I have a recycle/reuse/re-purpose drawer that is bulging at the seams. When I saw that I could get rid of a few things I was ecstatic to say the least!
For my first venture "out of the box" I decided to use a piece of packaging I saved from a wallet my
hubby got for Christmas. It was the perfect size and already had the stitching done for me, hurray!
Here's the Father's Day card I made:
I embossed the leatherish piece with a Tim Holtz Texture Fade Folder. Die cut a Mat Stack 3 out of kraft CS. Stamped a tree from Father Knows Best as well as the sentiment with Classic Kraft ink. Colored the leaves with various markers and used a heart punch for the "apples" which I had to make shiny with glossy accents. Tied a little twine around the Mat Stack and adhered it with some foam tape. I also adhered the leather piece with foam tape onto a piece of Rustic Cream CS. Pretty simple I guess.
Hopefully I'll be back with some sort of remnant from something else, after all, I can't throw anything away!! Thanks for looking!
