Hi friends! I hope you’re having a great weekend and some good weather where you are! It’s absolutely gorgeous here in southwestern Colorado! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #155 – Anything Goes! I created a Father’s Day card featuring the C.C. Designs Large Mouth Bass rubber stamp. This stamp is one I’ve had in my stash for several years and I do believe this is the first time I’ve used it! It’s a nice large stamp that’s great for masculine cards and I love it!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with half layering panels from two coordinating patterned papers in the Recollections Bold Basics paper pad which I adhered to the card base with a narrow strip of Stampin’ Up So Saffron cardstock adhered to the seam. I stamped the C.C. Designs Large Mouth Bass image on Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers, and cut it with a Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers die. I adhered the die cut image to the front of the card and stamped the Father’s Day sentiment from the Trinity Stamps A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything stamp set. I added two Eyelet Outlet Green Enamel dots to the upper corners along with Ranger Glossy Accents to the water droplets on the image, and set it aside to dry.
I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with leftover strips of patterned paper and yellow cardstock used on the front. I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Mom stamp set (yep, a feminine stamp set for this masculine card because it’s a great sentiment and it fits!) in black ink and layered the panel on yellow cardstock.
And one more look… such an awesome rubber stamp for a masculine card and I don’t know why I haven’t used it before now!
