I love it when a WTGuy gets released!! Seems like a special treat since it doesn't happen all the time:) And I love this one especially because my husband is a real yardwork kind of guy and the sentiments are great in this set as well! So, that's the set that I chose to preview tonight...
I die cut lots of strips of grass using MFT's fresh cut grass dienamic from various green scraps of dp and layered them on another peice of green dp. The rest is pretty simple, stamping the image into cloud patterned dp, then again onto green dp, peicing it. Then once again onto cream CS, colouring him with copics and then peicing over the dp. Spica glitter pen was added to the grey areas on the mower. I stuck a wee bit of the grass die in front of the mower. I layered that stamped panel on a deckled rectangle in chocolate CS and popped it all up on dimensionals. There is a little twill tab added to the stamped panel for some added interest. Twill is a good option for those 'guy cards' when you can't bring yourself to not throw on some kind of ribbon!! I threaded some buttons with brown hemp twine and stamped the sentiment 'I Love You Mower' on a banner flag.
The inside used 3 more grass strips, stamped the mower image, minus the lines around the edge of the stamp in memento rich cocoa, stamping it off once to get a lighter look, and stamped another sentiment in front of the mower in black ink. Cute sentiment, huh?? lol Now if only I had a pool!
