I decided my father-in-law was “man enough” to handle a little sparkle on his father’s day card this year.
I used Peel-Offs, Glitter Peel-Offs and Silk Microfine Glitter from Elizabeth Craft Designs to make the plane and border stickers. I cut one of the strips of stars apart to create the stars in the background.
I colored the plane with Copic markers and used a sheet of glittered paper from American Crafts as the background.
The inside stamp is by KaiserCraft. I used a few extra planes from the sticker sheet to accent the inside.
He loved it … even suggested that I could sell it for $1.50. Yes, my father-in-law has a unique sense of humor!
For Father’s Day, I wanted to do something a little different. So, like I do with many of my projects, I combined products from several different companies to come up with a unique Father’s Day “Card.”
I started with the Lifestyle Crafts Folder with Insert die. I used Real Wood Paper by Creative Imaginations to keep it masculine. I folded on the scored lines and added a bit of Distress Ink to the edges. Then, I used Memory Book Glue Dots to adhere the pieces together, making a little folder with pockets. Memory Book Glue Dots are perfect for this project because they are so thin, you don’t even notice they are there.
Next, I stamped the image (Crafty Secrets) on Cryogen paper, using Memento Ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I used Memory Book Glue Dots to adhere it to a piece of cardstock and then to adhere that to the cover.
I added Robin’s Nest Dew Drops with Micro Glue Dots. They fit perfectly and hold great.
Inside, I handcut a cardstock liner to serve as the background and added a cardstock label (part of the die set). Then, I tied some May Arts string to the charm (My Mind’s Eye) and adhered it to the label with Craft Glue Dots.
Then, I added a few pages (again, part of the die set) where messages and photos can be added. They can be tucked into the folders.
Finally, I adhered a photo to the folder with Memory Glue Dots.
I love the way it turned out!
