Father’s Day is coming so I made this masculine card for the men in our lives. It is a generic card so it could be used as a Father’s Day Card, a birthday card, or even a retirement card. Whatever special day that is going on in their lives.
The card base is made with Night of Navy Card stock. The DSP is from the Sale-A-Bration “County Club Designer Series Paper”. I also used the stamp set “Well Dressed” and stamped the hat on the DSP before fuzzy cutting it out. The Sentiment comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. I love how all the stamp sets work so well together.
The Measurements are as follows;
Night of Navy card base, 5 1/2 x 11″, scored at 4 1/4″ then folded
DSP, 5 1/4″ x 4″
Vellum, 4″ x 3″
Night of Navy Mat, 2 1/2″ x 3″
Whisper White, 2 1/4 x 2 3/4″

Well with my card classes cancelled for the time being, and lot’s of time spent at home, what’s a girl to do? Crafting of course.
Ok, well I would be crafting anyways but now I have more time, so decided to try something new. I made up this gift card box (or book) which holds five cards and envelopes to match up with the paper. How cute is that?
I am pretty pleased with how it turned out and it would make a great gift for someone who cannot get out and about. Add some stamps and they are all set. I left the inside of the cards blank so they can be tailored to suit any occasion.

I love this card for its simplicity. It could be used as a birthday card or sympathy card.
Supplies required and directions are shown below. If you are missing the needed supplies, click on the shop now button to see all the amazing products offered.
Cut paper as follows;
card base – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 – fold in half so card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Pear Pizazz – cut to 4 x 5 1/4 (mat)
Very Vanilla – cut to 3 3/4 x 5 (cut 2)
Punch one each Pear Pizazz & Very Vanilla
Using a scrap paper 3 3/4 x 5″ punch a 2′ circle where you would like the circle to show on the card front. I placed it a bit to the side about 1 1/2 ” from the bottom Place this piece of paper over the very vanilla cardstock. Using the sponge brayer, gently run it over the pear Pizazz ink in one direction only for even coverage. Roll it over the circle (again one direction only) until you like how it looks then remove the scrap. I chose to make it very light at the top and darker as you go to the bottom of the circle. Stamp the tree image using Old Olive so it lies just below the circle but so the branches overlap the circle.
Adhere the matting to the front of the card Wrap the ribbon around the base of the very vanilla, below the stamped image and tie a knot or if you prefer a bow. Adhere to the matting on the front of the card Stamp a sentiment to the punched out label then adhere to the pear pizazz label using the snail adhesive. I used the Happy Birthday from the Beautiful You Stamp set for this card but you could put any sentiment on to suit the occasion. Place dimmensionals to the back and adhere to the front of the card so it overlaps the ribbon. Adhere the second Very Vanilla card stock to the inside of the card and either write or stamp another sentiment.
Are you ever in a situation where you need a gift right away and don’t have time to shop? These gift bags are the answer.
I made these up to have on hand as a “just in case” type moment. The card was made up ahead of time so placed it along with an envelope, into a clear bag and stapled it to the outside of the bag for easy reference. The card is blank inside so you can write your comments to fit the situation.
Inside the bag is a mini pizza box filled with chocolates and decorated in the same colours and paper as the card on the outside. It is all tied up with a coordinating ribbon.
The bag is big enough to add other items if you wanted to or you could slip a gift card into the box as well. A little bit of tissue paper to stick out the top and you are all set to go. A little gift is better than no gift, correct?
Since I didn’t have any on hand, I’ve added tissue paper to my next shopping list
These three cards will be featured at tomorrow’s card class. I am quite pleased with the variation of designs and I look forward to demonstrating how easily they can be created. I prepare everything you need to make these beautiful cards in advance and we will put them together step by step If you would like to explore your creativity by attending my next card class or if would like to receive my monthly newsletter please let me know so that you don’t miss out on an opportunity…. thanks
