Cute Card Thursday / Do Crafts Challenge - Tearing and Ripping



I have entered the above card for the docrafts and Cute Card Thursdays challenges where we were asked to use a tearing and/or ripping technique. This is the result:

Materials:

White cardstock - medium weight (in order to use in printer)
Whispers Strokes (Black Felt Pen could be used too)
For Him Paper pack- Papermania
Ink it up Brown Pigment ink
Clear embossing powder
Robot Clipart

Tools:

PC and Printer
Microsoft Publisher
Heat Gun
Edging Scissors

How To:

  1. Tear the edges of a square robot sheet from the For Him pack. Ink the edges, emboss and finally Faux stitch the edges.
  2. Cut a strip of the square sheet and attach as shown.
  3. Using a pc print the robot clipart (I enclosed it within a circle border and doodled as shown - my first doodle Yippee!) and sentiments.
  4. Cut around the circle using edging scissors.
  5. Attach everything as shown.
My nephew is a huge football fan but I wanted to try a different theme from last year's card. Hope he likes it!
