Happy Father’s Day

My card today is one I created for my Dad for Father’s Day which was at the beginning of September.

I was sort of playing around when creating it & truth be told, it was going to be a card for something else & something entirely different, but it just sort of went off on its merry way.

I don’t have a tutorial for you today, but will try & remember what I did by the photo.

An oval was cut in the middle of a piece of Whisper White Card using the large Layered Ovals 20160724_165935_resized_1blFramelits & ran it through the Big Shot.  This piece was then embossed with the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I grabbed another piece of Whisper White Card just slightly smaller than the embossed card, placed it under the embossed card & lightly drew a line around the oval with a pencil.  This gave me the area on where to sponge & stamp on the smaller piece of Whisper White Card.

This piece of card was then sponged using Stampin’ Sponges, Soft Sky, Marina Mist & Crumb Cake Inks.  The birds are from the Wetlands Stamp Set & were randomly stamped in Early Espresso Ink.  I lightly rubbed the pencil line out with a Rubber.

The embossed card was then layered onto the sponged card with Stampin’ Dimensionals, ensuring I placed a few around the outside of the oval.  It was then layered onto a piece of Marina Mist Card before layering onto the Base Card – Crumb Cake Card.

I stamped “Happy Father’s Day” from Teeny Tiny Sentiments Stamp Set onto a piece of scrap Whisper White Card in Early Espresso Ink, cut it down to size, cut a Banner Shape either end before layering onto a piece of scrap Crumb Cake & cutting it down to size but allowing a small amount showing around all sides.  It was the adhered to the Card Front.

I hope you like my simple card today.  I know Dad did.  In fact, he always thinks I buy them!!!!!!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
