My Father’s Day card features the Alphabest Bundle. It’s a great stamp set for creating that perfect sentiment. I wanted this Father’s Day card to have the look of a message board.
To create this fun and quick card, I started with a piece Sahara Sand cardstock for the cardbase. I cut a piece of He’s the Man DSP and adhered to the cardbase.
To create the message board I scored a piece of Basic White Cardstock on the short side every 1/4″. Next, I used the Fabulous Frames Dies and Early Espresso cardstock to create the frame for the message board. I used Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the frame to the Basic White cardstock, then trimmed it to the size of the frame. To give it a little more stability before adding the letters, I cut a piece of Foam Adhesive sheet and attached it to the back of the Basic White cardstock.
I stamped the letters in Early Espresso and Cajun Craze and punched them out with the Best Label punch. Using a bone folder I gently cured the ends of the letters and attached them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also added a few Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots. Then I peeled the backing off of the Foam Adhesive sheet to attach it to the cardbase.
On the inside of the card I added a piece of Basic White Cardstock and stamped this fun image from the He’s All That stamp set. I used a piece of Masking Paper to cover up part of the sentiment before stamping it. I’m so happy that Stampin’ Up! added Masking Paper to the tools in the new Annual Catalog! I will definitely be using it a lot.
Alphabest Stamp Case Tip:
I shared this tip on Instagram and thought it was worth sharing here for everyone. The graphic in the stamp case is confusing for me. I was mixing up some of the letters and numbers.
To fix this, I cut a shipping label to 5″ x 6-7/8″. I put as many of the stamps as I could fit, in the order that I wanted, on the largest clear block and stamped the label. Put the few remaining stamps on a clear block and stamped them.
Then with the backing still on the label slipped it into the case over the graphic of chaos. When I put the stamps in the case they are backward but it’s much easier for me to find the letter or number I’m looking for.
I hope you enjoyed my project and the Tip for the Alphabest stamp case today! For more inspiration from the Luv 2 Stamp Group Blog Hop Team, click on the image below to visit the talented Patty Bennett! Don’t forget to continue following links on each blog to see everyone’s projects!
