Cute Father's Day Card with Happy Little Stampers!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to another video for Happy Little Stampers. In this video I'm going to show you how to create a 'Cute and Fun Father's Day Card'! Why always make some rustic and manly cards for Dad? Dads are cute, they need some sweet and pretty stuff too :p What do you say?


Making this card was very simple! For the panel... I purposefully used the tag die from Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8PK - Tag Collection instead of Rectangular die because I need that embossed part on all four sides. If I had used the rectangular die, it might not fit in the card and I wouldn't be able to achieve the look that I wanted! (You can see in the video what I'm blabbering about)

I love creating little scenes on my cards! The little scenes sure would bring a smile on someone's face! After masking and ink blending the scene with Peeled Paint and Broken China distress inks I added droplets of water. The distress inks does reacts with water and create a nice texture on your card and this would definitely add something to your card.

The elephant from Birthday Friends stamp set is really very cute! I colored the image with Black Soot and Spun Sugar Distress Inks. Water-coloring with distress ink is very easy but you need to practice a little before starting the actual project. I'm not very good with water-colours, I stand a mile away from this but I like try once in a while ;) I added some shimmer with Wink of Stella clear glitter pen. Can you see the shimmer? Love it!

Once everything was adhered I felt something was missing in the card so I added a few yellow sequins from Lawn Fawn. I think the yellow color matches perfectly with the blue and green colors! I stamped the sentiment from the same Birthday Friends Stamp Set. I just wanted to add a sentiment on the inside of the card too so I used 'happy' from Mix Mash and 'Father's day' from Everyday Sentiments.

I'm sharing a video on how I put this card together. You can watch it HERE or at my YouTube Channel. If you like the video please give it a thumbs up, share it with your friends and also don't forget to subscribe to my channel.

Overall this is a very simple card. And I hope you would give this a try! Thank you so much for stopping by. Take care and I will see you soon! :)
