Be inspired! Here are some of my favorite Father’s Day and masculine card ideas (and more) from the past. See over 1000 card and project ideas in my gallery.
Some of the Stampin’ Up! products used have been discontinued over the years. However, you can either improvise or simply enjoy. The links below each photo will take you to the original post, tips and a supply list.
Today’s friend card is primarily neutral (Whisper White and Gray Granite) with the perfect pop of Poppy Parade. Gray Granite (a new core collection color) and Poppy Parade (a returning In Color) are part of the Stampin’ Up! Color Revamp. New colors, retiring colors, new ink pad design and color comparisons are summarized here.
The Share What You Love Bundles (on sale here) have been an uber popular way for customers to get their hands on new products before the annual catalog begins June 1. I used many of the products in the Share What You Love product suite on today’s card.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base using Thick Whisper White card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer.
Emboss a 4 3/4 x 3 1/2 piece of Gray Granite card stock using the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder and the Big Shot. TIP: Run the embossing folder and card stock through the Big Shot forward and backward to maximize dimension. See this post for a video with more tips.
Tie Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine in a bow around a 4 3/4 x 1 piece of Poppy Parade card stock. Adhere to the Gray Granite layer as shown. Adhere Gray Granite layer to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Using the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool for crisp results and precise placement) ink the sentiment and flower (Love What You Do stamp set) with Basic Black Archival Ink. Stamp on Whisper White card stock.
Ink the texture stamp in Poppy Parade ink and stamp at “full strength” on three flowers. Stamp “off” (on a piece of scrap paper first) with Poppy Parade ink for the remaining two “lighter” flowers.
Crop the sentiment and flowers with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and second to largest straight square from Layering Squares Framelits Dies. Adhere using Snail Adhesive to a Basic Black scallop square created with the Big Shot and the largest of the scallop square dies.
Add a trio of black “bling” from Faceted Dots. Adhere sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals as shown.
