Fathers day card and first project post !

 Here is a Father's Day Card I made for my card club.  The pocket knife is a retired Stampin Up stamp, as well as the "my father".  The card base is a burgundy cardstock, I used the same paper as my mat behind the stamped knife, the strip at the bottom which I ran through the crimper and a small amount punched out behind my sentiment with my modern label punch.  I used a cream distressed paper as my first layer, the strips behind the image, the image square and the sentiment which I punched with my word window punch.  The next layer was a designer sheet that I found when cleaning out my stash.  I sponged the edges with crumb cake ink from stampin up.  Then added the all 10 little brads to give it kind of a riveted look.  I am happy with the overall masculine look and feel.

 I  dedicate this site to the pursuit of papercrafting, be it scrapbooking or cardmaking, artwork or 3-d projects.  This is to be my journal of what I will create and share. My goal is to post at least once a week, my wish, is to share my love and enjoyment of my hobby.

Welcome to my journey I wish us a pleasant ride.
