Father’s Day Card – Part 2

Yesterday I posted a photo of the Father’s Day card I made for my son-in-law.  I asked for viewers to guess what the card represents.  I gave you a clue that it is something that most men want in their garage!  Here’s the photo again.

Father's Day Card - Part 2

Thanks to those who emailed me their guess!  The photo below will definitely give you the answer.

It’s a 3-drawer tool cabinet!  When you pull open the first drawer (or pull down…lol), you see tools that most men, and women, will use:  hammer, nail, measuring tape, and drill.  I certainly use these tools regularly!

When you pull open the second drawer, you’ll see a bolt, mallet, and channel-lock tongue and grove pliers.

Pulling open the third drawer, you’ll see a screwdriver, wrench, and needle nose pliers.

The three drawers and their contents are on the front part of the card and the inside contains my Happy Father’s Day greetings.  I die cut and colored with copics the tools in the cabinet.  The tools die cuts are from Our Daily Bread Designs Workshop Tools and Tool Time die sets.

Just for the record, my son-in-law LOVED the card.  I hope you enjoyed it and will leave any questions or comments in the comments section or send me an email!  Have a great day!

Color On Color Emboss Resist Technique – Happy Father’s Day

I love the art of blending inks. However, I had not tried before the Color on Color Emboss Resist Technique. After trying it, I now know that I really, really like it and will be using it in future art. The card share I have for you today features this technique for a Happy Father’s Day card.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE COLOR ON COLOR EMBOSS RESIST TECHNIQUE:

1. Cut card stock accordingly:

8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ for card base

5-1/4″ x 4″ for 1st layer

5″ x 3-3/4″ of Whisper White Card Stock

2. Select a stamp that you want to be the main feature of the card. (I used the feather stamp; however, I think it would work best with a solid stamp with few designs within).

3. Select three colors of classic ink that are light shades.

4. Using a sponge dauber, swirl your first light color onto the Whisper White Card Stock.

5. Swirl your second light color onto the Whisper White Card Stock, and don’t worry about overlapping the colors.

6. Swirl your third light color onto the Whisper White Card Stock, and then look for places where you want to blend the colors and do that with the daubers. Don’t worry about the look too much as it will completely change when you add the darker color.

7. AFTER the ink dries, rub the embossing buddy over the complete piece of card stock.

8. Cover your selected stamp with VersaMark and stamp the image randomly on the card stock.

9. Cover with the clear embossing powder and heat set. Let it cool.

10. Swirl you dark color of ink all over the piece of card stock. You may need to do this a couple times or more.

11. Using a paper towel, rub the excess dark ink from the embossed images. Isn’t it cool how the clear embossing takes on the colors?

12. After reaching the desired colors on the colored piece of card stock, use the stamp image to create a center piece for the card.

13. Adhere the pieces together and add your desired embellishments.

14. Add your sentiment to the card.

Enjoy!!

God’s Blessings!
