Hi friends, here we are back with our Glitter & Glam Girls Blog Hop! No glitter on my project this month since our theme is masculine cards, wanted to give you some inspiration to get ready for Father’s Day next month in the US.
I debated about what to create and a set was really calling to me from the new catalog, the stamp set is called “A Good Man” and will be available to purchase on June 4 (unless you are demonstrator you can pre-order it now).
The base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2″ night of navy card stock, and I used 4×5 1/4″ whisper white for the top layer, a 4″ x 3″ piece of the new Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. I also used the new night of a navy and Sahara sand bakers twine and after wrapping it around the card twice I slipped it through the Sail Away trinkets (2 styles-anchors and ship steering wheels) and frayed the ends of the twine by untwisting after I knotted it. I cut another piece of whisper white out using the stitched shapes dies, I used the medium oval piece.
This card would be perfect for Father’s Day, or for your special guys birthday, retirement, job promotion, anything you name it. I colored with our alcohol markers, the Stampin’ Blends, and I use soft suede for the sand and his hat, balmy blue for the sky, Bermuda bay for the stripes on the chair, Night of Navy on his shirt, Ivory for his skin, and basic gray for the shorts. I did use the color lifter to soften the look of his shirt and for shading. What do you think? I would love to hear from you!
