Jeff got his card done a day early, and I said "can I post it for Saturday" and he said "sure".
So here it is, I love it. He is going to send it to his Dad.
Paper: Creamy Caramel, Basic Black
Misc: Mesquite wood, some sort of metal wire, rusted metal piece, faux nails
This is 6 pieces of wood he cut, sanded and did whatever else needed to be done, and then he glued them together.
So instead of using "card"stock, would this be called "Wood"stock?
Here is the inside of the card, he made up the saying all by himself. Here you can see the 3 pieces of wood better for each side of the card.
Notice that Jeff doesn't need the "Bind it All" machine, he did it all himself.
When Jeff brought his masterpiece in to show me, I was not expecting this, I mean I don't know what I was expecting, but this is so awesome.
When I was reading it and checking it all out I said "Do you know what this card reminds me of?" and he said "no", and I said "listen to my mind, pretend we live…", and then he said "The Flinstones!" and I said "YES!!!!!" We are so intuned the two of us.
So I am gonna post Saturday now, so I can finish setting up for my class tomorrow.
Have a great Saturday, I think this will be our last cool Saturday for quite a while, when I say cool I mean under 100 degrees!
Thanks for stopping in!
Jeff…You are sooooo talented! That card is awesome. My Dad is a retired home builder/ finishing carpenter and if it's OK with you I like to use your idea for his Father's Day card.
