I finally was able to get some free time to create a Father’s Day card for my husband. I love The Best Dad Ever stamp set but I wanted to make one using Artfully Sent too. So here is what I designed.
I used the card on page 40 of the Artfully Sent cartridge. This card was perfect for my husband since he loves his muscle cars, although this is not a Corvette it should still go over well. I decided to use Wanderful paper pack as it would be perfect since one of the pattern papers looked like a map. Plus I have not really played with this pack yet. I cut the Wanderful patten paper using my Cricut Explore. I changed the measurements to be 5.5″ wide by 8″ tall. I did have to unlock the measurements to get this size. Then after cutting what I intended to be the card base and just line it, I changed my mind. I decided to have a boarder around the pattern so I cut it at 5.75″ x 8.25″ . I realize this is not a standard card size but it does not really matter since I will not be mailing. To create the layers I went into Design Space and hid the outer contour line so the lines around the car and the detail on the cars was what remained. I did this twice with the Crystal Blue and Black (for the tires only). I then just pieced the Black, Whisper, Honey and Colonial White behind the open spaces of the car. I added a little bling with Black and Gray Epoxy Bubbles Z1935.
For the inside I carried the Wanderful patten paper at the bottom. I used The Best Dad Ever stamp set A1173 but I did not want to use the top hat, mustache and bow tie, so I used masking tape to mask off what part of the stamp I did not want to use.
I will be posting my son’s gift to his dad on Father’s Day so stay tuned.
