Happy Father’s Day

September 3, 2018

In Australia we celebrated Father’s Day yesterday so I thought I would share with you the card I made for my Dad.  I was inspired by some cards posted by Carolyn King (an Aussie Demonstrator) which used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  This card is pretty much an exact case of Carolyn’s card.  I didn’t read Carolyn’s post properly so I did not create a template for my card, I just winged cutting on the angles.  I first cut the Very Vanilla card and attached a piece of Early Espresso card behind, using the Paper Trimmer to cut away the excess Early Espresso Card.  I attached the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper behind the trimmed card to create just right sized panel for the card front.  I cut Early Espresso card using the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die and trimmed away the “birthday”.  I attached the “happy” to the card front.  I created “fathers” and “day” by stamping on scrap Very Vanilla card using the Stamparatus, Labeller Alphabet and Early Espresso ink.  The Stamparatus makes it so easy to create any word you want using this lovely stamp set.  I trimmed the words from the Very Vanilla card and attached them to the card front.  I stamped the outline leaf from the Colourful Seasons stamp set using Early Espresso ink and stamped the fill image using Crumb Cake.  I also stamped a small leaf from the same stamp set onto scrap Very Vanilla card using Crumb Cake ink.  The leaves are cut out using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  I also used these dies to cut the detailed leaf from Early Espresso card.  I attached the leaves to each other and then the card front.  I tied a bow using Linen Thread and attached it to the stem of the leaves.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a narrow strip of the same Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to the bottom of Very Vanilla card.

I hope all the Father’s out there had a wonderful day yesterday.

Bye for now,

Kris
