Welcome to my crafty blog. It’s Father’s Day next month (on 20th June), so I’ve started getting some cards made ready for sale. I’ve gone with Stampin’ Up!’s retired ‘glass half full’ set for this one – I think it works really well for masculine cards (although quite a few ladies I know are partial to a glass or two as well!). I’ve also taken inspiration from this week’s challenge at The Paper Players for the colours in this one (have to be honest, I struggled with this colour palette until I thought of this card)
I started by stamping the row of small wine glasses in Archival ‘shadow grey’ across the middle of a square of white card. I stamped the centre set first, and then added the ones either side, so it was lined up on the card. I then coloured them in with a SU marker in ‘poppy parade’, and added the sentiments in black Archival ink. the lower one is from the SU set, but the Father’s Day one is from a new Lawn Fawn set I’ve just got.
Next step was to stamp the large wine glass onto a scrap piece of card, again in the ‘shadow grey’ and colour it with the ‘poppy parade’ marker. I fussy cut it and then attached it to the topper using foam pads. I finished the card by mounting the topper onto a square of black card and then onto a 6×6 card blank.
Another card that was straightforward to make. It works for lots of different occasions as well, and I’ll probably produce a few more of these. Thanks for dropping in – I’ll be back tomorrow.
