It's Jessica back again today - and it's a perfect day to share a Father's Day card! Mind you, this card could be a birthday card for dad too!
For this project, you are going to need the following supplies/tools:
Embossing Folder (brick style)
Cricut "superhero" cut
Nuvo Adhesive Pen - Large
Dark Brown Cardstock
White Card Base
Sand Paper, Rubbing Alcohol
Stamps - dad, My Hero, Happy Father's Day, etc
First, take a piece of 4"x5.25" Ruby/Gold Glossy Rinea foil and run it through your brick style embossing folder. Turn it over so the gold side is showing and locate the center (approximately). I scored an "x" in the middle and cut out from there, creating my "explosion" opening. You are going to want your super hero to poke through! You don't have to open it up completely now - you can customize it once it overlays our superhero! I used sandpaper to lightly sand the bricks - it gave them a nice aged look. Once you are done that, you can set it aside for now.
Using a Criuct (or other electronic cutter/die cutting machine), cut your "superhero" image. I used a "super"dad image - but you could definitely use any superhero image you wanted to - a symbol, etc. I used the Ruby/Ruby Starstruck to cut this part out. I just roughly sized it so it would fit in my opening.
TIP: When using a Cricut mat, use one that is not overly tacky as you don't want to rip the layers of foiled paper apart!
Using a smaller tag punch, cut a tag from your Mocha/Gold Glossy foiled paper. Then, stamp your sentiment with Ghost Ink. I used some letters to spell out "Dad' and added a "My Hero" sentiment as well. Once it is dry, gently rub with Rubbing Alcohol and a cloth to remove the "color" part of the foil! Isn't that cool? I wanted it to look sort of rustic, so I didn't remove all the color.
Final step is assembly! Attach your superhero die cut to the dark brown background using the liquid glue pen, then attach your brick Foiled Paper overtop using the same glue. At this point you could tear your opening larger to accommodate your superhero size. Use a dimensional foam square to pop your tag sentiment up and tie a small piece of twine to the tag. Attach the entire panel to you card base and voila!
A perfectly super card for your "Superhero" :)
Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!
