Father's Day Card

Alot of Stampin' UP! demonstrators (including myself) are having a blast with new products from the 2014-2015 Stampin' UP! catalog that will soon be available to customers on June 2nd!

Just like Mother's Day, Father's Day is coming very very soon and I wanted to make sure that I have my dad's card done before it's too late.

This card features a couple of new products from the  catalog which I will list below. 

 At first I wasn't sure about it, but I really like the color combination from the Moonlight DSP paper stack* which gives a masculine feel: Hello Honey*, Basic Gray, Blackberry Bliss*, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White....

My Tips:
  • I used the thin cardstock that is packaged with the Chevron Tag a Bag gift bags. The thickness of the paper is perfect for creating a papercraft project. I always get excited when I recycle something that was included as part of the packaging!!!
  • I didn't have enough space in my 2 3/8" white circle to stamp all three letters side by side so I improvised: stamp the D's next to each other, then stamp the "A" on vellum and pop it up between the letters with a dimensional.

Supplies used:
  • cardstock: hello honey*, blackberry bliss*, whisper white, basic gray, kraft paper (from tag a bag packaging)
  • paper: moonlight paper stack*, vellum
  • ink: basic gray, hello honey*, soft suede
  • stamps: morning post alphabet, simply stars, teeny tiny wishes (for inside greeting)
  • punches: chevron border, 2 1/2" circle
  • embossing folder: decorative dots
  • framelits: circle framelits (2 3/8")
  • embellishments: neutrals candy dots 
* denotes items from the 2014-2015 SU! catalog.
