Our Father!

Father's day is almost upon us here in the UK, and for those among you short of inspiration, you may get a creative kick start from the fab new collection of free downloadable papers created by our ace graphic designer Nicola. Follow this link to find out all about them.

I made a really simple card using the papers and a Framelits die set from Paula Pascua'ls Fresh Moments collection, namely Hexagons - 658609.

 I started by choosing my papers and cutting out 5 hexagons using the 3rd smallest Framelits die in the set. Next I folded a dark blue (30 x 15cm) and ivory (28 x 14cm) in half. I used vintage Photo and Old paper Distress ink pads to deepen the colour around the edges of the die cuts and ivory card before mounting them together.

I trimmed around the edges of the hexagons in the top right hand corner and mounted a rectangle of the moustache paper inside the card before sealing around the edges to form a pocket. I decorated the edges using a pattern makers wheel to form rows of dots which I joined using a fine line marker pen to give a stitched effect.

Finally, I cut around the printed tag and distressed the edges with a Faded Denim Distress ink pad before attaching an eyelet through the hole and threading with twine and string before popping the assembled tag into the pocket
