A Card For Fathers Day

Hi everyone πŸ™‚

On the 4th of September, we celebrate Fathers Day here in Australia. So I thought that I would get a head start by making some Fathers Day cards to share with you all.

These two cards follow the same pattern as the Tuxedo card that we made a couple of months ago, but I really liked the style and it worked really well with the Magical paper, even though its only a very small piece. The card stock that I have used is Crystal Blue with White Daisy and Slate with White Daisy.

The small piece at the neck is Champagne and this gives a nice flesh tonne to the card.



I have used a couple of red gems for the tie pins (as every card needs a little bit of bling on it). The stamp set used is from the seasonal expressions 2 catalogue, on page 23, Day for Dad C1645.

Here are the measurements and the video:

Crystal Blue card stock: 8-1/2’ x 5-1/2’ Score on the 8-1/2’ side @ 4-1/4’

White Daisy Banner pieces: 1st 4-3/8’ x 3’

2nd 4’ x 2-1/2’

Champagne neck piece:Β  2-1/4 x 1”

1 tie cut from magical B & T paper, the Artiste Cartridge page 75, accent 3 , cut at 4 -1/4’

  1. Fold and burnish the card.
  2. Cut the two White Daisy pieces into banners as shown.
  3. On top of the smaller banner cut in 1/2′. Then fold back about 1/2′ in from the edge.
  4. On top of the larger banner add the neck piece which is champagne.
  5. Attach the larger one with tape runner to the top of the card.
  6. Add tape runner to the smaller one and place on top of the larger one.
  7. Attach the tie to the top of the white banners under the collar section.
  8. Attach one red gem towards the bottom of the tie.
  9. Stamp the Happy Fathers Day in the matching ink onto a small piece of White Daisy card stock and attach to the front of the card.

Stamp set: Day for Dad C1645

Card stock: Crystal Blue 1292, Slate X5930, White Daisy 1385

Paper: Magical X7209B

Gems: Enamel Red Gems Z3090Β 

If you have a small Happy Birthday stamp, this makes a great card for any male in your life.

I hope that you like this card and give it a go.

So till next time.

Keep on creating πŸ˜‰
