Best Dad Ever Quick Masculine Birthday Card

Today I’m sharing a card that I made for the Fab Friday 12 Color Challenge.  I thought that the colors would work well with the ties from the Best Dad Ever stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  Here are the colors:

And here is my card:

Best Dad Ever

Here is the list of products that you will need to create this card:

  • Best Dad Ever Stamp Set (120399 wood, 120681 clear)
  • Ovals Collection Framelits Dies (129381)
  • Silver Basics Designer Buttons (129325)
  • Subtles Designer Series Paper Stacks (117152)
  • Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze & Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Markers (119700)
  • Baja Breeze Classics Stampin’ Pad (126960)
  • Baja Breeze Card Stock (111352)
  • Whisper White Card Stock (100730)
  • SNAIL Adhesive (104332)
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)
  • Glue Dots (103683)

I started with a Baja Breeze card base cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.  I cut a panel of the Perfect Plum Subtles DSP Stack to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and I adhered it to the card base with SNAIL.  Then I cut a strip of the Wild Wasabi Subtles DSP Stack to 1/2″ x 5″, cut an angled end and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.  Next, I colored the tie images from Best Dad Ever stamp set with my Stampin’ Write markers and stamped the images on Whisper White card stock.  Then I stamped the sentiment below the ties in Baja Breeze ink and I cut the stamped images out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Die.  I cut a second oval from Baja Breeze card stock, adhered it to the stamped oval with SNAIL and adhered the layered ovals to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish the card, I adhered a Silver Basics Designer Button to the card front using Glue Dots.

  1. Love that you used our colors for a masculine card. The ties look great in these spring colors and the oval framelits are a great shape to show them off. Thanks for sharing with us at Fab Friday.

  2. Love the colors in this challenge! None of the guys in my life wore ties for anything but special occasions – but this is still a very cool stamp and card! TFS!

  3. Wow, not a combo I would have thought to make a man card with but you’ve made it work so well! Great job and I love the button accent! THanks for playing at Fab Fri!
