Bendi Card

 This month at Die Cut Diva's is our great sponsor is-


and our theme is Masculine/Men/Boys!

Here is my project-



This is the first Bendi card I've ever made, and I followed a tutorial out of a British magazine called Cardmaking & Papercrafting. I had to change a few things to suit my taste, but it's definitely a guy card. Here are the materials I used to make this card-
  1. Dies: truck (Impression Obsession), clouds (Impression Obsession), grass (Frantic Stamper), hills (Frantic Stamper Stitched Scene Builders, or these), banner (My Favorite Things), trees, sun (Cricut).
  2. Paper: solid greens, sky (Michaels), big dotted, striped cardstock (Coordination Brights), trees, clouds, truck, clouds (scrap stash).
  3. Stamp: sentiment (Stampendous Birthday Assortment).
I love the way it sets up and doesn't fall down, and I put the white backing on so I can write a note to the recipient.

Thanks for visiting!

Trucks at Dies R Us!

Welcome to September, and our sponsor this month at Die Cut Diva's is-

and our theme is Masculine/Men/Boys!

Here is my project-


My husband is a gear head. Which means a lot of our friends are gear heads, so an old truck on a birthday card is pretty cool to them. They LOVE the riveted metal look. In fact I made 50 car cards for a gal who wanted plenty of guy cards. I asked her how long she thought the cards would last, and she guessed maybe 2 years! Whew!

Here are the materials I used:
  1.  Dies: truck (Frantic Stamper, Bob's Truck), sentiment (Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday Border Die).
  2.  Paper: gold, silver (Tim Holtz Kraft-Core metallic collection 6 x 6; black, light teal, teal cardstock.
  3. Embossing Folder: Riveted Metal (Tim Holtz Sizzix Texture Fades).
