I have been using the Urban Underground Suite for a week in preparation for my class which I held on Saturday. This is one of the projects we made using the Build it Framelits along with the Nailed it stamp set and also sentiments from Urban District. We created our own background paper stamping on half a sheet of Whisper White (A5) which we used on this card and another set of 4" x 4" cards. I used Pacific Point card and layered using Delightful Dijon. I 'borrowed' some sandpaper from my hubby and discovered that you find all sorts of bits and bobs in the toolbox so I added a couple of bits of wood which were off cuts from another project we made using the Hardwood stamp. The screw head embellishments I added to each of the bottom corners are made from the 'waste' when you die cut the nut from the Build it framelits. I just scored each one straight across the centre to make it look like a screw. Here are a set of PDF instructions giving measurements and details on how to make this style of card.
The Urban Underground is orientated more for making male cards but don't let that hold back your creativity as I was able to introduce girl power making a nail file holder using the DSP, Embellishments and Nailed It stamp set.
