Birdie Brown's DIY Dad


Birdie Brown has a monthly challenge and is very generous with her freebies. This month we get to work with DIY Dad. I thought it would make a great image for a new home card.


I used this weeks sketch from I {Heart to Sketch} for the layout as I thought the larger panel on the left would make a great wall that was being papered by DIY Dad.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers in Browns and blues which are my favourite colours for a male themed card. I found some really really old papers from a Male orientated magazine pack that were perfect to go with it. I ‘wallpapered’ the panel leaving one roll curled up going down the wall. I cut the same length of paper as the first but added a core of scrap cardstock in the centre to strengthen it and then some of the strong red backed tape to make sure it doesn’t unfurl. I also added a roll of paper as an embellishment.

The brown cardstock is textured scraps from DCWV and I used a Nestabilities die to cut the sentiment panel which is a very old rub on and a punched house.

That’s my card for this month’s challenge and how on earth did it get to be the end of May already? I honestly do not know where this year is disappearing to……

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – 4 ½” Square
Image – DIY Dad by Birdie Brown
Sentiment – Rub on from stash
Paper – From a Male themed magazine special & DCWV Cardstock
Tools - Letraset Promarkers & Flexmarkers, 3d foam, Fiskars Border punch. House punch, Nestabilities die

Great new home card, Mandy. It would be good as well on a Father's Day card with a change of sentiment. Terrific! Thanks so much for playing along in the CDAC 'Anything Goes' Challenge.
