Happy Dad's Day

Happy Friday! Today's card is tooling around with a couple of masculine stamp kits to create a fun Father's Day card for that handy dad in your life! I paired Forrest Guy and Best Tool in the Box stamp kits to create this fun card!

Let's start with the background. I started by stamping the tools randomly on ivory cardstock using a light brown ink. Using Copics, I colored the images in. I also stamped Forrest on the same color cardstock and used the same Copic colors to color his outfit. I die cut out the background using the Scallops & Stitched Rectangles die set and fussy cut Forrest (leaving a little edge for the sentiment later).

Copic Colors Used:

  • Greens: YG63, YG61, G20

  • Hair, T-shirt & Tools: W6, W4, W3, W1, W0

  • Skin: E55, E53, E51

Pro Tip: For added detail, I used a white gel pen to add grays into his hair and stripes onto his plaid shirt. This can personalize your image for that silver fox.

Using Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to add some ink to the edge of the background. This will draw the eye to the center and keep Forest as a focal point. I stamped the sentiment using the same light brown ink. I did stamp it a few times to make it a little darker and die cut it out using the My Favorite Things - Essential Stitched Sentiment Strips. I added some similar color washi tape to add under Forrest... and a button for fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you've found some inspiration.

Until next time... Happy Crafting!
