Father's Day card- Scrapping 4 Fun Guest Designer and a GIVEAWAY!

Happy Friday All!

Today I am honored to be a guest designer at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges.  The Challenge theme is Father's Day!
For the card I wanted to do "Sorta CAS".  The background was made using the Tim Holtz embossing folder, Rulers, from the Caps & Rulers set.  After embossing I applied Weathered Wood stain to the entire paper and Walnut Stain ink along the edges and embossed areas.  The sentiment is from Quietfire's stamp set Happy Family Days and was die cut using Spellbinders Labels 18.  The screw head brads I have had for years and it was great to finally use them!  Memory Box's die, Trellis, die cut red metal paper.  Next, two banners were cut and blue twine tied as shown.  Tim Holtz' trinket pin (first time the package was opened and I have had it since last year!) was adhered to the bow.

A big thank you to Scrapping 4 Fun for having me as a guest designer!  I really appreciate it!  And I look forward to seeing every one's Father's Day cards!

BTW, do you like the embossing folder used on the base?  Just leave a comment, become a follower and my cat Ginger will draw the lucky name on Tuesday.  He did it last time if you want to check it out.  Yep, can't get any more random than a curious kitty drawing a name!  As a heads up, the packaging is bulky so I may flatten it for delivery.  Here is the set:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you like my Sorta CAS card.  :) 
Have a good weekend!

  9. Other than putting a robot on a card, I've never made a successful male card. THIS is one of the most appealing masculine cards I've ever seen. The red lattice is just the perfect touch on the basically grey background. The juxtaposition of the curvy font and mat with the screws and hard metal look, is fantastic. Thank you for sharing this handsome and stylish card.
