Craft Consortium - Essential Paper Pad Launch

Hi guys 💜

I'm back with more card samples using the fabulous Essential paper pad collection by Craft Consortium launched on Create & Craft on the 17th May. The 4 pads contain different grunge and textured effects apart from one which is full of tropical birds, patterns and flamingos.  All the designs, colours and quality of the pads are stunning. I will be creating another 2 projects using 2 of the other pads later this week and next week, along with other collections that have been released. So please check back to see them.

Anyhow, here are my cards using papers from the 'Metal Texture' Grunge paper pad. This pad is perfect to make a Father's Day or male birthday card, so here are a few ideas, I hope you like them. All the links to the specific Craft Consortium products can be found below, and the link to the general store is here.

Card #1
Card #2
'Metal Textures' Paper Pad

Here's What I Did
Card #1 - First I die cut a frame from black card using 2 rectangle dies.

Next I die cut 2 cog corners, several small cogs and the word 'dad' from a sheet of the patterned paper. I added a little gold gilding wax all of the components. The corners and cogs were glued to the back of the frame along with some foam tape around the edges.

The 'dad' sentiment was glued in place in the centre of the card, then the frame was placed over it. To complete the card I added gold enamel dots to the centres of some of the cogs.

Card #2 - I trimmed down a piece of the patterned paper to 5¾" x 5¾" to cover the front of my own 6" x 6" card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge.

An oval was die cut from white card and sponged around the edge with brown ink, when dry it was added to another die cut oval that I cut from bronze matt mirror card. I stamped the clock onto the same patterned paper with black ink and fussy cut out, when dry this was glued into place on the white oval. The words 'Tic' and 'Toc' was stamp on either side of the clock. The oval topper was added to the card front using foam pads.

Using the same bronze matt mirror card stars were punched out and glued around the card, to complete it.
