Father's Day Card

Hello everyone!

Thank you for stopping by. It's Father's Day here in the UK on Sunday so I thought I would share with you the card I made my dad.

I used a combination of stamp sets to create this card. The background is made using the stamps from the Oceanfront set in Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana and Sahara Sand.  The deckchairs and umbrella are from a new set - Sunkissed, that will be available in the new mini catalogue from July.

I stamped the palm trees from Paradise Palms to one side to create the illusion of them peeking in from behind the frame as well as the sun peeking from the top right.

For the frame, I used the largest and third largest stitched rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles Die Set to cut the frame from Soft Suede. Using some post it notes, I masked off the corners at an angle on the top and bottom of the frame; and  stamped the wood effect stamp from the Whiskey Business stamp set, on the edges numerous times on the masked sides. To give it a more realistic feel, I blended some Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso. Then removed the masks and repeated the process on the sides.

Last minute, I decided to turn it into a shaker card, so I stamped the sentiment from Celebrating You at the top. The additional sentiment at the bottom of the card was from a retired set, Handsomely Suited, but I'm sure you have something in your stash equally as perfect for the occasion. Adding the window sheet to the frame and added adhesive foam strips around the outside to create the depth needed. I used some old sequins to use them up for the shaker so raid your stash to see what you can use. Then the background piece can be added to back of the frame.

To put the card together, the card base is Soft Suede. I embossed a piece of Crumb Cake using the new 3d Fern embossing folder and for a little extra detail, I also cut from Coastal Cabana the strip die from Paradise Palms and cut in half so I could layer behind the shaker element. And of course, I had to add some twine to finish it off.
