You Are a Fabulous, Amazing, Super Dad

I’m a little late posting this Father’s Day card I made for my husband because we went to Texas for a couple of weeks before the holiday and I didn’t get time to post it before we left.  I have the most amazing husband.  He is kind, generous, hard working, honey, supportive, and every other wonderful adjective you can think of.  I am truly blessed.  So, I decided to use the new Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Sentiments Stamp and Die to create his card because I could use some of the adjectives that describe him.

I decided to use a tropical theme because recently Michael had to throw out his beloved Hawaiian shirt, so I bought him a couple of new ones for Father’s Day.  His favorite color is blue and I added a little yellow accents as well.  The parrot is from the Hero Arts Color Layering Parrot stamp set.  I used Altenew inks (listed below).  The branch is from the Altenew Vintage Floral stamp set.

Once the stamping was complete the parrot was cut with the matching die and the background leaves and branch was cut using Lawn Fawns Reveal Wheel dies.  The reveal wheel designs was easy to assemble and I love the way it turned out.

I pulled some blue cardstock from my stash for the card base.  The reveal wheel panel was adhered to the front using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.   Once I had everything in place I felt the background was too stark of a white and so I carefully ink blended the background using Distress Tumbled Glass and Broken China inks.  The final embellishment was to add some Pretty Pink Post Clear Droplets with Ranger Multi Medium Matte and the card was done.
