For The Record

Hey everybody! I hope your week has started off nicely! Absolutely no complaints here… we are in our happy place doing what we love and we’re having some gorgeous weather! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring our Basis cardstock that’s on sale this month. This line is one of my favorites so be sure to stock up while it’s on sale – there are some fantastic colors available! I’m in Father’s Day card mode right now (more commissioned by our little local hardware/everything else store) and this one is really cute!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from our Basis Gray cardstock along with layering panels from Basis Burgundy cardstock and two coordinating patterned papers which I adhered together to create a nice masculine background. I stamped the record from the Stampin’ Up ‘For The Record’ stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut it with a Spellbinders Standard Circle die, paper piecing the inside heart with the burgundy cardstock. I die cut several extra circles from the gray cardstock and layered them behind the stamped record for a little dimension. I stamped the diagonal stripes for the large sentiment on an 80# Basis White scrap in Catherine Pooler Twilight ink and embossed the sentiment in Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder over Catherine Pooler Midnight ink. I stamped the small sentiment (from the same stamp set) in Tuxedo Black ink in the bottom right corner which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Dolphin cardstock and embellished it with strips of the patterned paper and Basis Burgundy cardstock used on the front. I stamped the inside sentiment from the Stampin’ Up ‘Happy & Heartfelt’ stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink.

And one more peek… totally loving how this turned out! This Basis cardstock is so awesome and makes the nicest cards! My dad’s been gone since 1975 but I sure enjoy creating Father’s Day cards for other people! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
