Best Dad father's day card

Hello my crafty friends.  How is it possible that we're already in June?  I am so not ready for the summer heat.  And it gets brutal here in Texas!!

I have my daughter coming home to celebrate Father's day.  Chances are she won't have a card for her dad.  Luckily, I have a few.

 I've been trying to use more of my supplies lately. So I brought our the Ranger Alcohol inks. These backgrounds are so very simple to make. I start by adding a little isopropyl alcohol to yupo paper. Then I added a few drops of Denim ink. Using my Tim Holtz Ink Blower, I move the ink around. I continued by adding in Citrus, Mermaid, and Silver ink and alcohol until I was happy with combination. I set this panel aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card.  

Have you seen these new Alphabet Tiles stamp? It's amazing. I cut down a piece of Eclipse Black Solid Core cardstock and prepped it with an anti-static tool. I inked up the stamp with Clear ink then turned the paper and stamped the image again. I applied Snow Flurries Embossing Powder and heat set it with a heat gun.

I fussy cut the letters that I was going to use for the sentiment. I'll set aside the rest for another project

I cut the yupo paper down to 4⅛ x 5¼ inches and glued it to Eclipse Black cardstock cut to 4¼ x 5½ inches. I then glued all that to an A2 Top Fold Card Base.

Many times I stamp and color images for future use. That was the case with this car from On Track stamp set.   I added dimensional foam to the back and placed it toward the bottom the the card. I also added foam tape to to each letter. I center the word DAD and then starting with the T, worked backward to make sure the letters were even spaced.

Thank you for stopping by.

Until next time - Jackie ❤
