Could the theme of today's #manuarycards be any more obvious? : ) The large letter dies that I own are, in fact, quite large, and really wouldn't allow me to fit any more letters onto one card, so no "Grandpa, Uncle or Brother." A simple plaid "dad" card it is! But, if you have smaller letter dies, you could create similar cards, but have more variety in the words.
*Please note all of these cards were made the same way, I simply used alternating color combinations.
The base of these A2 sized cards are made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Gina Marie Stitched Rectangle dies, I cut a piece of white cardstock. Then I die cut the letters "DAD" on the stitched white rectangle. I lined the back of the letter cutouts with a piece of plaid cardstock (in red, blue or green). I adhered the white cardstock onto a coordinating color mat before adhering both pieces to a white cardstock base. On thin strips of coordinating cardstock, I stamped various sentiments in Versamark ink and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I notched the ends of both sentiments before adhering them over the word "dad" with 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
I mentioned earlier this month, when I began creating more masculine cards, that I found a black, gold and white color combination was an easy way to achieve a masculine look, so I also recreated these cards using those three colors:
Do you have a preference for one look versus the other?
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
