Artfully Sent Father’s Day Card

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.

Father's Day card ~ Wanderful ~ Artfully Sent ~ catscrapbooking.comI 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.

I will be posting my son’s gift to his dad on Father’s Day so stay tuned.

Happy Crafting!
