CTMH - Let Your Light Shine

Pin It
Today I want to show you one of the cards we made in this week's card class.  Believe it or not, Father's Day is creeping up on us and this would make a fabulous card for that special guy in your life.  It would also make a great birthday card.

To make the background, I used two of Impression Obsession's Cover-a-Card stamps - Newsprint and Canvas.  I stamped the first using Walnut Stain ink and then went over it with the Canvas using Vintage Photo.  I also used the Vintage Photo to ink the edges.  I love the visual texture you get with these stamps.

I also dug out my crimper and used it on a piece of kraft cardstock and then inked over the raised bumps and edges with Vintage Photo.  The focal image was stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and adhered to the card base with some foam dimensionals.

I love the way this card came out, especially since I usually have such a hard time with masculine cards.  I can guarantee I will be making several of these and keeping them in my stash.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets - CTMH Perfect Day; IO Cover-a-Card Canvas and Newsprint
Paper - PTI Cream, Dark Chocolate, Fine Linen and Kraft
Ink - Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo distress inks; Versafine Vintage Sepia
Chocolate Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
