Today’s card is another Father’s Day card that I made 2 days ago, but could not post. While creating my last card, I had decided to use a particular stamp set sold by Stampin’ Up! called “Blue Ribbon” which has a pretty medal look alike ribbon and different sentiments that could be stamped in the middle of the Ribbon. It looks like this
# 1 Dad…. Father’s Day!!
The only issue was to keep the scallop intact with the ribbons…. Hello PINTEREST… I found a pin showing how to keep the ribbons intact and still be able to punch the scallop out 😀 It took me to Patty Stamps where Patty shows how to punch it out… She has a picture tutorial that is pretty simple. Click HERE for the tutorial.
So here is my card:
I created the background on the Kraft cardstock by repeatedly stamping Dad and a small tie image. Loved how it turned out. It is fun to see how easily a stamp can create nice backgrounds for any card =) Use the same Kraft colored ink to create a subtle background.
This card is for sale on ETSY
Until Next time,
