I had never used the dimensional cutting pad before. I was surprised at how easy it was to use! I made a vintage card that I will probably use for my dad's birthday or Father's day. I wanted the cardboard to look like an old tin lodge building with lots of corroded paint and rust. The antlers are hanging over a mantel. There are other bits of traveler embellishments and ephemera.
The Moose antlers are from the Antler/Lantern set of movers and shapers by Tim Holtz. I used a blank card from a corrugated blank card set I have. Each corrugated card comes with an envelope too. The card is about 5 3/8" X 5 1/2". I also used some Tim Holtz Ephemera from the Expedition Pack. I used many different paint colors and walnut distress stain. It's hard to see but I crackled the antlers.
I tied some hemp cord onto my arrow embellishment and then braided it. I added some distress paint to the arrow. For the Sunshine, I used a bead and colorized it with alcohol ink pens. The little squares were cut using the Tim Holtz window die, the squares are the left-over panes.
I used all 4 left-over squares. I used the window box as my mantel.
I sewed the car charm on with a needle and black thread.
Thanks for checking out my project! I know all you visitors are expert card makers! I enjoy seeing your cards. What a gift to receive one of your cards as they are such works of art!
Have a Great Day!
