Happy Father's Day - Rooted In Nature


Happy Father's Day! I hope you fathers out there had a wonderful day today. I know my hubby and dad both had a great day. We ate at a local BBQ restaurant, and went to my parents' house to give the two dads their presents and spent the day together. It was nice.

Before ending the day, I wanted to share the card I made my hubby, Ken. I'll share the one I made my dad tomorrow. I used the new Rooted In Nature Bundle to make Ken's card. I really love this bundle, and the trees in this set are wonderful! I love having dies to die-cut the trees, leaves, and more from the stamp set, too.


Dimensions:

  • Crumb Cake:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (card base) & 3" x 2" (happy die-cut)
  • Soft Suede:  2-3/4" x 4" (image mat)
  • Very Vanilla:  2-1/2" x 4" (image), 2" x 3" (tree die-cut) & 3" x 3/4" (greeting tag)
  • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack:  5-1/4" x 4"
  • Burlap Ribbon:  6"

Instructions:

  1. Fold the Crumb Cake card base piece in half (fold on top) to form the card base. Tie a single-knot into the center of the Burlap Ribbon. Wrap the ribbon around the left side of the DSP piece, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the piece using SNAIL Adhesive. Reinforce it with scotch tape. Attach the piece to the middle of the card front.
  2. Ink the narrow, tall tree stamp from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set with the Mossy Meadow marker (leaves) and the Soft Suede marker (trunk) from the Neutrals Stampin' Write Markers. Stamp the tree onto the left side of the largest Very Vanilla piece, and then stamp it again in another place without re-inking. Do the same again, stamping the first time onto the right side of the piece, and stamping again somewhere else. Using a Sponge Dauber and a Pool Party Classic Stampin' Pad, sponge the top three-fourths of the piece to make the sky. Using another sponge dauber and an Old Olive Classic Stampin Pad, sponge the bottom fourth to make the ground. Attach the piece to the center of the Soft Suede piece. Then, attach it onto the card, next to the burlap ribbon.
  3. Ink the narrow, tall tree stamp again using the same markers as before, and stamp it onto the Very Vanilla tree die-cut piece. Die-cut the tree out with its coordinating die from the Nature's Roots Framelits Dies. Attach the tree to the bottom, center of the attached tree image piece using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (see picture).
  4. Die-cut the "Happy" part of the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die out of the smallest Crumb Cake piece. Trim any part of the "Birthday" part that is die-cut off with Paper Snips. Attach the die-cut onto the right side of the card using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (see picture). Stamp the "Father's Day" stamp from the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set onto the smallest Very Vanilla piece using the Mossy Meadow marker. Punch the greeting out with Classic Label Punch. Attach a gold pearl from the Metallic Pearls onto each end of the label. Attach it under the "Happy" die-cut using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.
