Happy Father's Day card by designer Patty Folchert

June is the month to celebrate our hard working Father’s, and an excuse to use this crazy cute new Hampton Art fox stamp! Combined with some new Summer Red Raspberry Soup papers and another new clear stamp set, the results are irresistible.

Happy Father's Day card by Patty Folchert

To begin I dug deep into my vintage Jillibean stash and located an all-time favorite for the base, Milk from the Apple Cheddar Soup collection. It helped create my forest/nature theme with it’s dark brown woodgrain pattern, next I layered on the new Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup green woodgrain paper, “Cubed Potatoes” as a mat. 

Using my sewing machine with white thread I stitched on a cut-out bite size bits (backside) for the panel to display the sentiment side. The next three stamps I used from the new clear stamp set SCO687. Using that grid paper to help measure the center,  I quickly added the wreath topper and bottom in green ink. The “happy” banner was stamped in brown ink and then fussy cut out to add onto card with 3D foam dots. Then I added the “FATHERS” alphabean stickers in Gumbo Green, to finish the sentiment I then added “DAY” in Braised brown alphabeans. Then I switched to the other side of the card and used a Stampables Woodgrain mini bag layered onto the green mat. That way I can slide in my hubby’s favorite giftcard, probably Cabela’s. Then on plain white cardstock I stamped the 2 fern stamps from the SCO684 clear stamp set in two shades of green. Then I stamped the fox pair onto plain kraft paper using brown ink and fussy cut them out. Next I used my scissors to cut out a slit in my fern stamps to allow the foxes to nestle down into their happy nest. Then I folded up a few of the fern tips and adhered to card with 3D foam dots. Last I added a peapod flower from the Summer Red Raspberry collection in blue. 

There you have it a sweet card/giftcard in one combo perfect for Father’s Day or any occasion. Just by changing the sentiment this card would work for Birthday, Babysitter, Mother’s Day, Baby even everyday friendship. I also want to shout out a great big thank you to all the hard working Fathers out there, we appreciate you!

Daddy’s Girl,
Patty
