For Dads

Although this card was for Father’s Day, it can be used for Dad’s Birthday or any other special occasion. Since it was for my husband, I went with his favorite colors: Green and Blue (well he really likes green, but I added some Indigo in there for good measure).

The card base is new In Color Lucky Limeade (available July 1st), layered with Island Indigo (another new In Color) and Nursery Suite DSP in the Old Olive/White combo.

Across the front, I took a strip of Island Indigo and wrapped Twill Tape around it. Then, using the cropadile, I added some pewter colored Jumbo Eyelets to either side.

In the center, I used Take a Spin and inked up the stamp once with Lucky Limeade and another time with Island Indigo ink. Then I stamped it each time onto Whisper White and punched out the Limeade image’s inner circle with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and hand cut the Indigo image’s outer circle very close to the stamped image with scissors. I added in a Game Spinner Hand and then popped up the smaller circle with stampin dimensionals. Finally, it was all layered onto Daffodil Delight card stock, punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.

The sentiment at the bottom is from To a Classic, stamped with Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo Markers. I punched it out with the Word Window Punch and then layered it onto Island Indigo Modern Label Punch. That is also up on stampin dimensionals.

Flower Fancy with Vellum Butterflies

Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Vellum; Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Real Red Marker, Riding Hood Red Marker, Old Olive Marker, Certainly Celery Marker; Stamps: Flower Fancy, Messages for Mom; Tools & Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Crystal Effects, Rhinestones, 3/8″ Twill Tape.

I stamped the flowers from Flower Fancy with Chocolate Chip ink and colored them in with Real Red and Certainly Celery Marker. Then, taking a slightly darker color (Riding Hood Red and Old Olive), outlined the images and accented them with Crystal Effects.

The butterflies were made using Vellum card stock and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit in the Big Shot. I colored the rhinestones with red permanent marker (any kind will do). They are adhered to the card with mini glue dots.

Across the bottom, I added a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. Then, I stamped onto the Twill Tape with Real Red ink and a sentiment from Messages for Mom.
