It's Monday Montage time! And I'm so happy you're hopping with us today! I have my masculine card class coming up this week, so I've been making cards that can be used for Fathers Day or a masculine birthday/thinking of you card. And these cards feature two techniques that are so fun!
The first technique is oh, so cool! I just knew all those gears in the Geared Up Garage bundle needed to be rusty and old and amazing! so I searched Pinterest and found a faux rust tutorial by Kim Fee! It is so fun! And it is incredible that Crumb Cake Cardstock can look like rusty metal!!! I didn't do as many layers of ink and clear embossing powder as Kim suggests in her tutorial, but I love the results just the same!! Here is a closer look at the first card:
Sooo, I went a little crazy with the faux rust (because I love it so much) and decided to try the floating frame technique. Have you seen this technique? It is so fun and has quite the "wow factor". And you get to make two cards at once which makes the effort even more worth it! Also, there is a very unexpected household item that makes the floating frame technique so easy.....Glad Press 'n Seal!! And this technique requires a lot of dimensionals!
Here is the second card that I made with the cut out piece from the first card. This one came together in a snap!!!
And just for fun, here is a close up of the amazing "rusty" gears.
