June 15 marks another special day for dear old dad–so it's time to create Father's Day cards. This week's Splitcoast Color Challenge (CC168) seemed plenty "manly" for my husband, with the inclusion of Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip and Sage Shadow.
A chocolate chip card stock card base (4.25 x 5.5, scored at the top) kicks things off for daddy-o. It's topped off with a layer of Au Chocolate Designer Series paper (retired) and Sage Shadow card stock.
Twill Tape (1.5" wide) gets matted on Sage Shadow and Chocolate Chip card stock. TIP: Stampin' Up!'s Twill tape comes in a pack of three sizes and is very agreeable to being stamped upon. For this bit of twill, Stampin' Up!'s Always stem gets dipped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink and leaves a favorable impression. I simply had to play with my new Robin's Nest Dew Drops (Cowboy) so they got oodles of attention on this card.
The sentiment is from All Holidays and was inked in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and stamped on Very Vanilla. TIP: Craft Ink is embossable and Classic Ink is not. Clear Embossing Powder was dusted on and heat embossed to a shiny finish. The edges are distressed in a flash using Stampin' Up!'s Cutter Tool. TIP: This handy dandy portable guy includes a rotary cutter, perforating tool, scoring tool and a 7-sided distressing tool. Too bad it can't mow the lawn.
Father's Day is matted on layers of Chocolate Chip and Sage Shadow card stock. The final touch is a few more pops of color from Robin's Nest Dew Drops.
