This week’s Global Design Project challenge was a sketch challenge, if you want to join in you can find more details here. I love sketch challenges as they give a real focus to my crafting which is sometimes needed when you mountains of pretty products begging to be used.
After having a look through my supplies I decided to base my card around this stripy paper from the By the Shore DSP collection, which has sadly been left in its pack as I’m not a huge Calypso Coral fan. Anyway this paper just reminded me of my dad’s favourite summer shirt, which if you’d met him would find odd as he’s a sheep farmer from Yorkshire so can usually been found in wellies and overalls and not dressed up and most certainly not in Coral!
I decided to make him a Father’s Day card as June 18th will soon be here and he really is one in a million, he has to put with me as a daughter doesn’t he. I chose Calypso Coral as a card base and actually really like how it turned out.
The sentiment on the T-Shirt is actually two stamps. I stamped the One in A Million sentiment and then wanted the word Dad. So I took the Rad Dad stamp from the same set and covered the Rad part up with washi tape, I used the Mint Macaron Vine washi from the Affectionately Yours collection which fitted perfectly. Ink up the stamp and then remove the washi before stamping and there you have a perfectly stamped greeting…first time too.
The You’re the Best sentiment comes from the Urban District stamp set which is perfect for fathers day cards. I finished the card off with a few enamel stars in Dapper Denim because I love them and they just add that little something.
I hope you like todays project and I really hope my dad likes it too.
