It’s Father’s Day here in the UK tomorrow, and I decided to use Geared Up Garage for my cards. It’s a great set, but for me, the dies are the star of the show. Who knew engine parts could be so stunning?!
You can get as creative as you like with these dies, but for these cards I kept things simple and let the dies and the champagne foil do all the work. I went with a mango melody and blueberry bushel colourway, and I love the masculine vibe in a more playful colour palette.
Hope the men in my family love their cards and enjoy our celebratory family brunch tomorrow, and wishing all dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day!! xx
Its been ages since I last inked up Beautiful Promenade. For this design, I decided to watercolour the gorgeous intricate die cut from the Beautiful Layers dies, with bermuda bay and crushed curry, and the brighter green tones you can see are where the two colours crossed over.
I wanted my flower to make an impact, and love how well the berry burst flower contrasts with the background yellows and blues.
My ‘Sending Love’ sentiment comes from the Well Said Bundle. I’m such a fan of die cut words and keep finding reasons to use these dies on all my projects! This bundle is such a great investment and with so many word and phrase combinations, the possibilities are endless.
Though this design is a bit different, it’s definitely growing on me and I like how all the colour on the card is contained within that die cut frame. Next, to try different colour combos! xx
