Can you believe Father's Day is a month away? June 17th to be exact.
That means it is time to start making cards for the Fathers, Grandpas, Uncles and other important men in your life. There's no better way to tell them you appreciate them than a giving them a handmade gift from the heart.
Need a little inspiration to get started? Here are a few projects from the Technique Tuesday Design Team that are sure to fuel your creative juices.
Want to tell your husband or boyfriend to have a happy day? Use the Sassy Guy stamps to make a card like Heather's. Really focus on the message by making a clean and graphic card that emphasizes the words!
Like to use patterned paper when you make cards? It can be hard at times to find the perfect patterned paper so take a cue from Jill. Put your stamps to use and make your own! Jill created the black background paper by heat embossing the plane (from the What a Guy stamp set) over and over with white embossing powder. Not a fan of embossing stamped images? Bypass the embossing. Take a piece of white cardstock and stamp the plane on it and over with green, blue and brown inks.
Remember, not all cards have to say "Happy Father's Day" on them. Consider creating a card like this and then writing a Father's Day inspired sentiment on the inside.
Want to impress your favorite fella with your crafty skills? Stamp an image like the measuring tapes on watercolor paper and then color the images in watercolors. Add a shadow under your tape measures to ground them. Also remember to use waterproof ink to stamp your images in!
Consider trying something out of the box when you sit down to make your Father's Day cards. Instead of stamping on white cardstock, stamp on a non-traditional color, such as kraft or tan. Planning on coloring the images in? Stamp a few images on scratch paper and experiment with your markers to make the sure the colors will look good on your card.
