Manly Mondays Week #6

Although I totally enjoyed making this card I found it quite challenging.  Getting the letters to come of the die properly was quite time consuming, never mind gluing them down in a somewhat straight manner!   

I started with a piece of Night Of Navy cut at 11 x 4 1/4.  Scored that on the long side at 5 1/2. Then I cut 2 pieces of Bella Bleu Designer Paper at 5 x 4.  On one of those I embossed the fish from Nature Prints in Night of Navy Craft Ink, covered it in Clear Embossing Powder and heated with the Heat Gun.  Next came the fun part!  I used the Stampin' Up Decorative Strip Billboard for the letters, only using the lower case.  For the outside of the card I did those in Night of Navy, for the inside I did them in Bella Bleu. Once I glued down the letters for the front I added 3 Rhinestone Brads from the Ice Circles collection. Rounded the corners with the Small Corner Rounder Punch and adhered to the Night of Navy with Sticky Strip.  Now, to the inside.  

As mentioned the letters were cut using Bella Bleu.  The other 5x4 piece of Bella Bleu was adhered to the opposite side.  

The kids have had a fairly good week! Apart from the shedding, OMG!!, you can sure tell that Spring is here.  Sorry no new pictures of them this week.  We are too busy vacuuming :) :) 

A La Prochaine!
