Father’s Day Card

Father's Day card

It’s almost Father’s Day, which means the weekend is approaching! This Father’s day card includes some watercolor and my favorite Journaling Alpha dies, which are great for creating sentiments when you have zero fathers day-specific stamps or dies…

I did several watercolor washes on a Canson watercolor paper panel in various shades of blue and green. I also added some blue spatters with the watercolor and white spatters with some white acrylic paint. While that dried, I cut out the letters to spell father from some white cardstock and fun foam, and layered the cardstock on top of the foam with some multi matte adhesive, and set those aside. When the panel was dry, I figured out where I wanted the words happy and day to go. This part of the sentiment comes from the Bold Blooms stamp set, I just cut the stamp apart to separate the words. Yep. Cut it apart. Photo polymer stamps are easy to cut apart and they will fit back together nicely once mounted onto an acrylic block if you want to stamp the whole thing again, so it’s really no big deal if you want to do some stamp surgery!

Anyway, I stamped happy and day on my panel in black ink, and then mounted my die cut letters. I felt the panel still needed something, so I distressed the edges a bit with a distresser tool and then mounted it ontoΒ  piece of vellum that I tore the edges from to make the whole thing look even more distressed. Unfortunately, the photos don’t pick up that detail. I mounted everything onto an A2-sized card base and called it finished!

Do any of you have special plans for Father’s Day?
