Card Making with Seniors - April - Measuring Tape
This is my masculine card for this month. I found a wood background graphic on line. I then altered it some with photo editing software to make it bolder. I printed it on warm beige card stock. I was trying to match the measuring tape. I did apply some color to the background with a pale pencil crayon. I trimmed it to 4.00 x 5.25 inches.
I cut the paper measuring tape into 6 inch lengths. I adhered the tape on the diagonal and taped the ends to the back of the background.
I printed greetings onto a kraft card stock and then cut them out with one of the Stampin Up framelits from the Apothecary set. It was then adhered to the card front with 2 tiny black brads.
I decided to add a hammer and nails to my sample I put together after the class. I think that worked out very nicely.
Into card box it goes!
