Happy Father's Day

Hello there, today I have a card to share that I made for my Dad for Father's Day. I used Hero Arts products for this one, I kept it simple but I do like how it turned out.

I started off by creating my background. I stamped the Irregular Grid Bold Prints on to a piece of watercolour paper using Versamark Ink. I then applied clear embossing powder and heat set. I took various shades of blue and green Dr Ph Martin's Hydrus Watercolor and added them to the panel. I mixed them together on the panel with water and then set it aside to dry.
I took the Father's Day sentiment from the Best dad wood block stamp set and stamped this on to blue cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and then heat set. I cut this in to a strip and then cut banner edges on to the sides. I took the Luggage Tag Alphabet Frame Cuts and cut the letter A three times and the D six times. I stacked these up so that they were three layers high each, using liquid glue.
Once the background piece was dry, I die cut it using one of the Nesting Postage Stamps Infinity Dies. I added this on to a white A2 card base with foam tape. I then added the DAD letters with liquid glue and the banner piece with more foam tape.

Thank you so much for visiting me today. We seem to be having a bit of heat wave here in London at the moment. I know I shouldn't complain since it is usually raining (haha!) but I am not good with the heat. Where are those ice lollies?! I hope you have a great rest of the weekend!


  1. Heat wave up here in Yorkshire too! Enjoying it, but need to water the plants more :) Lovely card - those Watercolours really are vibrant and I love the postage stamp frame. I bought one fairly recently from Memory Box in a sale and they really are nice. Xx

  2. Great card Michelle, love the colours. I'm not good in the heat either, have been hiding indoors in my craft room all weekend with the fans going full blast lol
    Hugs, Kaz xx

  3. Love your sweet Father's Day card! What a gorgeous blue background!

  4. Simple is always best for men's cards & this one is perfect!

  5. Oh this is wonderful! Such an awesome masculine design.
