Fathers Day Handmade Card; Make a Fathers Day Card

Try a Vintage Fathers Day Handmade Card Idea

Vintage Fathers Day Handmade Card Idea - www.Stamp4Joy.comFor this Fathers Day handmade card design I pulled out an assortment of stamp sets to create a vintage-inspired collage:

Everything was stamped randomly in Soft Suede and Early Espresso inks, usually stamping off first on scrap paper before stamping the card front.   Everything was sponged using those two ink colors, too.

The “sprocket” circles were created out of Copper Foil paper using my Big Shot and a combination of the Layering Circles Framelits, both the scalloped edge and smooth edge.  I added one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits circles for the largest circle in Rich Razzleberrey, and a regular circle framelit for the Bermuda Bay one.

Fathers Day Handmade Card Idea - www.Stamp4Joy.comI wanted to create a bit of a patina on the Copper Foil paper, so I used a variety of Stampin' Blends to give the illusion of age and then applied Tuxedo Black Memento ink to them, too.  Love it!  They still show up pretty shiny in the photo, and it appears I didn't do enough to one of the circles, but I still like the look achieved.

I also colored in the hot-air balloons using my Stampin' Blends.  I love how well they were able to blend, even on Crumb Cake card stock!  A few tiny, delicate pearls were added for additional texture.

The card greeting used inside pairs perfectly with the greeting on the front, both of them coming from Rooted in Nature.

A little sponging along the edges in Early Espresso and your Fathers Day handmade card is all set to add your personal sentiment!
