Nailed It, Build It, Gorgeous Grunge, Father's Day Card

It's a little early for Father's Day but I am really liking this new "Nailed It" set that has the "Build It" Framelit Dies to go along with it.  No fussy cutting here!  I especially LOVE the screw and bolt dies.  

For this card I used Basic Gray cardstock for the base, a folded half sheet.  Then I took a piece of the decorative paper from the "Urban Underground" Decorative Series Paper pack (DSP).  I cut that piece 4" x 5-1/4".  I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3-3/4" x 5".  

I used the splatter image from the "Gorgeous Grunge" set.  I stamped it using Basic Gray ink.  Next I die cut 3 pieces of DSP and set them on top of the splattered ink images.

I stamped the "Happy Father's Day" image using a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I die cut it and set it in the center of the other die cut pieces using Dimensionals.

I die cut some screws and bolts using silver metallic paper.  I wasn't thinking when I was cutting out the other pieces, but I could have cut the screws and bolts out at the same time.  So much for planning ahead!! LOL  They were easy and quick to cut out but the fact is, I could have done them all at once and saved myself some time.  But what's done is done and if I use it again, I will know to cut them out at the same time!

There's not a whole lot to this card. I found it super easy to make. I found a card that used the colors of the hexagons but I can't find it now.  I changed it a lot, so if you did find it, you may not notice the 3 hexagons on the Whisper White piece were the same.

It'a very easy and fun card to make.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
