Fear the Beard with the Duckmen - Card by Monica Edwards
Fear the Beard!
Designed by Monica Edwards
Hi everyone Monica here with a card I created using the KellyCraft™ Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™, and a Duck Commander® stamp.
- Duck Commander® Wood Stamp - Duck Men
Black ink pad
Close to my Heart - patterned paper in two different styles
Sewing Machine - to sew the edges
I cut a piece of solid card stock and fold in half to create card. I then cut a piece of patterned paper approximately 1/4" smaller on all sides than front of card, and cut another piece of patterned paper about 1" smaller than card front.
I cut a piece of patterned paper to serve as a mat for the Duck Men images.
I stamped the Fear the Beard verse and trimmed around the verse.
I then took my distressing tool and distressed the layers of patterned paper. I love how this came out and I would take a toothpick and curl the edges
Then I used my sewing machine and stitched the outer edge on the 2nd layer of patterned paper.
All the layers were mounted to the card front, using the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square to align the first layer. The second piece was mounted unaligned as shown, as was the Duck Men and the Fear the Beard verse.
