Dads Workshop which I created in word and printed out.
Tools hanging up are attached with french knots to represent the hooks they are hanging up on. Cans of paint are all stacked up and attached to the back of the card with 3D pads. Oops one of them spilt whilst I was doing that and left a stain on the wooden floor !! I used a piece of hessian for the mat on the floor and had a few bits of the string from creating the fringing so wound them into a small ball of string which is on the work top. Sentiment is by Woodware From their 'Just to say' clear magic stamp set. The cat is from Gorjuss Ruby stamp set by Santoro. Oh and I left the door key on the workbench so who ever is last out can they lock the door please!.
