I realized I never shared with you the Father’s Day card that I created for my husband! Together Claire and I created a card for her to give him but I also wanted to give him one. Brad is an amazing father and this card/greeting fit perfectly I thought! He really is a good man!
I love this stamp set – A Good Man! It has wonderful line art images which are great for coloring but also look good stamped solid. The greetings are perfect too! I think it’s just a classic stamp set!
I started with a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock for my card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the image and greeting in Basic Gray. I like using this for coloring because it is softer. Using Stampin’ Blends, I colored the man and the chair. Now repeat 3 more times…..lol. The first time I used Bronze for his skin tone….too dark. Round 2, I accidentally colored the chair as part of his shirt. Round 3 was finally perfect! Using the Balmy Blue Light Marker, I went over the entire background. It looked very streaky and like a hot mess but I set it aside for a bit. When I looked back at it, it was perfect! Sometimes you need to step back and not look at the close details so much! It’s fabulous!
Next, I layered this onto a piece of Crumb Cake and tied some Linen Thread around it. I ripped the bottom edge for a little texture and beachy roughness! Then I added this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! Of course on the inside I got all mushy about Brad being such a good father and such a good man. He is so amazing and I was in tears writing it. Claire and I are so lucky!
Here is Claire’s card that she made! She had so much fun! I did video the whole thing but it was like a 20 minute video. Cutest thing ever! She helped pick colors, stamp, and color. I can’t wait for many more years of crafting with her!
