For our projects today, the design team is showcasing the Papa Bear stamp set and coordinating dies. This stamp set is perfect for Father’s Day cards or just about any occasion. We don’t really have to wait for Father’s Day to make a card for our Dads (husbands, grand fathers, etc.) so this stamp set is a definite “must-have”!
I stamped the images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.
I die-cut another piece of white card stock, using the scallop die from the Frames and Flags die set. Using my handmade clouds stencil made from the Sky Borders die that I created awhile back, I colored the background with my mini ink blending tools and distress oxide. I also used another handmade stencil to create the hills.
I used a scallop die that I have from my stash to die-cut the middle piece to create a little window. I adhered this piece on my card base. I die-cut a yellow card stock with a sun die from my stash and glued this piece on top. I used fun foam to create some dimension on my foreground and adhered it on my card.
To finish the design, I stamped the sentiment and added the pink hearts. I put glossy accents to the hearts to give it a little shine. Here’s the card:
This card is really simple but I love how it turned out.
