Father’s Day with a KraftyKreations Mandala

As a reward for purchasing from the Krafty Kreations booth at the Scrapbook Expo, I received a kit which makes two Mandala cards.  I was a bit under the weather so Paul helped me make the two cards so we had Father’s Day Cards for the Son – In – Laws.

And this is how we customized it for Father’s Day.  The Happy Father’s Day is from words in Pink & Main foil kits, cut to size, and run through the Mini Minc machine with a pretty foil.  Call it ‘Mixed Media’!

I think you are taken with the black sticker technique because you always loved black accents.  

So true, Sal, and I love glitter!  Combining the two, glitter and black accents, with the ability to color the glitter any color and I am thrilled!  Wait until you see the Christmas sets I purchased!

  You are thinking Christmas already?

Half the year is almost gone; I had better be getting ready for making Christmas cards!

For the inside I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp set ‘Treasures of Life’:

As with most commercial kits, the inside is just the blank white of the card base.  Tranquil Tide card stock was a close to perfect match for the card kit front so I cut a piece the full size of the base – 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 (minus a hair on the the 4 1/4 side to account for the score line down the middle).  The black mat is 4 X 5 1/4 and the white top layer is 3 3/4 X 3 5/8.

Back to using the kit – when you peel up the outline sticker, you are left with the other pieces and it looks like this:

 

Krazy Kreations sells ‘transfer sheets’ but I had no clue at the time what those would be used for.    Evidently, you apply the transfer sheet to this left over sheet, burnish real well, and then the transfer sheet will pick up all the little pieces and you can then apply those pieces to another card.  I will try Glad Seal and Stick and see if that works.  I will edit this post after I do that so you can come back and see if I made it work!

Thanks for joining me today as I delve into different crafting techniques.
