Hi there crafty people, happy Monday! I hope you all had a fab weekend. Today I’m sharing my card for the current Male Room Challenge ( https://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.com/ ) which is to include an unexpected item.
I struggled at first to think of what I could include and then got some inspiration from my favourite drink…. diet pepsi! So I cut into a can and washed it out before die cutting a square and then embossing it. I have to admit it was very sharp but once I had die cut the square it was much easier to handle and I really like the embossed effect. I used some of the super sticky red tape to fix it to the card and mat and layered it with some blue and black cardstock.
I used dies from two sets to make the embellishments for the card, the sentiment (My Hero) from the Xcut Mr Mister text set and the tools from Marianne Design Creatables.
I used paper piecing with the tools and sentiment and arranged them onto the card, using foam pads to raise up the sentiment.
I hope that you like my finished card, I’m looking forward to seeing all the other unusual items used in the challenge!
