Happy Father’s Day!! (a card for Dad)

Did you know that Provocraft made five Father’s Day card designs available for FREE?  They’re  still available, but just until June 19th!! They’re all designed and ready to cut in the Cricut Craftroom, so go check them out!
I was excited to see a golfing themed one that I could use for my own dad… I hid the contours of the sentiment that was included with the design so that it didn’t cut and I could stamp it instead.

While the card looks beautiful on it’s own, with a blank background, I wanted to spice it up with some coloured vellum.  I used green and blue and hand-cut shapes to fill in each space.  I used green in a small space (on the putting green) and then over the whole grass section again so that the putting area seemed like a darker shade than the rest.  I hope the pictures help to explain more 🙂 …

Creating layers of vellum on the back side of the card. This is the same shade of vellum, just layered over another piece in the one spot.

I used terrifically tacky tape to adhere my vellum layers, as shown below:

After my vellum layers were adhered to the back of the front (now that seems confusing!), I attached a 5″x5″ white square behind the layers so that the seams of vinyl weren’t showing on the inside of the card.   Here is the effect all finished:

Flip it over, gasp and say, “It worked! It worked!!” 😉

Then I just finished it off with my stamped sentiment (from Say It In Style), some pearls and bakers twine… voila!  Happy Father’s Day, Dad!!

…and Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and fatherly figures out there today!!

Thanks for stopping by!
