Tonight I made a Father’s Day card for my husband of over 33 years. When we were in Branson in April, we went to a stamping store (Unique Impressions, where I won $50 worth of Northwoods stamps!) He “made” me get some copper sheets and a mini torch. I figured nothing better to use it on than a card for him.
I cut a piece of the copper 2 inches by 5 ¼ inches. I embossed it with my Cuttlebug Script embossing folder. Then I used the “torch” (which is pretty much like a lighter, except hotter, I believe) to discolor the copper. I mounted it on some slightly textured black cardstock which I had cut to 4 1/8 by 5 3/8 inches. I added a couple copper brads in the corners and adhered it to the ivory cardstock. I cut the smaller piece of copper and embossed it with a Fiskars texture plate and discolored that with the torch, too. I stamped “Happy Father’s Day” on vellum and embossed it with detail black embossing powder and attached it to the copper with two more copper brads. I mounted the sentiment piece to the card with Pop Dots. That’s about it – pretty easy card.
Thanks for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
