I know it was Father’s Day a while ago but I hadn’t got around to sharing with you the card I made for my Dad. I CASED this card which I found on Pinterest and unfortunately I cannot read the watermark to give credit to the creator. I used the skinny line image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Archival Black ink to create the striped background on Whisper White card. I stamped the car from the Guy Greetings stamp set onto Whisper White card using the same ink and punched it out using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch. I made sure to leave a straight edge on one side. I attached the image to a circle of Basic Black card cut using one of the Circles Collection Framelits Dies, which I trimmed to match the straight edge. This was attached to the stamped/striped panel and then to Basic Black card. The whole piece is attached to scored and folded Whisper White card. I added some large Basic Rhinestones to add a little bling. Inside the card I stamped “World’s Greatest Dad” onto Whisper White card using Archival Black ink and images from the Guy Greetings stamp set. The panel is attached to Basic Black card.
I also created matching packaging to house my Dad’s gifts. I used the Baker’s Box die to cut Basic Black card and stamped Whisper White card using the same line image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Archival Black ink to decorate the side panels. I cut a tag from Basic Black card using the Lots of Labels Framelit Dies. I stamped Whisper White card with the “just for you” from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set using Archival Black ink. The Baker’s Box is wrapped with Whisper White satin ribbon with the tag attached and tied in a knot. The box holds two golf balls. My Dad loves his golf! I created a matching tag to hang from a bottle of port and added”happy father’s day” which is from the Guy Greetings stamp set. My Dad also loves his port!
Lucky for me Dad was happy with his gifts and I thought they looked really cute. What about you, what do you think?
Bye for now,
