Hello my crafty friends! I am back today to share with you a very simple Father’s Day card, using dies from Gina Marie Designs and the best of the best, Xyron 1.5 Inch. Sticker Maker and Xyron Mega Runner adhesive.
I find it hard to create cards for guys because I am always guilty of over-embellishing my cards or using feminine colors. I thought my card below is super simple, yet it is perfect for your Dad, or husband for Father’s Day.
I started out by die-cutting my card stock using my dies. Since the fishing pole is quite intricate, I had to die-cut it twice to have more stability. I adhered both pieces using my sticker maker.
I colored my fish die-cut using my sponge and distress oxide inks (worn lipstick and peeled paint). I wanted the colors to blend well together to make it look more realistic. I colored the rest of the die-cut pieces with my Copic markers.
To finish my design, I highlighted my fish with my Spectrum Noir glitter brush pen, and added the black rhinestone to the fish’s eye. Here’s my card:
I hope you like my project today and got inspired to create a simple father’s day card. The supplies I have used are listed and linked below. Have a great weekend!
