Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

This week at Create with Connie & Mary, we are showcasing "Alphabet" cards. I must confess that I do not own any alphabet stamp sets so I had to get creative. Do you see what I did here using the Nailed It stamp set?

I stamped enough screwdrivers to create the word "Hi". This would make a great card to give your spouse, boyfriend, Dad or son!

I used my Marina Mist Ink Pad and a Blender Pen to color the top portion of each screwdriver and then added Smoky Slate Ink for the metal part.

I even added a row of screws as a border at the bottom. How fun is that? I hope you enjoyed my card for today and make sure you click on the links below to visit my teammates!

Card Layers:

  • Card Base: Basic Gray Cardstock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4".
  • Layer #2: Neutrals Paper Stack 3/4" x 5-1/2". Glue about 1" from the bottom.
  • Layer #3: Lots Of Labels Dies & Whisper White Cardstock. Use the largest die and emboss using the Hexagon Embossing Folder.  Glue to Card front.
  • Screwdrivers: Stamp 4 screwdrivers using Basic Gray Ink and cut out with the framelits. Color using Marina Mist and Smoky Slate Inks with a Blender Pen. Remove one bottom portion of the screwdriver on one image. Glue the screwdrivers in place to form the word "HI" to card front.
  • Add Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine around the three times and tie into a bow.
  • Stamp the screw image repeatedly below the twine using Basic Gray Ink.
  • Embellish: Add two of the screw embellishments from the Urban Underground Embellishments
