The Craft's Meow Preview- For My Dad and Dad's & Grads

Hello and welcome to day two of projects using stamp sets being released from The Craft's Meow on the 21st!  These two sets celebrate the Father's and graduates in our lives and are perfect for any masculine cards as well.


First up, For My Dad, designed by Michelle Bertuzzi.  I chose to use the rotary phone image, along with one of the sentiments.


To start, I stamped each image in a different color, the stamped my sentiment in brown.


Lastly, I added a bit of brown twine to the top.

Next up, a fun graphic set designed by Kaitlyn Ord called Dad's and Grad's.  Super versatile!  I chose to use the tie image for my card today.


To start, I took a cream panel and stamped my tie image repeatedly in orange, brown and blue.  Focusing on the colors from my patterned papers.


Next, I heat embossed my sentiment in white onto my patterned paper panel, rounded the bottom corner and assembled my card.


I hope you've enjoyed today's previews.  Go check out the TCM blog and leave a comment for a chance to win one of these sets!  Have a great day!
