Hello my crafty friends, Maria here with you today on the blog! I hope you are all having a great week so far. Father’s Day is fast approaching and it is time to honor all the AMAZING dads out there. The new Dad’s tools – 6×8 Layered stamp set is perfect for this type of occasion, or you can even make just-because cards. It doesn’t always just have to be for one day out of the year. I know if my Dad were here, I probably would make him a card at least once a month.
I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock, using my Tim Holtz Tonic Stamp Platform. I think it is a must-have tool for stamping layered images. Since this stamp set did not have matching dies, I used my Brother Scan N Cut2 to die-cut the images.
I used the biggest of my Cross Stitched Rectangle dieto die-cut the blue patterned paper taken from the Gotta Have Gingham Petite Paper Pack 6×6 by Lawn Fawn. I then used the third piece of the Cross Stitched Rectangle dieto die-cut a piece of silver card stock. I placed this card stock onto my We R Memory Keepers embossing folder and run it through my die-cutting machine to emboss this piece.
I adhered my blue patterned paper onto my card base and then layered the embossed silver cardstock on top for my foreground. On another piece of white card stock, I die-cut the word Dad with the Uppercase Condensed Alphabet Dies. To give it some dimension, I used my foam adhesive to adhere the word Dad onto my card.
I stamped the sentiment on a black card stock with my Versa-mark ink and used my white embossing powder then set it using my heating tool. I also adhered the hammer and screwdriver images from the stamp set. I finished the design by adhering my blue enamel dots on the four corners of my silver card stock embossed piece. Here’s the card.
I honestly struggle with masculine cards so designing this was a bit of a challenge for me. However, I love how this turned out. Here’s a close-up look:
