Father's Day Is On Its Way
May 31, 2009
I had planned on doing a Shaker Card, but I couldn't come up with one that would be relatively simple for everyone to follow. I wanted something quick and easy. Mitra said she is going to surprise me with something I will love soon, so stay tuned every one. So today I chose to do a relatively simple Father's day card. This image by Leigh Hannan called Pears D2193. I also saw that it can be purchased in the Clearance section for $4.00. That's a deal if you ask me. Father's Day, June 21, will be here before we know it. I haven't quite decided what words I want to use in the lower right-hand side of the card either, but I still have a little time.
The image was stamped on white cardstock and painted with Twinkling H2O's and the seeds were highlighted with Stickles Cinnamon glitter glue. It was put through the Cuttlebug using a Spellbinders Rectangles Large Scallop die. The background behind the image was filled in with a couple of different colors by wetting the area down and then applying the watercolors so it would spread out. I stamp with Brilliance Galaxy Gold. I always heat it to speed up the drying time. It also makes it rise up a little. In addition to that, it acts a lot like a resist when I am going around it for the background you see.
The next layer behind that is Copper cardstock put through the Cuttlebug using the Spellbinders Large Deckled Rectangle die. It was then put through again to get the embossed edge. The image was mounted on it. Then copper brads were applied to the corners. Stickles Cinnamon was used for the remaining scallops on each end.
The DP paper had a holographic glitter on it. Stickles Cinnamon was applied and then an old postal credit card was pulled lightly across it as shown. When dry deckle scissors were used to trim the edges. Some of this DP was also used on the top inside of the card and the envelope. The DP was mounted on another piece of Copper cardstock.
The mounting was done next. I misplaced my slot punch. An X-Acto knife was used to cut slits on each side of the image. The ribbon was slid through the slits. The image was mounted and then the ribbon was secured to each side of the card.
The bow was made with the Bow Easy.
