Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group’s Father’s Day Blog Hop! My name is Christina Miller and you are visiting my blog, Christina’s Creative Corner. Whether this is your first stop on the blog hop tour or you have hopped on over from another blog, thank you for letting me share my card creation with you today!
With Father’s Day right a few short weeks away, there’s no time like the present to make some super fun cards celebrating all the father’s you know! Today’s card featuring the A Cut Above stamp set is so quick and easy to make, that you can easily make multiples of and keep on hand for anytime you need a masculine themed card!
The base layer is Night of Navy cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and embossed with the checks folder from the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders. Even though these are smaller folders, I was able to emboss the cardstock fully by first embossing half of the cardstock and then lined up part of the embossed side with the folder so the other half that was not embossed would also be embossed when I ran the folder and cardstock thru again:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. One piece of the Paper Lattice embellishment paper.
2. Cut a 4” x 2 ¾” piece of Basic White cardstock, stamp the lawnmower man stamp, bird, and sun in Memento ink, and color in using Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Light and Dark Smoky Slate, Light Basic Black, Light Cinnamon Cider, Light Real Red, Light Night of Navy, Light Petal Pink, and Light Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends. When you are finished, you will use the corner rounder side of the Detailed Trio Punch on each corner.
3. Cut a ½” x 3” piece of Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Garden Green ink, and use the squared end side of the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch on each end.
I first adhered the embossed base layer cardstock on a Garden Green cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”, laid the Paper Lattice slightly askew, used liquid glue to adhere the stamped and colored Basic White cardstock piece in the middle of the Paper Lattice, and used dimensionals to adhere the sentiment piece:
For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Garden Green ink, part of the lawnmower in the bottom corner in Memento ink, and color with Light Shaded Spruce, Light Real Red, Light Basic Black and Light and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends:
Such a cute and fun card that is so easy to make! I decided at the last minute to see how the Paper Lattice would look layered on the card front and really liked how it turned out! Just goes to show you how any embellishment can give your cards a completely different look!
