Masculine Father's Day Card in Cherry Cobbler, Silver and Basic Black
Father's day is coming up in about a month and I wanted to get a jump start on mine. I love how this one turned out but I would love to hear your comments and suggestions!
I wanted to stick with a very masculine look so my colors for today's card are Basic Black, Silver Foil and Cherry Cobbler.
I used the following cuts for cardstock:
Basic Black: 8½ x 5½", scored at 4¼"
Silver Foil: ¾" x 4¼"
Cherry Cobbler: 5¼" x 4"
I also used the following stamps and die cuts from the matching sets:
Stamp: Happy Father's Day (on Basic Black)
Die: Happy Father's Day cutout
Stamp: Car (on Basic Black)
Die: Car cutout
Die: large gear mashup cutout (Silver Foil)
Using your paper trimmer, cut out the Basic Black cardstock to 8½ x 5½" and then score it at 4¼"
Insert the cut piece of Cherry Cobbler into the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder and run through your Big Shot (or equivalent)
Adhere the embossed Cherry Cobbler to your Basic Black card base using snail adhesive, centered
Use the fine tip glue pen on the Silver Foil gears and glue to the Cherry Cobbler, centered, about ¼" from the bottom and slightly angled
Stamp the car and happy father's day images in Versamark ink onto Basic Black cardstock
Find the matching dies for the two stamped images and cut out using your Big Shot (or equivalent)
With Stampin' Dimensionals, pop the die cut embossed image of the car up over the gears
Wrap a 6" piece of Black Glittered Organdy ribbon centered lengthwise around the ¾" x 4¼" piece of silver foil cardstock
Adhere the silver foil to the Cherry Cobbler about 1" from the top of the card base
Pop up the Happy Father's Day embossed and die cut image with Stampin' Dimensionals to the silver foil strip about ¼" from the left side of the Cherry Cobbler
