These are two cards I made for men for birthdays or Father’s Day.  (All items used are from Stampin’ Up unless otherwise stated)

Both cards are 5 1/2″ x  4 1/4″

The truck is from the stamp set Countryside

Mats are 5 1/4″  x  4″  in Very Vanilla Card stock  (CS)

The top card uses the Argyle embossing folder on Core’dinations CS  (More about Core’dinations CS below.) The bottom card uses a piece of DSP from Comfort Cafe .

These mats measure 5″ x 3 3/4″

I used linen thread and wrapped it around the card three times and either tied in a bow (top) or put through a button and tied off there.

The truck was stamped with VersaMark on a piece of Very Vanilla CS measuring 2″  x  3 5/8″.  I then used Early Espresso embossing powder on the image (don’t forget to use your embossing buddy!)  to heat emboss it.  After I was done heat embossing it, I colored the apples and baskets with coordinating Stampin’ Write Markers.

On the inside of the card I also put a piece of Very Vanilla CS for my sentiment.

*******************************

OK more on Core’dinations CS.  This is paper that is basically two colors.  The outside layer is one color and the inside layer is a  coordinating monochromatic color.  To bring out this color, sand it using a sanding block, tear it, or distress the paper.  Isn’t it awesome?

Well, I hope you are having a great day and get some time to craft some cards or scrapbook pages today.  Until then, happy crafting.
