  • Using the Forever Lovely stamp set stamp the following on one whisper white card stock 
    – Stamp flower with lovely lipstick ink 
    – Stamp leaves with Pear Pizzaz ink 
    – Stamp sentiment with Memento Black Tuxedo ink

Adhere the white card stock to the black matting than adhere to the front of card

Stamp “Happy Mother’s Day to the other white card stock and in the bottom corner, stamp the single rose and adhere to the inside of the card

simple card but as the stamp set say’s, it makes a lovely but simple card

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.
