Card For Dad

It's Father's Day on Sunday! Did you forget? Bet your dh wouldn't LET you forget! :-) Tis the day to pamper all those lovely dad's out there. If you haven't made a card yet, take a look at this very easy tomake card from our DT member Caroline Scattergood. Caroline used Basic Grey Highline to make this fabulous card, which is super for many occasions:

Monochrome black and white cards look fab when put together with a pop of colour.  I struggle with a more masculine card but this type of colour scheme works really well, and the Basic Grey Highline  has black and white amongst the colour scheme so I was able to do this card, as well as more feminine ones, with just the one set of papers.



I layered up the two yellow papers in the pack and sewed them together.



The stars were cut using a die cut and then were all edged with black ink.  The white stars were covered with a little bit of Stickles-Crystal.  I love a bit of glitter!  I then placed the stars onto the card to create a banner effect and sewed them into place leaving long thread ends either side of the banner.



I then popped two smaller stars in the two top corners.



I then added some buttons, and used a rub-on for the ‘dad’ wording.



I love this colour combination and with the Basic Grey Highline set you can have it all – Pastels, Brights and Black and White.  Couldn’t ask for more from paper really!
