This week I decided to make this fun Father's day card for the upcoming holidays. This was actually my 3rd attempt, finally made something I am happy with! My dad is a Leo, so I was super happy when i realized I had this cute lion stamp that I could incorporate. Well since this is my first card post, let me know how I do with my direction and how to make them better!
I used White paper studio paper as well as the paper studio embossing plate for the bottom layer. I then lightly rubbed on some Distressed Ink in Antique Linen to add a little bit of color on the dots without staining the page.
On another sheet of white paper I stamped the image of the lion and balloon in Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black. While the ink dried I grabbed a waxed paper plate and stamped my Antique Linen pad directly on to the plate. I added some water to the side and used that with the Ink to color in the Lion. I then used the same technique with the Distressed Ink: Broken China to colorize the Balloon. I then stamped the Dad banner stamp using Broken china, and fussy cut a matching vellum piece to go on top, then attached it to the back of the lion.
I then cut a strip of Dilly Dally's wood plank paper from their 6x6 My Mind's eye set and glued a fussy cut velum scalloped strip to the back. I added dimensional adhesives to the back and fixed it to the card base. I then added dimensional adhesives to the lion and the balloon then drew the string in between them and I was done!
Pretty easy to make and it had a super cute result as well!
Happy crafting :D
