Celebrate Mew - Father's Day Card // Card Creations

11:00:00 AM

Hello crafty friends! I have so, so, so happy to be back in my craft room on a semi-regular basis. When I thought of what I was going to do this summer, I knew it would be hard. Having a full time job with a 40 minute commute, plus a full time schedule of classes can be overwhelming at times. Luckily, I have gotten into a little bit of a grove with my videos and creations, so I can have the best of both worlds! Soon enough I'll be done with school and then craft even more! Today, I am sharing a Father's Day card to share with you all. 


Masculine cards can be hard for me to create. I have a lot of girly items in my stash, so this was a tiny bit harder. It is still a little girly from the scripty fonts and the glitter embossing powder, but I had to! My card starts with a base of 110lb white cardstock cut to 4 1/4" x 11" and folded in half to make it an A2 sized card. I really wanted to add something to the background, but didn't know what to do. Eventually I found this is light brown washi tape and created a background with small strips. It's an easy way to use up that washi and to add more interest!



Next, I used two different sizes of my stitched rectangle dies to make the main layers. I cut them out of kraft paper and a piece of patterned paper from DCWV. I wanted to used this new stamp set from Lawn Fawn called "Meow You Doin'". Of course I love this stamp set because it is full of puns! I stamped this cat image using Memento black ink and colored it with colored pencils. I tried to make it look like my cats, but I didn't have the best color. To emphasize this cute kitty I used some chipboard brackets. I was also hoping this would add some more masculinity, but it didn't really.


I used a word die from Waffle Flower to create the first section of the sentiment. Then, I used a scrap of the background paper to emboss this beautiful gold portion of the sentiment. "Celebrate mew" is so cute and my father loves puns. I popped the banner up on some foam adhesive for more interest. I used Wow! gold embossing powder for it.  


Lastly, to decorate the front of the card I used a couple of things. One of these things is so old I cannot even tell you where I got them from. I'm also pretty positive that I have never used any of these miniature white felt stars. I sprinkled them around in different clusters. I believe they were made by KI Memories. I also used enamel dots from Echo Park in two different colors to add contrast.


To finally finish the card, I added another sentiment on the inside. This is also from the same Lawn Fawn stamp set. I thought that just the sentiment was a little boring, so I grabbed this little paw print and scattered them around. That finishes it up! I hope you enjoyed this alternative father's day card. It sure was a lot of fun to put together! Thanks for stopping by!
