Hi there crafty folks! Today, I’m sharing a Father’s Day card (late, granted) made using several products from the new release from Pretty Pink Posh. I won’t be able to see my father tomorrow, but I wanted him to know I was thinking of him.
I used the Stitched Strips for the background of this card. As of writing this blog, it is currently sold out, be sure to sign up for notification when it’s back in stock. I chose a palette that I thought would work well for a masculine card.
- Dark Indigo (Papertrey Ink)
- Smoke (Simon Says Stamp)
- Stampers Select White (Papertrey Ink)
- Charcoal Brown (Gina K)
- Mustard (Hero Arts)
If you have already split apart your dies, I suggest you line them up and tape them together with some Purple Tape. It saves a lot of fussing. I die cut using the full set twice from each color (I had a fair amount leftover).
After die cutting, I cut down a 6″ x 6″ double sided adhesive sheet from Scrapbook.com to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and applied it to a panel of Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock. In hindsight, I wish I had used liquid glue because with adhesive sheets once those suckers were down, they were locked in place! Which is a good thing for many techniques, but this technique is easier when you have time to shift and adjust.
Using the Hugs Shaker die from a prior release, I cut it out three times and cut the word “hugs” from cutout. I adhered all three together for dimension.
On a scrap piece of Dark Indigo cardstock I white heat embossed a couple of sentiments from the Simple Sentiments stamp set and popped them up on the background using thin foam tape. I adhered the Hugs die cuts to the background with glue and then used tape runner to adhere the background to a white card base.
I used enamel dots from Waffle Flower to embellish a tad (sequins would have been over the top for my dad). I had toyed with the idea of using some of the stamps from the Father’s Day stamp set, but in the end went for the Hugs Shaker die instead. You can see the stamps in the photo.
Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.
