Happy Father's Day

This is my second card using one of the Summer stamp designs from Whiff Of Joy. The tree stump he is sitting on is from the Spring set, but can now be purchased separately.

The sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe 'Huge Father's Day Circle printable stamp set'. I resized both the large circle and the small sentiment on his sign. I stamped the image twice, and cut out the sign. I then printed the small sentiment onto plain paper in the size to fit onto the sign, i then stuck the sign over where it printed with repro glue, then popped it back through the printer to print again. I then mounted the sign onto the original image with 3D foam pads.

Wow! Sounds like a lot of work! But it's was well worth since the final result is beautiful! I just have a question... when you cut out the large circle sentiment, do you cut it out by hand?

TG said...

^^^^Diana, yes i cut the circle by hand, but the lines are printed on it to follow. But if you have a Pazzles or a Cricut with SCAL you can use that to cut Regina's templates etc, but i only have Design Studio for my Cricut, so it's good old fashioned for me.

Loveyour choices of papers. Fab card.

Thanks, Tracy. That's what I thought but it was so hard to tell since the cut looks so precise. And pardon my poor grammar in the previous comment. I often skip the preview and edit when I leave comments. And yes, I am a teacher! LOL
