Father’s Day

With Father’s Day fast approaching (June 16th) I have been left wondering where has the time gone?  How can it possibly be June already?! 

I’ve been working hard to finish orders and to increase my stock of male suitable cards and gifts. 

So what have I been making then?  Well I needed to add some cards to my stock, and thought I would try out a recent purchase – a Keepsake Craft embossing board.  I hunted out some masculine papers and set about embossing.  What fun, and definitely something to do in the future with my daughter.

Having made all the letters for the cards, I had an idea of adding some little embellishments, but didn’t have anything quite right, so I had another route through my crafty stash and found another unused purchase – shrink plastic! (I can hear many gasps of astonishment from experienced crafters, but I really haven’t used it before)

My mind took me back to shrinking crisp packets in the oven as a child in the 70’s and early 80’s, so I was ready to be amazed and set to work with stamps, ink pad and pro-markers. This is possibly the most fun ………. ever!

I hope you like my finished cards, I’d love to know what you think.

I am now thinking about other uses for both the embossing board and the shrink plastic.  What would you like to see?

Happy Summer Crafting

  1. Love both cards and the shrink plastic embellishments, reminds me too of shrinking crisp packets, we must be of a similar age. lol! Linda x

    • We must indeed! Do you know if there are any crisp packets around now that you can shrink? I tried using my heat tool with a Walkers packet and whilst it did shrink a bit, it just got holes in it! Very disappointing!
