Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | You’re the best, Dad!
Today I have a card to share that finishes off the Father’s Day set I started last week. I really love how this little group turned out, I wasn’t planning on creating a set of projects, it just sort of happened and now I have some treats and a card ready in plenty of time – that hardly ever happens!
I used the same piece of Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, ink and cardstock colours as my previous projects just changed up some of the stamped images to mix things up a little. The large sentiment is from You’re Delightful – a host only set – and was looking a little bare by itself so I added some words from Thoughtful Banners on the diagonal as a fun background.
I kept the badge element and enamel dots from earlier projects but felt it needed a little something extra. This is the part I find tricky with masculine projects finding just the right sort of embellishment without going too far – it’s a fine line 😉 anyway, I ended up making some cord from Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine which adds the texture and interest I wanted but is still understated.
TIP: The cord is quite thick so I had to pop up this layer on the card base and I used the Foam Adhesive Strips as they’re a little thicker than dimensionals. I really like this look but if you have to pay extra postage for thicker items where you live you might want to add a flat ribbon instead.
Here they are all together waiting to go into hiding for the big day 🙂
A short and sweet post from me today, I hope you liked this set of projects and if the colours aren’t your cup of tea there are lots of other lovely ones in the Annual Catalogue to choose from.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match your sentiments to create what you need, I didn’t think I had enough guy friendly sentiments in my stamp collection, turns out I have loads of them, I just had to think outside the box a little 🙂
I hope you’ll come back tomorrow to see my first Festive Friday project!
