You Can't Fix Stupid Card by Cindi Bisson

You Can't Fix Stupid!
Designed By Cindi Bisson

Makin’s Clay® is perfect for making embellishments for cards and scrapbook layouts.  It’s lightweight, flexible, and acid-free.  It  can be custom colored by mixing clay with clay, or you can add acrylic paint to change the color.  You can also paint the pieces afterwards with a wide variety of mediums with great results!  

Whenever I am working with the clay and I have small amounts left over, I use one of Makin’s® push molds and make pieces for future projects.   I’ve got a big bag of different shapes and it’s my ‘go-to’ when I’m looking for a unique embellishment for any project. 

These tool charms are the perfect accent for this humorous greeting card.

Open white Makin’s Clay® and use Tools push mold to make assorted tools.   Store unused clay in a zip-lock bag with a damp paper towel.   When using the push mold, you can either just push the clay into the space and then trim around the image after, or I prefer to gently manipulate the clay into the image space and not have to trim when the piece is finished.   Let clay embellishments dry 24 hours.   

Use Trim-Air trimmer to cut grey card stock to
4” x 9" and fold in half to form card.  Cut 3 3/4” x 4” piece of tool patterned paper.  

Use Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square to align patterned paper centered and mount on card front. 

Ink “You Can’t Fix Stupid” verse with Night Crafter’s Ink and
stamp onto white crackle paper using Laser Square to align.

Trim around verse, cut grey card stock mat for verse and use Crop-A-Dile to add silver eyelet to each side  
Use Laser Square to align verse and mount to center top of
card front with foam tape.

Paint clay tools with silver and brown paint.    Let dry. 

Mount tools to center of card beneath verse.
