This past weekend I was able to attend the first live Stampin’ Up! Back Stage event that was held in New Orleans after 3 ling years. It was sooo much fun seeing everyone and connecting again after so long. Of course, I wanted to participate in everything, so I started working on my swaps for the first night of the event.
Of course I wanted to share them with you too! So today’s card is the first of 2 that I designed for the swap. Today’s a masculine card that I created using the Vintage Tools stamps set that uses a color pallet right from our Regals and Neutrals collections that are perfect for the guys in our lives.
This stamp set is one of my favorites since my guys do a lot of home improvements and my son has been drawn to wood working since he could walk into Sears. One of our have to stops when out at the Mall back when he was 3! (Now, if you could only see his work shop!)
The image I used for this project also reminds me of my childhood and my father, who had to plain down the doors in our new home so they were able to close and not stick. I can remember watching the little rolls of wood falling as he shaved off the top corner and tested it each time. Odd, how such little things stick in our mind isn’t it? I couldn’t have been older than 4 as I watched him.
Want to see how I created this card? I’ve done a quick video and pdf tutorial for you.
