Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a fun card and matching gift bag just right for dad. Father’s Day is coming up fast so why not create something special just for him.
- Ann Butler Designs Crafter’s Ink – Aquamarine, Canyon, Desert Sand
- Ann Butler Designs for Unity Stamps – 1″ Doily Picnic, l” Leaves All Over
- Spellbinders dies
Using the 1″ stamps it’s easy to create a variety of patterns. Simply ink the stamps and rotate them on the cardstock to create different looks.
Once I stamped a number of images, I cut them into 1″ strips. for dimension I inked each strip with Canyon Ink and adhered them to layers of white and kraft cardstock. A die cut oval was centered the card and #1 Dad was stamped with Canyon Ink.
The Gift Bag was created the same way. I just inked the edges of the kraft cardstock with Desert Sand and also the edges of the gift bag when I was done. A Spellbinders phrase was added atop the center ovals and ribbon tied the bag closed.
This bag is perfect for adding a little something for dad – perhaps a favorite candy bar, or tickets to a show, or even cash. But it’s also a great little gift bag for the upcoming graduate – don’t you think?
Thanks for stopping by today.
