Stampin' Up! A Good Man Father's Day Card

Hey, hey, hey, it's Masculine Monday!  This is the card I created for my dad for Father's Day this year.  I know Father's Day is over, but it would also make a fantastic birthday card.  For the sentiment on the front, I used A Cut Above stamps, which also have a 'happy birthday' stamp. 

Basic White Thick Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Beauty of the Earth DSP ~ 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" (green) and 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" (wood)
Basic White Cardstock ~ 2-1/4" x 3-1/2"and 1" x 1"
Pacific Point Cardstock ~ 3-1/4" x 3"

  1. Stamp the image on Basic White CS (2-1/4" w) and the sentiment on Pacific Point CS.
  2. Color the image in with watercolor pencils.
  3. Lightly go over the watercoloring with a Blender Pen, cleaning it off between each color change.
  4. Use Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out your frame.  One for the inside and one for the outside. Then use the Potted Succulents Dies to cut out the sentiment.
  5. Glue the DSP background, watercolored image and frame to the front of your card base as shown.
  6. Layer the ribbons across the bottom of your frame, as shown, using glue dots to attach the ribbons.
  7. Add the sentiment to the top of the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  8. Stamp the heart using Versamark ink on the smallest piece of Basic White CS.  Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder and set with the Heat Tool.
  9. Color in the heart with the Real Red Watercolor Pencil, then go over it lightly with a Blender Pen.
  10. Fussy cut the heart and add to the corner of the frame with a Stampin' Dimensional.

For the inside, I simply stamped sentiments from the stamp set.
