wednesday...Heartfelt Creations

Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!

Today I have a card I made using the newest collection-My Guy Collection. I just love these manly stamps and couldn't resist making a masculine birthday card.

Heartfelt Creations:
HCPC 3458 Western Collage Precut Set
HCPC 3461 Western Sentiments Precut Set

Other: My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found-Sunshine, Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Embossing ink), Ranger Embossing Powder (Copper), Marvy Uchida Heat Embossing Tool, StazOn Archival Ink (Timber Brown), Tim Holtz paper distresser tool, Crafter’s Cord True Hemp (Camouflage), brown button, brown ribbon, cardboard, sewing machine

I made this card very simple since it is a masculine card and I used the MME Lost and Found Sunshine Collection because I loved the yellow with the distressed brown cardboard. Distressed all the edges and inked them with Vintage Photo. I added a brown ribbon and a piece of cardboard. I finally heat embossed the image and distressed them paper too. I pop dotted this image and wrapped hemp cord around it and finished it off with a button.

Here's a close up picture of the card:

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Cut a 12x12 paper down to 5”x12” and fold in half. Cut a brown cardstock down to 4.75”x5.75” and your pattern paper to 4.5”x5.5”. Distress the edges with Tim Holtz tool and ink all the edges as well.Machine stitch the pattern paper onto the brown cardstock and adhere to card base. Cut a piece of cardboard to 2”x3.75” and ink the groves to give it dimension. Run a vertical ribbon from top to bottom of the card through the middle. Add the cardboard to the center of the card. Heat emboss using copper embossing powder the hat, rope and boot image on a cream cardstock. Stamp the sentiment on the top right side of the embossed image. Cut down the image and sentiment to 3”x3.5” and distress the edges. Use brown cord and wrap around the bottom of the image three times and secure with tape in the back. Add a button on the bottom right corner and tie a bow on it.
