Bold colors and crisp embossing is a thoroughly masculine way to create a Father’s Day card. My inspiration for the repeat pattern of embossing was from this gift card box from Amazon. I thought it was oh so cool!
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIP: I found that I could eyeball the the repeat pattern (no Stamp-a-ma-jig or Clear-Mount Guides needed) by mounting the clear-mount sentiment on a block diagonally. For me, this little trick removes any prismatic effect I sometimes get if I mount a stamp near an edge of a long, skinny block. Give it a try. I use this method even when i’m adding just a single sentiment.
