—Create a project that incorporates unconventional materials from a hardware store. Your budget was $10* and we’d love to see a photo of your receipt next to your card!
This was interesting. I did this card last because I was afraid I would not have enough time to run to the store and finish my cards. Fortunately I did finish everything, and I ran to Lowes to look for goodies.
I actually made two cards
Here is the first….can you guess what I got at the hardware store….
Here is a close up of the bird area
Can you see the blues and greens around the embossed areas?
This is the 2nd card
Want to know what I got at the hardware store…..
The first card used Metal Repair Foil Tape and the second card used paint chips. I actually did not use the washers.
Card One Supplies:
My Favorite Things After Midnight Cardstock
PTI Simply Chartreuse Cardstock
Metal Foil Tape

After I embossed the foil tape, I used both the blue and green paint on the embossed image and then cleaned it with a cloth. The excess stayed in the cracks.
