SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn’t be more excited…can you tell?!
Now that summer is here, I should hopefully have more time to post more often. These posts will include new cupcake flavors, DIY projects, and scrapbooking creations. And of courrse, I will post about everything from the spa party I hosted this past weekend! It went really well, in case you were wondering 🙂 But more on that later! Today, I want to share with you a cute father’s day card idea.
I perused Pinterest for some inspiration and came across three contenders. Since I couldn’t make up my mind about which one to make, I asked my husband and he picked this one. I especially like the teal blue with orange accents 🙂
On top of the chevron paper, I cut out a significantly smaller piece of teal polka dot paper that mirrored the chevron piece. I made the polka dot paper smaller so that you could see the chevron print behind it.
I bought some canvas looking ribbon and cut a long enough piece to fit the width of the card. I couldn’t find any twine like in the original picture, but I had some black twine-like ribbon that I tied to the canvas ribbon. At the end of the post, you’ll see where I cut both the canvas and black ribbon down (so it wasn’t hanging off the sides).
I used a stencil to trace and cut out a piece of cream colored shimmery pearlized paper for the ‘happy father’s day’ part of the card. I cut out (by hand) a smaller portion of the same shape of a darker tan colored shimmery pearlized paper and glued them together.
Lastly, I glued down the ‘happy father’s day’ portion to the rest of the card. I made sure that the ‘father’s’ part of the card lined up with the canvas ribbon. And then in the right hand corner, I added three orange brads.
Pretty awesome, don’t you think? I know both of my dads will love it! Are you going to be doing anything special with/for your father for father’s day? Hubby and I will be traveling to my parents house this weekend to spend it with him. We’ve got a couple of activities planned and I’ll be trying a derby pie cupcake (my dad loves derby pie)! I’ll post more about that next week sometime 🙂 I hope you all have a great week! Happy crafting,
