So, I had a blast creating a few projects with my new toy, the Ultimate Crafter's Companion. I think what I really like about the tool is how many things you can do with it. I don't think I've tapped into half of the benefits yet... but, that's why I purchased it. The "have-to-have" features will be used all the time and the extras will be all for fun! And that's why I had to share.
I borrowed this image from the Ultimate Crafter's Companion website, in case you were wondering what it looks like:
Vintage GM Gift Box:
This next project was a quick gift box, created for my Grandpa's birthday. I always like to get him gift cards and a little something to open. And knowing how much he loves things that are made for him, I know this will be something he'll save.
I stamped the Vintage City Scrapblock on Natural White cardstock with Vintage Photo Distress ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used Old Paper Distress ink and a bit of Vintage Photo ink to give the map an aged feel. I like embossing the image first to ensure I don't lose the detail of the design. The 1938 Suburban was also embossed and aged. This is such a perfect look for the image, as the shine of the embossing powder really looks like the shiny finish of the car. You have to love that!
And the box... well, I love that the box itself took less than 10 minutes to create. The scoring template in the Ultimate Crafter's Companion made it so fast and easy!
