Trying to get back into posting on my blog. Got new computer system at work and when I got home I just did not feel like doing anything. This is a card that I made for my Uncle's birthday. He is 91 and flew in the Air Force. I found this set on clearance at Hobby Lobby and thought it would be perfect for his birthday card. I thought it would be perfect for my Make it Monday entry. The design for this card came from Stamper's Quest. I am on their design team and this was the sketch we were given for this month.
This was my post on Paper Temptress last week. So all the paper I used was from Paper Temptress.I am a big stamper and this card has no stamping on it. My daughter asked me to make a birthday card for her 2 year old nephew. The theme of the card is Bob the Builder. She found a tool belt card on Pinterest and asked if I could do something. Here is the link to the other card. Also from the link you can go to a link that gives you a cut file. I own a cricut but don't know how to download cut files. I went to the cut file picture and just cut and pasted my tools.
Now to my card. The base is Brown Basis. I used an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock and cut the base to 5 x 11. I scored the base at 3 1/2 from each side. The belt across the top and the pockets are Treasures Crafty Brown. The gray on the tools is Gray Basis. The red on the handles is Treasures Cardinal Red. The challenge at Quirky Crafts was fold it.
