Welcome to another Fabulous Friday! Today’s project is an alternate card created using the May Paper Pumpkin kit. This kit is all about the men in our lives. We all struggle with masculine cards and this kit is just in time to help us for Father’s Day, Anniversary, Birthday and more. Here’s a look at the stamp set:
I absolutely love the cursive font used in this set! I can see using it for many other projects in the future. Did you see today’s video? If not, you can view it on my Youtube Channel. Here are the measurements for today’s card:
- Card base in Mossy Meadow cardstock, cut at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
- Whisper White cardstock cut at 4″ x 11″, scored at 2 1/4″ and 7 1/2″, and 3 3/4″ x 4″
Did you notice the color of Mossy Meadow? Yes, that is a returning past In Color that will be available June 1st with the launch of the new catalog. I was very happy to see that one come back! Now if you don’t have it, just use a different coordinating color like Crumb Cake for your card base. Using the tri-fold card in the kit, trim it to 4″ in width, then trim off the two patterned ends. Fold the score lines on the Whisper White cardstock, then adhere the trimmed off pattern pieces on the ends. Take a piece of Linen Thread and wrap it around the section that has the wood grain adhered to it three times. I did the “cheater method”, meaning I taped one side of the thread to the back of the cardstock, wrapped it around, then taped the other side. Once it’s secured, I adhered the 3 3/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White to cover the thread and the 1/4″ piece of the patterned paper that hung over the edge of the card base. I think this gives your card a more finished look. Then I grabbed a scrap piece of Whisper White and stamped the I Love You sentiment, then punched it out with the Tailored Tag Punch. Then to give it a matted look, I gently pressed each edge into the Mossy Meadow ink pad and set it aside to dry. While that was drying, I adhered the Whisper White to the Mossy Meadow. When the Tailored Tag Punch was dry, I added two of the mini dimensionals that were included in the kit, and layered it over the Linen Thread. I took one of the smaller buttons from the True Gentlemen Buttons and added it to the bottom of the tag with a mini glue dot. I tied a double bow in Linen Thread and added it to the button with another mini glue dot. I then took one of the foiled edged banners and stamped the Father’s Day sentiment. To stamp the coordinating sentiments on the badge die cut, I set the banner on the badge, then positioned the two coordinating stamps on either side of it, then laid the block on the stamps. That is one of the things I like the most about our photopolymer stamp sets, you can see exactly where you need to stamp or place on the block. After those were stamped, I added two more of the mini dimensionals to the back of the badge and added it to the inside of the card. I folded the score lines on the badge, added another two dimensionals to the banner and added it over the badge. I love how it turned out! And since it’s a tri-fold card, you still have room to write whatever you want on the inside!
