Father's Day Card

Hey everyone! Wow its been a while since I've updated my blog! I just wanted to share the card that I made for my dad for Father's Day yesterday. Here's what it looked like:

I used kraft cardstock as the base which was 5.5" square after folding. The next layer of black cardstock was cut at 5.25" square. The next layer of blue patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye:Stella and Rose: Hattie paper collection was cut at 5" square. I mounted all of those layers together and attached them to the front of the card.

Next I used several different letter stickers to spell out "Happy Father's Day". The white stickers are American Crafts Remarks stickers, the black foam stickers are American Crafts Thickers, and the large black letters with white grid pattern on them are from Basic Grey's Origins collection. :)

The idea for the flowers and clouds partially came from Kristina Werner's recent Thanks card using a landscape with flowers and hillsides. Although I originally was not planning on creating flowers or clouds at all! I made the "flowers" with one inch circles and large silver square brads. I cut some thin strips of black cardstock for the stems and hand cut some leaves out of some white patterned paper from Basic Grey's Basics manilla collection. The clouds are also hand drawn/cut from the same paper.

I popped the flowers on varying levels of foam adhesive as well as one of the clouds :) And here's what the back looked like as well!

Thanks so much for reading this! Let me know what you thought of this card or if you have any questions! :)
