My Zing has been a little poorly sick but the fantastic peeps at KNK are sorting it all out for me ‘cos that’s the way they roll :) It did mean however that I didn’t have a cutting machine to work with when I made my Father’s Day Card so I had to put my thinking cap on. My Dad does love a bit of glitter at Christmas, don’t we all?, but I challenged myself to make a non-Christmas-y yet masculine Father’s Day Card and this is what I came up with:
I picked 3 of the most masculine colours of glitter I had in my stash – black, green and a white with a hint of green. I cut a panel of white card then added a strip of double sided sticky tape at the top and added glitter to it, I brushed off the excess then added the next strip of tape and used the next colour of glitter and so on. As long as you burnish the glitter into the tape with your finger you shouldn’t get any cross contamination of colours as all of your tape will be nice and covered.
My next challenge was the lettering, all I could find in my stash were mismatched chipboard letters, one was blue and the other two were cream. To make them all uniform, I covered all of the letters with some black permanent marker then added a generous coat of liquid gloss to give them some shine, sorted! :)
