Durable Card for Father's Day

Hi Everyone Danie back with my second post for August.  As you know this month the team have been focusing on projects with Fall in mind.........being on the other side of the world we are actually approaching our Spring so it is with September in the Southern Hemisphere in mind I am creating today.

Here in Australia we celebrate Father's Day on the first Sunday of September.



I am going back to basics using lots of papers from the Authentique Durable 6 x 6 Paper Pad layered together for a quick make. This paper pad is perfect for male projects with manly colors, patterns and images which also match the Scrabble Tiles on the Scrabble Tiles Collage Sheet perfectly.


The image of the car was cut from one of the papers, and I inked all edges with Coffee Bean Brillance Ink and popped up the tiles spelling out DAD just so we all know who the card is for and I popped up the car too.

Speaking of cars I am now (as I write this post) about to jump in mine and head away for a Family Reunion this weekend!  I hope you all have a wonderful week and be sure to pop over and check out the Altered Pages Store as there are products being added there for your crafting pleasure regularly!

Danie xx.

  2. Great cards! I don't know about you, but I always seem to find masculine cards harder to create, so these are some inspiring ideas!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
