June Inspiration with Julie

Good morning
I have got two masculine cards to share with you today
I have taken a couple of requirements from Week 2 and Week 4 of the Retro TV Programs competition to create these cards.
As I have had Covid and done some casual full time work for the AEC I have not had the opportunity to create a project for these weeks and thought I would do it this way.
Here are my cards

Lets start with the first card
I created this card using a couple of requirements from Week 2
Use shades of blue and a grid design.
I have used a pale blue cardstock for my 5 1/4″ card base
A piece of white cardstock was trimmed to 5″ square and embossed with a 3D embossing folder
paper that are approx 2″ in size.
All of the papers/cardstock were distressed with my distressing tool and my Versa Color black ink cube
Scrap cardboard was attached to the back of the squares of patterned paper before they were attached to the white embossed cardstock
This panel was then attached to the card front.
The sentiment was attached to a piece of burlap and then attached to a piece of the same cardstock that I used to create the card base.
A piece of scrap cardboard was attached between the sentient and the card front.
To embellish this card I used a few cogs from Uniquely Creative’s Silver Metal Cogs.

For the second card I used some of the requirements from week 4
Vintage and Washi Tape

I have created the 5 1/4″ card base using a light kraft colours cardstock
The rust coloured cardstock is from the optional competition kit and measures 5″ square
The patterned paper is a 4 1/2″ square piece from Uniquely Creative’s Drive and Fly – Train
All of the edges were distressed in the same way the previous card was.
I added some torn pieces of Washi Tape from the optional kit
to the bottom left and top right of the patterned paper panel
To embellish this card I used the chipboard stars from the optional kit and an arrow from
I painted them with two coats of white acrylic paint,
one coat of Rust acrylic paint and a coat of
The papers/cardboard were attached to the front of the card with a piece of scrap cardboard behind the plain cardstock.
The chipboard was then attached using liquid glue and the sentiment, which is from Paper Roses – All Occasions Sentiment pack was the last thing to be added
Here is my process video
I hope you enjoy it
Till next time
Stay safe
