Ok–I was debating which card to post today and showing my hubby my selection of cards. I told him this was a great “boy card”. He said, “Is that a boy card? It looks kind of “frilly”.”!!
I told him that was fake metal….and what is more manly than “fake metal”?!
Ok–it actually called “faux patina” and I first discovered it here at Too Cool Stamping. Angie does a great video so check it out.
So–I was playing with some more upcoming SAB goodies and here is the card:
You tell ME! Frilly or Manly??
Anyhow, that is the card. I pretty much did exactly what Angie said—if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
The ferris wheel is coming in the Feeling Sentimental SAB stamp set (Jan 22nd-March 22). I used the metalic brads for accents.
You may be wondering how I got that shape of the ferriswheel. Well, I satarted with Apothecary Accents Framelits and positioned my stamped image towards the top. I cut out the image once and then RE-POSITIONED the framelit to get a symetrical, smaller cut out. Be sure to use your post it notes to hold your framelit in place while cutting a stamped image.
By the way, did you know that Micky (from the Monkees)’s MOTHER invented post it notes….or was it velcro. Pretty sure it was post it notes. I will check it out and get back to you.
Ok–looked it up. Seems I was given some bad information. They didn’t mentiion the Monkees AT ALL! But–there is a pretty interesting history there so go check it out if you have a minute here.
(****Addendum: I couldn’t let it go—I just googled it and found out that Micky’s mom invent WHITEOUT! I knew it was something I needed! Yeah for her….and to the post it note people too! Never give up on your crazy dreams!)
Ok–that is it for today.
