I just helped my dad celebrate his 90th birthday so this is a special Father’s Day. I wanted the card to let him know how much he means to me.
Thank you is not enough to let my dad know how great he is so I felt I needed to add another element to his Father’s Day card. I started out with a piece of Pebble Path cardstock & cut it in half at 4 ¼” x 11”, then cut the other piece at 5 ¾” x 4 ¼”. I scored the card base at 5 ½” and the smaller piece at ¾” and used my bone folder to fold the crease. The ¾” strip was adhered to the inside right with Stampin’ Seal + so now there is a left & right flap.
I used the Pebble Path based sheet from the Earthen Elegance DSP and cut 4 pieces, 5 ¼” x 4”, 5” x 4”, 2 of 4” x ⅞”. The smaller one was adhered to the outside of the right flap, the larger to the front of the card and the 2 strips on a 5 ¼” x 4” piece of Vanilla cardstock for the inside center.
I stamped the Timeless Arrangements sentiments on Vanilla cardstock then cut them out using the largest banner die from the Timeless Arrangements dies and the smallest square from the Stylish Shapes dies. The strip is just a leftover piece from when I cut the vanilla cardstock.
Using the sprig dies from the Timeless Arrangements dies, I cut out multiple pieces using Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Calypso Coral, Petal Pink & Soft Seafoam cardstock scraps. Some of the die-cuts were cut in half & they were all adhered to the back of the 2 banners with Stampin’ Seal. I used dimensionals to adhere the one on the cover & Stampin’ Seal to adhere the one on the right flap.
I do not have a “Happy Father’s Day” stamp that is current, so I used stamps from the Best Family Ever stamp set. I inked up “happy” on the “happy birthday” & stamped, stamped “DAD”, then inked up “day” on the end of “happy birthday & stamped and completed it by stamping with the 3 flowers all in Pebble Path ink. The 5 ¼” x 4” Vanilla cardstock piece was adhered to the inside center with Stampin’ Seal.
I added the Pebble Path colored dots from the 2023-2025 In Color Dots to the front of the card to complete the look I wanted.
