After creating all of the kits for the Father’s Day room cards I had a bunch of little parts and pieces left over. I’ll be honest, usually I just toss little bits and scraps right into the trash. However, I had company over. Someone that is known for rescuing my scraps so I decided instead to make something.
Keeping with the Father’s Day theme I made artist trading cards to swap in the monthly Pennywise Arts community 1-4-1 atc swap.
The deer trophy was created with part of the “Deer Trio” die from Memory Box. The head was “mounted” with foam tape on a oval brown background that was covered in O’So Sticky Tape. The oval was then beaded with brown translucent micro beads and layered on what I thought was the perfect stamp – part of a one dollar bill.
When I showed it to one of my son’s friends he said, “If you made 99 more you’d have a hundred bucks.” We all laughed out loud! I thought that might make a cute saying to add to the back for a Father’s Day token.
And if you happen to be swapping on the Pennywise Arts community 1-4-1 atc swap this month you will be getting one of these bucks in the mail soon!
