Are you looking for a design for a Father’s Day Card? I suggest a side-step card with masculine elements. That was my choice for my card, “CottageCutz Happy Father’s Day Card“. Why did I title my card, CottageCutz Happy Father’s Day Card? Because I used several CottageCutz masculine dies to create my card. The Scrapping Cottage, the maker of CottageCutz dies, has so many wonderful dies from which to chose for any occasion. Check out its on-line store and blog.
The CottageCutz dies I used to create my card are the Fishing Pole & Boat Die, Jeep Die, Campfire Clothesline Die, Woodlands Dies, Rustic Sign & Trees Die, and Spring Grass Die. These and other dies used are listed near the end of this post.
I was feeling lazy when I made my card, so instead of cutting card stock and scoring it manually to form my card base, I used the Our Daily Bread Designs Side Step Card Die to create my side-step card base from white card stock. Then I cut a 3-1/2″ x 4″ piece of white card stock to attach to the back step of the base. Using various inks, I sponged the sky, water, and grass areas.
For the back step of the card, I die cut the fishing pole and boat from white card stock, colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers, glue together the pieces, and attached them to the step.
For the second step, I die cut the tent and flag with the Campfire Clothesline Die and from red, brown, and tan card stock; glued the pieces together; and attached them to the step. For the first step, I die cut from white card stock the jeep, colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers, and set aside. I used the Spring Grass die to cut from green card stock several pieces of grass and attached them to the three steps. Using the Lawn Fawn Road Border Dies, I cut the road from gray and yellow card stock, glued them together, and attached onto the first step. Then I attached the Jeep.
Using the Rustic Sign & Trees Die, I die cut the tree on the left side of the card with green and brown card stock, attached the pieces together, and added to the card base. I then die cut the sign from the Woodlands Dies, colored it with Copic Sketch Markers, added foam tape to the back, and attached it in front of the tree. That finished my card.
I love the card! What do you think of it?
