Card A Day Blog Post: Father's Day

Hi everyone, it's time for another card for the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is Father's Day. I decided to make a card that my grand son's can give to their father, my son.

To make my card, I started with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card stock base, and added the stars design paper from the Die Cut With A View, Rock Star stack, for my background, cut at 5.25" x 4". Then, on my Silhouette, and the Sure Cut's A Lot program, I created a file by using two overlapping diamonds sized to fit seven 1" squares in it, cut it out using white card stock, and adhered it to the top of the design paper. I then cut out 1" squares cut out of silver mirror paper, embossed them with the Diamond Plate, Cuttlebug embossing folder, then adhered them to the double diamonds. I got this idea from another blog I saw, but I can't find the blog again so I can give the original creator credit, but when I find it, I will be adding their blog to this post.

For my image, I used the motorcycle stamp from the Hot Off The Press, Small Stamps set, Motorcycle. I stamped the image using clear Versamark embossing pad, sprinkled black embossing powder in it, then heat embossed it using my heat gun. I then cut the image out, added dimensional tape to the back, then added it to the middle of the double diamond. For the wording in the corner, I used the " Born To Be Wild" stamp, also included in the stamp set, using the same embossing method as the motorcycle. On the inside, I will stamp " Happy Father's Day" using one of the stamps I have in my stash.

I hope my son likes this card, and I hope you did too. I would love to hear what you think, so if you have the chance, please leave me a comment.
