Hello paper crafting friends! I'm up today at the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog and I have a Father's Day card to share with you, since Father's Day is just around the corner.
I started by cutting the Impression Obsession Ornate Oval Frame three times out of white card stock. I rubbed some Tim Holtz Distress Ink over the top layers and layered the frame up using different layers, to give it dimension. This die cuts all the layers for this frame in one pass so it's quick and easy to assemble. And you can choose which parts of the frame you want to use, according to your project. It can be different every time!
I took the oval center of the frame and rubbed on some Distress Inks in Peacock Feather and Peeled Paint to create the sky and ground. The fabulous Train Die is from Frantic Stamper. Just look at the amazing detail on this die!
I layered the back end of the train behind the frame so that it looks like the train is coming right out of the frame.
The ticket is from PTI's Just The Ticket and I thought this would make a great sentiment piece.
This was all layered onto two Memory Box stitched rectangles. One cut using an old map and the other in black to frame it.
QUICK DESIGN TIP: Try using papers that aren't normally made for crafting on your projects, such as old maps, book pages, pattern pieces and old greeting cards. This adds interest and is a great way to recycle!
