Happy Father’s Day!

father's day card 2016

With Father’s Day coming up I thought soon I thought I would post a card for the special occasion! It features a paper golf ball, wooden golf peg and brads that look like screws! How fun! I especially like the argyle die cut that I touched up with gold embossing powder.

Supplies: Dark Grey 5″ x 7″ card base, navy blue paper, green paper free-hand cut with a curve to resemble a golf hill, a small bit of orange scrap paper, toothpick, wooden golf peg, navy blue ribbon, brads, father’s day stamp, hot glue, gold embossing powder, heat tool, adhesive, two inch circle punch (Recollections), Swiss dot embossing folder (Spellbinders), argyle die cut (Tim Holtz), Memento London Fog ink, Blue Sapphire distress ink

Directions: Cut your card base, cut navy blue matt, die cut with argyle die then brush on versamark and heat emboss with gold, cut 2 inch circle from white cardstock, emboss with Swiss dots, turn over and highlight backside edges with Memento London Fog ink, you want your golf ball to have indents, not bumps. Cut the green and adhere to the blue, cut the ribbon to wrap to backside of blue/green matt, cut smaller piece of ribbon, use hot glue to attach the golf peg to the small piece of ribbon and tie in knot. hot glue it to the long piece across the bottom of the card. stamp message, cut, mount on navy blue, use brads on sides, hot glue to the ribbon. Glue on golf ball. Use a toothpick as the stick for the orange sign. Cut paper to resemble flag, write #1 on it, glue it to the toothpick and stick it in behind the green paper. mount your navy piece to your base and matt inside with white for writing a personal message. If my directions are confusing, just look at the picture! 🙂

Happy Father’s Day to all you amazing dads out there who work hard and take care of their families!

Enjoy!
