Making cards for men is a struggle! But the Vintage Tools stamp set and He’s the Man Designer Series patterned paper make it easy for this heartfelt Father’s Day card for Dad in orange, brown and tan.
Full list of supplies needed, listed below. A die cutting machine is needed for this card.
Basic White Thick Cardstock: 8 ½” h x 5 ½” w – score at 4 ¼” for Card Base
Basic White Cardstock:
- 5 ¼” w x 4” h
- 4” x 3” (for Stamping tools – these will be fussy cut)
Early Espresso Cardstock:
- 5 ⅜” w x 4 ⅛” h for Background
- 1 ⅛” h x 5 ¼” w
Cajun Craze Cardstock: 2” w x 3” h
He’s The Man Designer Series Paper (DSP):
- Cajun Craze 2 ¾” w x 4” h (for die cutting with Deckled Rectangle Die)
- Sahara Sand 5 ¼”w x 1” h
- “Best Dad Around” and the 3 stars are from the Die Cut sheet from this DSP.
- Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.
- Fold the Card Base in half using a Bone Folder to sharpen the crease.
- Stamp the tools onto 4” x 3” Basic White using Crumb Cake Ink Pad. Color these tools using Stampin’ Blends. I used Smoky Slate on the clamp, Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate on the Hammer and Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate on the chisel. Then go ahead and fussy cut these.
- Using the Deckled Rectangle Dies, cut the He’s the Man Designer Series Paper (DSP) Cajun Craze panel.
- Adhere the “diamond shape” Best Dad Award label from the Die Cut sheet from the He’s the Man DSP to the Cajun Craze piece of cardstock. Trim around the edges to make a matte.
- Now you’re ready to assemble your card. Adhere the 5 ⅜” w x 4 ⅛” h Early Espresso Cardstock to the folded card base.
- Attach the die cut Cajun Craze DSP to the left side of the card. Adhere the fussy cut tools to this piece.
- Adhere the Sahara Sand strip to the Early Espresso layer. Wrap a double strand of linen thread and tie into a knot. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere this to the lower edge of the card, leaving about ¼” of the white showing.
- Using Stampin’ Dimensionals Adhere the Sentiment to the card. Choose 3 stars for the He’s the Man DSP and adhere those to your card.
- Scatter 3 Rustic Metallic dots.
- Decorate the 5 ¼” w x 4” h Basic White Cardstock and attach to the inside of your card.
- Decorate your envelope.
- So manly! Now send it to someone special who is a Dad.
