I did not have time to share with you the card I made for my sweet husband for Father’s Day – it can actually serve as an everyday card too. I used the MFT Sketch Challenge #389 as inspiration for the layout.
I started with die cutting a white stitched rectangle and die cut the You are my favourite die on the right side. Then I popped up the panel on an aqua striped patterned paper using 3D foam tape.
I stamped some of the bears from the Bitty Bears stamp set, coloured them with Copics and cut them with the coordinating dies. I mounted them on the background using 3D foam squares. I added some extra shimmer and shine to the balloon and present the bears are holding with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and glossy accents.
I also used a black glaze pen on the eyes and noses, the latter got a bit of glossy accent to for more dimension.
The sentiment is from the All About Mom stamp set, white heat embossed on a thin strip of chocolate cardstock.
I will link this up to the MFT Sketch Challenge #389. I hope you like my card and will return soon for more inspiration.
In Hungary we do not have officially Father’s Day which is so unjust in my opinion. So I plan to celebrate with my kids and the heroes of our family on Saturday. I made already 2 cards which my kids can give them: one for grandpa and one for daddy. The layout was inspired by the current MFT Sketch Challenge #388.
I stamped the images from the Giraffing me crazy set, coloured them with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I cut 2 simple white tags and glued the giraffes on them. On one card I placed them in a way that they look like hugging each other. So cute!
I heat embossed the chosen sentiments (one from the stamp set, the other from the More Essential sentiments set) in white on dark cardstock scraps and cut some banners. I adjusted the length with the partial die-cutting technique.
I chose patterned papers as backgrounds and popped up the tags with 3D foam tape. I embellished the cards with a little enamel heart on each. I could not resist adding google eyes to the giraffes and used glossy accent on their dots for a special look.
I hope you like it and will return soon for more inspiration.
