Card For Dad Featuring The Hedgehog Hollow June Kit

 Here's my first project for The Hedgehog Hollow design team and I'm featuring mostly products from the June card subscription kit.  This includes cardstock, dies and stamps included in the kit.  Let me share a few key tips on how this A2 sized card came together.

First, I used my stamp positioner and positioned my black cardstock in the corner.  After stamping my steel cut background stamp with grey pigment ink, I picked up my cardstock, turned it clockwise 180 degrees and re-stamping the same image.  It gave a 3D effect that I really like.  Since it was pigment ink, I misted with my water mister to fade the color even more, blotted dry then heat with my craft heat tool to dry.




For my "Dad" sentiment, I cut the word 3 times with the white cardstock included in the kit, using my manual die cut machine.  Next, I glued all my layers together to give more dimension and popped up with thin strips of foam tape.  I also trimmed a piece of the heavyweight kraft paper include in the kit and cut with the pocket die, then embossed with a wood plank embossing folder.  The pocket die is larger than I wanted on this A2 card, so I simply moved the bottom edge of the die about an inch below the cardstock, to allow for a shorter die cut.   Or you can just trim as you like for your card dimensions.

My smaller sentiment was stamped with the LDRS Creative Raven hybrid ink that was included in the March subscription.  Next, I popped it up with foam circles onto a larger piece of white cardstock.  Ribbon trim and silver foiled black foam circles finish off the embellishments.  The foiled circles remind me of nails hammered into that kraft, woodplank die cut.  What do you think?




This is such a fun kit this month.  Alexandra designed all the stamps and dies for this kit which makes it extra special.  They are exclusive products, only to subscription kit members.  Don't forget, regular subscribers get a free bonus item each month.  The bonus item in the June kit is from the new Arabian Nights collection from Tonic (Copper Blush/embossing powder).
