Father's Day Inspiration

What better way to show your Dad how much he means to you than giving him a handmade card for Father's Day this year.

Sail Away Stamp JGS520

Debbie has sprayed some White Card with a mix of the Fabric Spray Paints which are great for paper craft too. When dry she has printed the sail boat (Sail Away JGS520) and coloured with water based pens.

She die cut an aperture from the front of the A5 Card Blank and then attached the stamped image to the inside of the card so that the boat shows from the front. Debbie then printed the words she wanted using Word on her computer and then printed it onto the Printable Acetate in the same way you would onto a piece of card.

Debbie advises leaving the Acetate to one side for a while just to allow the ink to "set" as it's slightly tacky when it comes out of the printer.

She then cut the Acetate to fit and attached it to the inside of the card with Ultra Clear Double Sided Tape. Cut another piece of White Card with the aperture to fix over this just to hide the tape and make it look neater.
