So even though my original project wasn't exactly right for the challenge, I want to share both of my projects with you today. Here is the sketch . . .
And here is my masculine card . . .
I used kraft cardstock by The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) for the base, the patterned paper is from a KI Memories stack that my hubby got me for Christmas. The colored cardstock is from DCWV. I also used Stickles 'Platinum' and 'Silver', twill binding, a vintage wooden button and brown bakers twine from my stash.
The old pickup and sentiment were cut using my Cricut Expression and the Nifty Fifties cartridge. The #59 on the side of the truck is actually the age my hubby will be this year! I love the pickup, and love how it turned out!
And here is the box that I altered . . .
I used Cosmo Cricket "Garden Variety" papers, a heart shaped paper doily, and a flower made of ric-rack and a button. I also trimmed the edge of the lid with twill binding and more ric-rack.
The 'Mad $' was cut using my Cricut Expression and the 'Simply Sweet' cartridge. The ricrack flower was made by cutting a circle of felt, then gluing the end of a length of ric-rack to the center. You simply go around and around, gluing as you go until the circle of felt is covered. It's very easy, but takes a few minutes to complete.
I hope you have enjoyed these projects! Please go over to the Unscripted Sketches blog and give this week's challenge a try . . . we would love it if you would join us! Be Joyful, Friends! Becky
