Stampendous Fathers Day Card

This tutorial was a design taken straight from Stampendous' stamp catalog... I just loved the card so much, I had to show you all how to make it!

Now get your supplies ready:

1. Take your main card color and cut it to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" (mine is 8 1/2 x 11" cut in half).

2. Fold it in half and ink the edges (I used nutmeg Bazzill and Chocolate CTMH Ink).

3. Take a second color and cut it just a bit smaller than your card (I used green at 3 7/8 x 5 1/8")

4. Take a third color and cut it smaller than your second (I used tan at 3 9/16 x 4 7/8")

* I am only telling you measurements after the fact, since I usually "eye ball" everything.

5. Be sure to ink your edges....

6. Take your second and third colors, adhere them to each other, then tie your ribbon to the top.

7. Cut a 1 1/2 x 4 1/4" strip and ink it for your title's mat.

8. Cut another strip with a new color to 3 9/16 x 1 1/4" for your title.

9. Stick all your papers down and Stamp your title.

10. Take some mini clothes pins and ink them.

11. Take scraps of your three accent colors and stamp backgrounds on them like so.

12. Then stamp the outline to your ties.

13. Cut your ties out with scissors.

14. Use the clothes pins to clip them to the ribbon at the top.

... And WAH LA! Cute isn't it!?

PS... you do not necessarily have to use this stamp set - this is a great design template for any theme, color or celebration... I hope to show you more cards in the future using this tutorial that have nothing to do with Fathers Day or stamping at all to show you the versatility.
