Welcome back for another Festive Friday!

We’re helping you get ready for yet another holiday that’s right around the corner – Father’s Day! This isn’t just an American holiday. It is celebrated worldwide, though some countries may celebrate on a different day. Many countries celebrate Father’s Day on the 3rd Sunday in June – like here in the US. Of course, if you’re already done with your Father’s Day planning – KUDOS! You can submit your project – we’d love to see it. But if you’d like to link up something different, we have another option for you!

Looking for ideas – here’s a few:

  • Think ahead and get your Father’s Day projects done now! Wouldn’t it be great to not have to rush a last minute idea?
  • Already set for Father’s Day? Blue is an easy option – there’s so many great patterned papers, washi tapes, and inks that will help you bring blue into the forefront of a project! Go for monochromatic, or make it the star color in your design – either works!
  • CASE one of the DT projects and add your own twist to our designs. Of course, if you blog about it, we would love for you to mention the Designer as your inspiration for your project. Here’s links to all of the Designers:

Here’s my take:

Party Plan

(your step-by-step guide to CASE-ing this design – click the images for a larger slideshow)

  1. Score the card base at 4 1/4″. Adhere the Robin’s Egg CS and set aside.
  2. Adhere the washi tape to pieces of 80# Solar White CS.
  3. Set up the coordinating dies on the washi tape and diecut the flowers. 
  4. Stamp the background on another piece of 80# Solar White CS using Sea Glass ink.
  5. Adhere the stamped background to the card base.
  6. Stamp the sentiment in the lower right with Nocturne Versafine Clair.
  7. Add the diecut washi flowers using foam adhesive. Trim any overhanging florals.
