Fathers Day Card…Never too soon to make

Happy Saturday to all!

It’s never too soon to make your Fathers Day card and yes!  I have made mine already!

Using Fresh Squeezed Stamps which I just bought from a clearance sale, I decided to give it a go at making a more masculine card.

And this is what I have created, inspired by CASE(E) this Sketch layout, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, CASology - NBUS and Craft Stamper Magazine challenges.

First, I stamped all the black images (reel, fish and sentiment) using Memento Ink on a cardstock, in preparation to make a tag for the card.

Next, I colored the blue border using my Caran D’ache water soluble crayon and painted a blue border making it look like a stream.  It’s a different mix of blue shades from the crayons.

I stamped more blue fish using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Broken China.

I used heat tool to speed up the drying and dabbed Wink of Stella from Zig randomly to add some shimmer over the blue border.

Once I cut out the tag, I edge the four sides with Broken China Distress Ink.

And lastly, I adhered the tag onto the card base using foam tape.

I hope you like this Fathers Day card idea, have a great weekend!

    I love this card, too, Ren! You’re right, it’s not too early for making Father’s Day cards! I love the punny sentiment! I want to thank you for entering the CASology challenge again and invite you to also link it up with my NBUS challenge, where you can enter three times.

    I’m sorry my last comment was duplicated. It was maybe a glitch, but I had to try the captcha several times before it would take. I wonder if you would get more comments if you could remove that? I hope this one goes through! I hope to see you again soon! Hugs, Darnell
