Retiform card

This week I am combining two challenges:  StampTV MIUM Cash Card challenge and Mod Squad Blog Retiform Technique challenge. I decided to make a Father's Day card.

I started with a piece of white cardstock and scored and folded it to make my cash card base. On the front I used post-it notes to mask off portions of the cardstock and sponged with ink. I kept repeating this until the entire front of the card was coloured. 

When I was picking the stamps to use, I realized that I don't have many masculine images. So I made do with what I had from several different stamp sets. I masked off the different segments and stamped the images and sentiment. 

I taped the flap on the inside (for the money) with strong tape so it would hold.

I used these products:

Gina K. Designs: Stamp sets: Art from the Heart, Better with You, Made with Love, Fabulous                                              Holiday Fillers, Happy Birthday to You, Birthday Blessings
                             Ink: Blue Lagoon and Prickly Pear
                             White card stock
VersaFine Onyx Black ink
Sookwang tape
