I 'WOOD' say Visible Image make AWESOME STAMPS :D

Hi Guys
It's a quickie mid week blog for me today..... I had planned a 2 carder for next Tuesday for my Visible Image DT day and then I woke up LOL......It's Father's day THIS one of the cards would be a tad late! DOH!

So here is my Father's Day make......

Made on a 6 x 6 white card, I cut down a piece of chocolate brown mirror board from creata for my border, then used the fabulous plank of wood from the Painted wood set made 6 planks heat embossing in wow Vanilla white on a mid brown card from hobbycraft, giving a nice grainy effect.

Lined up, stuck onto white card, trimmed and attached to the mirror board.
I then stamped again in versamark and heat embosssed the hammer and nail from the Heavy Metal set in 'Heat it up' silver sparkle, masking the hammer and embossing the handle in wow primary ebony, then for the sentiments these were from Handy get soooo many sentiments that tie in with both sets the Heavy Metal & the Painted wood or you can use alone with other images......ideal for 'Man cards' where I know a lot of people struggle with..... I stamped my sentiments in walnut stain DI and embellished with some copper eyelets, mounted onto the choc mirror board, with foam pads.
A simple card for any Dad that loves DIY or a bit of carpentry :D

Now the 'Tool time multibuy' is only £25.98 for ALL 3!
As opposed to £12.99 per set which equals £ save a WHOPPING £12.99!!!!
