Welcome to the May 12th edition of Super Saturday Tutorials! Today, I’ll show you how to create two new techniques… Faux Corduroy and Faux Pegboard! I’ve used both on a Fathers’ Day Card too…The background faux corduroy really looks and FEELS like corduroy too!! The faux pegboard was inspired by a sheet of synthetic pegboard in my stamping studio…
LOL… so I thought I’d give it a whirl using my crop-a-dile tool and simply scored board.
Are you ready to start making faux corduroy and peg board? First, gather your supplies:
- Simply Scored Board and Stylus
- Tabletop Paper Cutter or other Paper trimmer tool
- Crop-A-Dile Tool (3/16” Circle Punch)
- Mat Pack
- Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Card Stock
- Soft Suede Classic Ink
- Stampin’ Sponge Wedge
- Sanding Block
Step By Step Tutorial…
Faux Corduroy and Faux Peg Board Techniques:
- Cut Crumb Cake card stock to desired size… on today’s card, I cut the card stock 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”
- Sponge card stock using stampin’ sponge wedge and soft suede ink.
- Place sponged side down and long edge along top rail of simply scored board and score vertical lines at every 1/8” increments. TIP: Use the wider ball tip, press firmly as you slowly score each line… this will produce more defined corduroy markings.
- Completely fill the cardstock with 1/8” scored lines.
- Turn card stock over so that the sponged side is facing up and the lines are vertical.
- Sand with sanding block up/down along each line…. as you remove the subtle sponging from the raised lines, your card stock will soften and reveal a soft to the touch corduroy!!
- Cut Soft Suede Card Stock 2-3/4” x 3-1/2”.
- Use Mat Pack and pencil to mark placement of faux pegboard holes, skipping one hole between each mark.
- Place Soft Suede card stock with longer side against top rail of simply scored board and score at 1/4”, 1”, 1-3/4”, 2-1/2” and 3-1/2”.
- Turn card stock 90 degrees (shorter side against top rail) and score at 1/4”, 1”, 1-3/4” and 2-1/2”.
- Punch each intersecting line using the Crop-A-Dile Tool to create a faux peg board!
- Turn card stock over, and sand raised lines using sanding block, they will lighten up.
- You’re done, now all you have to do is make a card or scrapbook page using your faux corduroy and pegboard!!!
Combining these two faux techniques, I think it makes a fabulous Fathers’ Day Card… what do you think?I added some 5/16” very vanilla brads, using a mat pack and paper piercing tool (leaving three holes between each pierced hole).
After stamping “happy Fathers’ Day” with Early Espresso Ink onto Very Vanilla card stock, it was punched using the Extra Large Oval punch and mounted to the card front using stampin’ dimensional ultra thin “pop dots”.
I love the contrast of the faux corduroy against faux pegboard, don’t you?
Tomorrow is Mothers’ Day… and I’ll be celebrating the day with my DH and DD (and working too, LOL). Our son is still living in Utah, so he won’t be here . I’ll be sharing a special Mothers’ Day project tomorrow, hope you’ll stop by to say hi!
And.. Happy Mothers’ Day to all!
