Father's Day Card

Hi Guys,
Hope your all well and everything in your part of the world is going great for you! Sorry for the long delay in posting, where dose the time go lol!

Just want to share this card I made for Father's Day. I used my new Cuttlebug Diamond Plate Embossing folder and took inspiration from Leigh's wonderful Cuttlebug cards.
I was trying to emboss with tin foil and I brought loads of different brands, but found it wasn't working for me and Hubby suggested to use a soft drink(coke)can(I didn't have the heart to tell him that it's not his original idea and that I've seen it on the net somewhere but forgot all about it until he mention it lol) and presto, it went through my BigKick like butter and I LOVE the end result

So here's my card

  1. Hey Kylie - I'm sorry I haven't been by in a while - what a crazy and wild summer this has been, but Patrick is now back in school so I'm hoping things are going to get back to normal. This is a great Father's Day Card - I will have to keep my eye out for this folder. Have a great day !!!


  2. Turned out great! Love the silver background!


  3. Wow, that is fantastic Kylie, great job!

  4. I loved Leigh's use of the folder and now I love yours as well! I am going to have to get me one of those!

    It's fantastic for male cards, Love the fathers day card!


  5. Absolutely fantastic Kylie! Yours is the best card I've seen using that embossing folder and what a cool idea to use it with a coke can! lol Definitely makes it more realistic and very inexpensive too!


  6. What a fantastic idea, and such a 'blokey' outcome. I love it! Thanks for all the lovely comments you left on my blog, you made my day!

  8. LOVE it Kylie. What a brilliant card.

  9. Great card Kylie. Glad I could provide you with some inspiration.

  10. Wonderful card! Leigh is so good with her ideas for the embossing folders and you have added another idea. Now I am on the scout for some tins as none are used in my house! I am at my son's now - he will have heaps in the recycling bin LOL!!
