Here's the card I made for this month's MFT Guest Designer contest over on SCS. The challenge was to create an M & M Card (Masculine and metalic!) and I think I pulled that off!
Kerry's AWESOME flocking tutorial and ran some creamy caramel cardstock through my xyron, then rubbed fun flock all over it. Then, I stamped the image again on to this. I cut the first stamped image out with my oval nestie and embossed, then cut the dog out of the flocked paper. finally, I colored the little boy on the 2nd white image and cut him out to layer on top of the dog. My nestie cut layer I sponged (with the die still on) with certainly celery and bashful blue, then I went in with a green prismacolor pencil to add some grass all before gluing down my boy and dog. This I layered on another brilliant Blue oval.
For the tag, I stamped the image on white carstock, the colored inside it using my versamarker. I added some sterling silver ep and heated. I let that cool down, then versamarked again and more powder and heated again. While that was still warm I added one more layer of ep, melted it, then stamped the greeting into the warm ep. Next, I cut the tag out and added the jump ring. I ran the twill tape through the jump ring, and was ready to start assembling!
