FM 164 Father's Day & Shrink Plastic

So this week at The Friday Mashup Lynda threw me for a loop but only for a moment. Her challenges were to make a Father's day card and stamp on something other than card stock. I had no idea what I could stamp on but then I remembered the Shrinky Dinks Plastic I bought a while ago and hadn't tried out yet. It certainly was a learning curve but once I figure out how to get it just right I came up with my fantastic card. 

I didn't stamp everything on Shrinky Dinks plastic, just my sentiment but that counts right???

Here's your Friday Mashup:

1. Create a project for "Fathers Day, or that special man in your life"
2. Create a project with stamping on anything other than cardstock
3. Mash it up and create a Fathers day project with stamping on anything other than cardstock.

I created the print out for the sentiment banner in MDS and printed it. From there I followed the instructions on how to shrink the plastic into the small sentiment you see on my card.

Unfortunately my printer likes printing lines on larger photo or color images so I have a few lines on the Fathers Day banner but there wasn't anything I could do about it.

Stampset: Send me Soaring (retired), Hardwood, Life in the Forest
Paper: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Whisper White
Ink/Markers: Staz On, Pool Party, Gumball Green, Crumb Cake, Baked Brown Sugar, Calypso Coral, Basic Black

  1. Cool idea for the "non-cardstock" stamping! Such a fun Father's Day card.

  2. Ha! Avery, I thought you planned the lines- they look cool with the wavy textured ticket. I just found some shrink material- must try something with it. Love the scene you created and the cut grass.
