I can’t believe Father’s Day is coming up quick! This year I’m bound and determined to make a gift early… I’m not sure what the gift will be yet, but at least I have a card ready!
I aimed for the balance of fancy but not fussy, and I think it makes it there.
Tips for making this card:
- Mix and match the images from the Guy Greetings stamp set to make this for that special guy in your life.
- The stamp set not only says “Father” but you also get the choice of Grandpa, Dad, Uncle, Husband and Brother!
- Stamp the hats image multiple times to make a background for your card. To help blend in the fact that you are using the same stamp a bunch, stamp the first time and then offset the second stamped image – ie stamp so the last row of the hats in the first image are lined up under the middle row of hats in the second image.
- Spotlight them by using the Circles Framelits and cutting out a large circle from a 4”x4” piece of the Gold Foil paper – which is awesome stuff, btw!
- Stamp and cut out the “Worlds Greatest” and the car image to give extra POP on the card.
- Make it a little more polished by heat embossing the “World’s Greatest” and the “Father” sentiments.
- I also added a bit of the retired gold Watercolor Wonder washi tape and the used my Essentials piercing template to pierce a row of holes from the left edge to the “Father” sentiment. Sometimes the little details are just what it needs!
A few of the steps take a little bit of work, but for the awesome men in our lives, it is worth it, right?
