Father's Day at Cardz 4 Guyz

Time for a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week our theme is Father's Day

I've not done a card but a book folding using one of Crafty Hana's patterns. I've coloured the edge of the folds with blue and black inks to make them stand out. The paper's inside the covers are from Papermania's Wellington collect which I've used Faded Jeans DI to make darker.

The cover is painted with a silver metallic paint over some cogs cut from scrap card. I've added some blue wax and some mixed gilding flakes randomly over the raised parts. Holes are cut with a Cropadile and the clock ribbon threaded through

We'd love to see what you come up with for this challenge - there's plenty of scope

I'm also entering this into the following challenges
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Snippets (card for cogs)
Anything But Cute - Masculine 
Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Man In Your Life/Father's Day
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Masculine with ribbon or trim


  1. Totally amazing, Kim. I've not tried book folding but I imagine it takes absolutely ages!

  2. Fabulous Kim, I may give this a go one day xx

  3. Wow Kim, well done. I've looked at a few You tube videos but haven't got around to doing anything yet, :)
