Father’s Day cards can be tricky. While you want to capture something the man likes on the card you make for him, a Father’s Day card doesn’t always have to feature fish, golf, ties or cars. AND it doesn’t have to be brown. For this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge, I made a card that’s perfect for the active father in your life. Change up the sentiment, and it’s also perfect for ANY active, adventurous person. How cool is that?! Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for the Chrissy Larson’s challenging challenge that inspired my card:
- Seize the Day. The images on my card are from Seize the Day, a Distinktive stamp set in Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog. Not only are the sentiments in this set amazing, but the Distinktive images are perfect for layering and oh-so-fun to stamp. Here’s a look at this wonderful stamp set: As you can see when you click on the promotional flyer below, Stampin’ Up!’s Distinktive Stamps create different opacities in a single, stamped image for a gorgeous outcome: April’s Paper Pumpkin Kit will include Distinktive stamps.

- World’s Best Father. It’s the sentiment on this card that makes it special for Father’s Day – and I pulled that sentiment from one of the most versatile sets in either catalog – Itty Bitty Greetings. I punched the sentiment with the Classic Label Punch and then snipped the pointed edges off for a clean look that fit perfectly inside my landscape. Here’s a closer look at the front of my card:And here’s a look at the variety of itty bitty greetings in Itty Bitty Greetings:How many occasions can you count in this amazing set?
- Color Combination. Cards for men don’t have to be colorless. There’s nothing particularly masculine or feminine about this mix of greens and powder blue – they are bright, brilliant and a wonderful way to celebrate that adventurous someone you love. If you like this combination of Balmy Blue, Lemon Lime Twist and Shaded Spruce as much as I do, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Seize the Day, Itty Bitty Greetings Papers: Lemon Lime Twist, Balmy Blue, Thick Whisper White Inks: Lemon Lime Twist, Shaded Spruce Accessories: Classic Label Punch, Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
