Pretty Little Studio: To a Super Dad

Saturday, June 16, 2018

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  Just stopping back in to share a couple of timely, Father's Day cards that happen to be up on the Pretty Little Studio blog this am.  Enjoy!
Let's take a look at each individually.
I started this card by die-cutting the centers out of the largest stars in a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of our Feeling Dreamy print.  I then backed it with a slightly larger sheet of Feeling Thoughtful Vellum and anchored them both, to the white, cardstock, card face, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  Lots of Spain Star and Summer Night Die-Cut stars, some of which were popped up with foam tape, were then scattered across the face of the card, amidst those same blue stars that were previously die-cut from the centers of the Feeling Dreamy print.  The latter were also coated with layers of Clear Wink of Stella for shine.
The "TO A SUPER DAD" sentiment was created by stamping "TO A SUPER" in Jet Black ink and gold-embossing the "DAD" remainder on a Watercolor Shipping Tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow...
and grounded with a "lucky to have you" Lovely Words Black Sticker, backed with white cardstock and popped up with foam tape for more of that delicious dimension.  A trio of gold, star sequins completes the look.
The second card...
was created in exactly the same way as the first with the exception of a few different Spain Star and Summer Night Die-Cut stars being used...
in addition to a yellow Watercolor Shipping Tag, rather than the previously-used orange one.
The previous, "lucky to have you" Lovely Words Black Sticker was also swapped for one that reads "stay awesome".
That wraps things up for now, folks.  Thanks ever so much for stopping by!  Have an amazing weekend, friends; and a big, happy Father's Day to all you dads out there!
