I made the Father's Day card above for my step-grandfather. My intent was to make it look like a button down shirt & I nailed it! The card base is Core'dinations A7 (5x7) Kraft card. The background paper is from My Mind's Eye Boy Crazy 6x6 paper pad. The button stamps & the silhouette tie stamps are from Unity Stamp Company May 2013 Totally & Utterly Amazing KOTM. I used Versafine Onyx Black Pigment Ink to stamp all the stamps. The happy father's day stamp is Studio G iClear stamps. The red bling is from my stash that I received in a prize from Scrapping Everyday Miracles that Helen sent me. The twine is a RAK from Heather that I added to look like the thread down the side of a button down shirt & I added the bling as a button on the "pocket" stamp. The blue mats are from Best Occasions Textured 12x12 scrapbook pad. This is the first time I have tried this design & will be using it again. I think this is my best out of 4 different styles of Father's Day cards that I made!
I used the same stamps and ink on the bottom card as above. I used white copy paper for each card. I made 10 of these for my PreK-1st Grade Sunday School Class & left the inside blank for them to decorate & a few wrote inside. I had to help with spelling and some added stickers. I had 9 out of 10 students, so I did good! My fingers were covered in ink by the time I was finished, but it washed off! LOL! I made all of these on Saturday afternoon so I had a productive crafting day! :)
I'll be participating in A Bug Outside Blog Hop this coming Saturday, June 27 so please come back & hop with us! The hop will start with Theresa's blog. I have VBS at church this week at night and working 3 days this week so I may not be blogging again until then. Have a great week! TFL!
