Happy Father's Day!


This is a card that I made for my husband for Father's Day. I knew he loved the Mango Melody color, so i wanted to make sure i used it on his card.

1.) Sponge the ink colors of your choice to create the background. I created the background on a Whisper White layer 3 1/4 x 4 3/4. I started with the top color and lightened it as i worked it down the card. Then I added the bottom color. After those were done I blended the middle color trying to reduce any harsh lines where the colors meet.

2.) I used black ink to stamp the tree image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set directly on my background. I then mounted that on plain Whisper White cardstock 3 3/8 x 4 7/8.

3.) I stamped my sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp set onto a scrap piece of paper using Blackberry Bliss ink and cut it out using the Classic Label Punch. The Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set is retired, but there is a new stamp set that is very similar in the new catalog on page 46 called Itty Bitty Greetings. This stamp set also has a stamp for dads that reads "WORLD'S BEST FATHER".

4,) I figured out the placement of where I wanted everything, then adhered them to the Blackberry Bliss card base 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Score at 4 1/4.
