Nailed It

January 28, 2017

Well maybe!  Here is a card I created using the Urban Garden product suite and co-ordinating products.   If you check out the Occasions Catalogue on page 46 and 47 you will see this all the beautiful products that make up the Urban Garden product suite.  But, if you turn the page to 48, you will see the Nailed It product bundle which co-ordinates so well.  I think we are lucky, this is one of the nicest “male” suites we have carried for a while.

I used my trusty sketch book to come up with the layout.  The colour scheme is always easy because I just use the colours from one of the Designer Series Papers, in this case the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.005

I attached Very Vanilla card to scored and folded Basic Black card.  For the next layer I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla card using the Hexagon Embossing Folder and attached it to Basic Black card and then the card front.  I ran a strip of each of the designs in the Urban Underground Designer Washi Tape across a piece of Very Vanilla card, attached it to Basic Black card and then the card front, making sure to cover the bottom of the embossed Very Vanilla card.  I cut the hammer and the screw driver images from Smokey Slate card using the Build It Framelits Dies.  I stamped the Hardwood Background onto Crumb Cake card using Soft Suede and cut the two images once more, this time cutting the “handle” section and attaching over the Smokey Slate images.   006The images are attached to the embossed section of the card.  I cut the banner using the framelit in the Build It Framelits Dies from Basic Black card and once more from Very Vanilla card.   I stamped the greeting from the Nailed It stamp set onto the Very Vanilla frame, attached it to the black frame and then to the card front using dimensionals.  You have to be careful with this die because this die actually cuts two pieces, the piece the size of the Very Vanilla card and a piece the size of the Basic Black frame that you can see.  You can remove the outer edge quite easily, so if you want to mount them together you just need to be gentle so they don’t come apart.

To decorate the inside of the card I added two rows Urban Underground Designer Washi Tape across the bottom of Very Vanilla card.

Once more a simple card, but one that shows of the products in this suite very well, I think, what about you, what do you think?
