June 2024 | Best Dad Ever

When you have the best Dad ever, it's easy to come up with ideas for Father's Day cards. This year, I found the perfect stamp set from Papertrey Ink to base my 2024 Father's Day card on. Here's how it went...



Using Papertrey Ink's "Father's Day Sentiments" stamp set, I stamped Best Dad Ever onto Spellbinder's "Brushed White Cardstock" using embossing ink and Ranger's Silver Super Fine Detail embossing powder, then heat set the sentiment. I die cut the sentiment and its matting layer using Spellbinders' "Mirrored Arch Labels" dies. The top folding A2 card base and the matting layer for the sentiment were cut from Spellbinders' "Graphite" cardstock. I die cut a scrap piece of Spellbinders' "Lunar Gray" using the Spellbinders' "Precision Layering A2 A" dies (the second from the largest) for my background mat layer that I'll compose the card front on. I ran the Lunar Gray cardstock through my die cutting machine with Altenew's "Organic Linen" embossing folder before adhering it to my card base.


For the florals I used Spellbinders' "Garden Wreath Add-Ons" die set and I diecut the leaves and stems multiple times from Spellbinders' Brushed White Cardstock until I felt I had as many as I would need. Next, I cut the berries and flower centers a few times from Altenew's Moonstone and Blue Apatite glitter cardstock. I continued diecutting floral elements for the card front from Spellbinders' grey range of cardstocks (and a random blue cardstock that I found in my stash) until I created a variety of colors and textures to choose from for beginning the floral arranging process.



I glued all my flowers and berries together and glued those to my card front and then added my foam adhesive backed sentiment as close to the center of the card as possible.


Since I used a dark color for the card base, I did cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of white cardstock for stamping my sentiment and writing in the card.


That wraps up this year's Father's Day celebration card. Thank you so much for stopping by and, until next time, happy crafting!
