Happy Father’s Day

September 6, 2021

Hope that all the Dad’s and Grandfather’s had a wonderful day yesterday. I thought I would share the card I made for my Dad with you today. I embossed Basic White card using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I attached a piece of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper which I cut on an angle across the bottom of the embossed card. I cut Night of Navy card using the “rope” die from the Smooth Sailing Dies and attached it to the top edge of the Designer Series Paper. The Basic White panel is attached to scored and folded Night of Navy card. I cut Basic White card using the Layering Circle Dies and masked a large section. I used a Blending Brush to add Night of Navy ink to the lower section of the circle. I removed the masks and masked the coloured section of the circle before adding Coastal Cabana ink using a Blending Brush. I attached the Basic White circle to a Night of Navy scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circle Dies.

The circle panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the small sailing ship from the Sailing Home stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the anchor image from the Sailing Home stamp set onto Basic White card using Night of Navy ink. I cut out the images using the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing Die. I coloured the sailing ship using the Light Night of Navy, Light Smoky Slate, Dark Daffodil Delight and Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends. I attached the sailing ship to the coloured Basic White panel. I tied a length of White Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack through the anchor and attached it to the card front using dimensionals where necessary.

I stamped “happy father’s day” from the A Wish For Everything stamp set onto Basic White card using Night of Navy ink. I punched out the greeting using the Double Oval Punch. The greeting is attached to a Night of Navy scalloped oval punched using the Double Oval Punch. The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals where necessary. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the small sailing ship onto the lower left hand corner of Basic White card. I coloured the image using the same Stampin’ Blends as the image on the front of the card. I attached the piece of Designer Series Paper I had left after cutting the piece for the front of the card which is also on a diagonal. I cut another “rope” image from Night of Navy card using the Smooth Sailing Die. I also cut the “rope knot” from Night of Navy card using the same dies. I attached the “rope” and then the “knot” across the top of of the Designer Series Paper.

I love the way this card turned out. Although my Dad was not into “sailing ships” he was in the Navy for a long time and he still loves the sea.

Bye for now,

Kris
