Father’s Day is coming

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;

  1. Night of Navy card base, 5 1/2 x 11″, scored at 4 1/4″ then folded
  2. DSP, 5 1/4″ x 4″
  3. Vellum, 4″ x 3″
  4. Night of Navy Mat, 2 1/2″ x 3″
  5. Whisper White, 2 1/4 x 2 3/4″

Father’s Day Card

Father’s Day is approaching so made up this very simple card.

Sadly, I lost my father a few years ago so cannot give him this card. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t think of him. That doesn’t mean I can’t make a card, right? It makes me feel better.

Instructions to make this card are shown below;

Black Cardstock 
– cut 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 (card base) 
– cut 1 1/4 x 5 1/2 (Sentiment mat) 
Woods Textures designer series paper 
– cut 1 1/2 x 3/4 (3 panels) 
– cut 1 x 5 1/2″ (sentiment) 
Crumb Cake card stock 
– cut at 4 x 5 1/4 (inside the card)

After folding the black card stock and using a bone folder to crease the card, I adhered the Wood Texture panels evenly across the front of the card using snail adhesive.

I stamped “Happy Father’s Day” (non SU product) onto the sentiment piece and adhered to the matting using snail adhesive.

Using dimensional’s, I added the sentiment to the front of the card then added a few sequins to the front for a little bling. 

I used the snail adhesive to adhere the crumb cake card stock to the inside of the card but left it blank.
