Day four of the new releases from MHK Designs is a very versatile set called I've Been Framed, it has five frames and five sentiments that can all be swapped around to give you even more possibilities.
Hat's Off really appealed to me, it seemed just right for a Father's Day card. I have used it for a general masculine card here and I still have all the other options to try, now that's value for money.
The hat is an image I already had so I printed the Hat's Off frame and quote quite small, then die cut it ready to tuck in the ribbon band on the hat. It's printed on white card and coloured with Distress Ink while the die was still in place, I've also stamped a crackle over it in the same ink to age it.
Well Suited has some great papers in it, this one was printed out on cream card after changing it to browns rather than greys. The edges have been distressed with the same ink as the tag and crackle stamped too. There is a small dark brown mat between the backing and the cream card blank.
The hat is mounted on thin foam pads, there is a small slit cut in the edge of the ribbon for the tag to go in where it's stuck down flat.
With the addition of some scrabble tiles to spell dad the card is complete. The tiles do sit a little proud of the card so it would be best hand delivered rather than posted.
We have one more new release tomorrow so you still have a chance to pop over to MHK Designs blog for the chance to win a stamp set.
