I needed to make a very important card today; a Father’s Day card for my daughter to give her Dad this Sunday. I’m delighted that she comes to “my store” for her greeting card needs.
Knowing that my husband’s favorite color is Crumb Cake, I began with a Crumb Cake card base, layering it with Whisper White Cardstock that I stamped with Crumb Cake ink and the Buffalo Check Background Stamp.
Next, I cut a 2″ wide piece of Whisper White Cardstock, punched the end with the Banner Triple Punch, and embossed it with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.
Linen Thread was tied around the top of these layers, and glued to the card base.
My focal point is the father and daughter from A Good Man Stamp set. How precious is this!
I stamped the image in Memento Black Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and fussy cut with Paper Snips. They were fun to color with Stampin’ Blends in the seven colors listed in my Product List.
After coloring, they took their place atop Dimensionals.
The sentiment, “I grew up loved,” is also from A Good Man Stamp Set, along with the sentiment inside, “thanks to you.” I stamped both in Soft Suede Ink, and cut the card front sentiment with a Stitched Rectangle Die.
My sketch was inspired by Global Design Project.
I appreciate you visiting today! A Good Man will be great to use for masculine birthday cards also, and you can order it by clicking on the picture in my Product List. Have a great day celebrating Dads this Sunday!
