A Fishing Father’s Day

 

Hi, it’s  Sue of Ully Cat’s World with an interactive Father’s Day card.


This card is made with
Karen Burniston dies focusing on the TinyTrees Pop-Up in a 3 3/4 inch x 8 3/4 inch card base. (I used a thin white card base cut 8 3/4 inch by 7 1 /2 inch folded in half and covered with four panels of 3 3/4 inch x 8 3/4 inch decorative papers.)


Cut the number of trees you plan to use and assemble using the packaging directions. Decide on placement of trees based on where they will be in the folder position. (For slimline cards the trees must be place on the center fold rather than using the offset piece which allows for trees to be added off the center card fold.) Glue down tree frames and wait until glue has set to attach trees.


Die-cut four bears (WinterAnimals) stenciling through the die with a black fine tip pen the eyes, nose and mouth. Run the stenciled bears back through the machine with the embossing mat and plate for your die-cutting machine to emboss the face and bottom feet. To make a baby bear, cut the bear just below its paws and then slide the bottom piece up under the arms and trim off excess edges. Glue together. The baseball caps are made by die-cutting the engineer’s cap from the TinyAccessories 3 die set and rounding off the puffy crown and bill of the cap. (I tried to make the logo of the recipient’s favorite baseball team on the caps.) The fishing poles are described below. Drops of Glossy Accents were added to the bears’ eyes and nose to made them standout on the dark brown cardstock.

The stream is made with a long scrap of shiny spray painted paper in blue, gold and silver that was die-cut several times using the hill die from the LongNature Edges die set. These wavy pieces were then glued to a strip of blue cardstock and fish cut from the CampingCharms die set, were added to the stream flow. The same fish were embossed, and their eyes stenciled in black ink and then glued to a piece of string or cording which was glued to the stick charm from the same die set. The rings were all cut off of the charms.




To make the bears stand under the trees inside, a small strip of green cardstock was cut and scored to form a cube. The cube is glued to both the card base and the tree frame. Then the bear is glued to the font of the cube.

Decorations to the card include one tree front with leaves and three birds cut using the dies from the Tiny Trees set, two apples from the TreeFruit set, and a white blanket from the PicnicElements set. The blanket could be used to write a personal message on.



The “Happy Father’s Day” was cut three times from thin cardstock using KarenBurniston’s Alphabet dies. The layers were glued together and then glued to the front of the card using a T-ruler to keep the letters in a straight alignment.

Hope this fun card has provided some inspiration for your crafting. 😊
