Father's day is only couple of weeks away. My daughters and I like to make fun handmade gifts and cards for their fantastic dad. Today, I would like to share these 2 Father's Day cards with you all.
On this first card, I used the Atlantic cardstock to make the A2 card. I stamped the Tools Background stamp on Jawbreaker cardstock with HA White Pigment ink pad using MISTI. I dried the stamped image with craft heater and then I cut it with Double Stitched Rectangles Dies. I added the panel on the card with Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive.
I cut out the Heart pattern cardstock with one of the Stars Nesting Dies and I added it on the card with thin glue dots.
For the sentiment, I stamped the tape image from the Best Dad Ever stamp set with VersaFine Clair Blue Belle ink pad on Classic Smooth White cardstock with Mini MISTI, and then I fussy cut it with scissors. I added the sentiment on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.
This second card is a Z-Fold card. I cut out the French Mint cardstock in to 4.25" x 11". Then, I scored and folded it in to a Z-fold shape. There are several ways of making Z-Fold card but this is the basic one that I use to make my card.
I use the Green Dotted Swiss cardstock and Green/Gold Marble cardstock as the mats on the card. And I cut 2 more of the Fresh Mint cardstock to use as sentiment panels.
On both of the sentiment panels, I stamped the border image from the Best Dad Ever stamp set with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink pad on both top and bottom using MISTI. And then, I stamped the sentiments in between the border images with VersaFine Clair ink pads, too.
I added the panel inside (or back) of the card first, and then I lined up the front panel on top of it but only glued the bottom of the panel.
It is a fun to make this Z Fold card and I kindda like the idea that the recipients can display it on their desk or shelf. How about you? Do you like making fun-fold cards?
I hope you all like these masculine themed projects today and hopefully they inspire you to make something special for your loved ones.
