Happy Monday Everybody!! Thanks so much for checking in with me. I have a cute card for you today to help inspire you in your card making for Father's Day. That's this week's theme at the Card A Day Blog. If you're not familiar with the CADB, we have a new card to inspire you every day, we have a new theme each week, and we have challenge prizes every month. So I hope you'll consider joining us in the fun. We love seeing what you create.
Now for my card. I've been accumulating a few rolls of washi tape, and decided it was about time to start using some of them. I chose a color scheme, and went about finding all the elements I would need. I started with the washi. I have a pack with blue and green rolls (four of each in all different designs) and decided to use the tape on a white background to really show off the colors. Using five rolls of the tape, I created my own striped designer paper.
I added a matching piece of pleated ribbon, a die-cut tag for the sentiment, and the word "dad" in holographic glittered chip board letters. The ribbon is very dimensional, as are the letters, so I added a little more dimension by affixing the card layer and the tag with foam tape.
Since I used a darker card base, I decided to add an inside mat for the sentiment and signature. I used more strips of the washi to coordinate nicely with the front of the card. For a little variety I tore the inside tape unevenly instead of cutting it neatly as I did on the front.
I think my two sentiments work nicely together even though they are from two different sets and two different companies. I love it when things work out that way. Don't you?
Your final view is a straight on front photo. I think this one is the most authentic in color and brightness, although the blue is closer to a true navy in person.
Here are some of the details:
Gina K Designs - outside greeting
Stampin' Up - inside sentiment, card base, ink and ribbon
American Crafts Thickers - letters
My Mind's Eye - decorative tape (washi)
Spellbinders - tag die
That's it for now. I hope you are having a wonderful day in your corner of the world.
