Tool Time

For Guy Cards
This week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart is to use your favorite tools on your project. I wanted to make a card for our #1 Dad for  Father's Day. My favorite tools are the ones I use for texturing: embossing stylist, sanding kit, piercing tool, and the clear ruler.
#1 Super Dad Card
 The embossing stylist is used to make faux stitching and embossed lines on the cardstock

Use stylist to emboss lines on the edge of your cardstock.

Use stylist to emboss textured lines on your cardstock.
The sanding tools are used to bring up the white core in the cardstock after embossing with the stylist

Sand embossed lines to expose the white core

Use the piercing tool to make holes on the sanded line to make faux stitching.
Pierce the sanded lines at even intervals to resemble stitching lines.

Use the clear ruler to pierce stitching holes for stitching with needle and thread.
Pierce zig zag holes or straight holes for needle and thread stitching.
Assemble card using all the different textured parts.
Now it's your turn to share your favorite tool(s) with us at Heart 2 Heart.

Love your card. Using my stylus to make creases in my card stock is one of my favorite things to do. Love how you mad it look like faux stiching. AWESOME. Thanks for sharing! Sandra V. ~
