Does the title of the blog make sense now? I thought this entire set of ducks was so funny when I first saw them. Maybe I will use another one later in the week to create another card. For now, let's focus on this one shall we? I started with a base card of Always Artichoke measuring 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2". I added a layer of River Rock card stock measuring 4" x 5 1/4". This is a color I always seem to forget about but it goes very nicely with the Artichoke. I ran it through the big shot using the polka dots impression folder and then sponged the edges with Always Artichoke ink. I adhered it to the base card with runner adhesive.
I began my judge by stamping the image onto a piece of Whisper White card stock using VersaMark ink. I sprinkled black embossing powder on it and heat embossed the image. Once it cooled, I ran it through the big shot using the Labels Collection of framelits. I found the size that fit around the image, put it through the machine to cut it out and I was ready to color. I chose to use my colored pencils today. I like the soft look they give the image. Once the coloring was finished, I edged the frame with a sponge and Always Artichoke ink. It is attached to the base card using runner adhesive.
The greeting I chose to use for the front comes from the same stamp set as the image. I stamped it onto Whisper White using VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I cut the strip down and rounded the corners. I then layered it onto a piece of Always Artichoke cut slightly larger than the saying and rounded those corners. I used runner adhesive to layer this. Once it was layered, I attached the entire greeting using dimensionals.
I knew the saying I wanted to use for the inside but did not have it on a stamp. So I started by stamping the Happy Father's Day from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set onto Whisper White using Always Artichoke ink. I punched the saying out with the Modern Label punch. I then sponged the edges with Always Artichoke ink. I also punched a modern label out of River Rock, cut it in half and added it to the sides as a sort of frame with runner adhesive. The only thing missing was the word "A". To add it, I used my Always Artichoke marker and wrote it myself. I then attached the saying to the card with runner adhesive.
Tomorrow I will have another dad card so be sure to come back. I am so glad you stopped by today. I will see you all tomorrow!! Happy stamping.
