With Father's Day just around the corner, I thought that it would be fun to start our crafting week with the A Good Man stamp set by Stampin' Up! to make a card. Today's card could be used for Father's Day and beyond. I love this simple card because it pulls together simple stamping techniques to make a fabulous card.
A Good Man Card Making Tips
The first technique is coloring. Oh, how I love my Stampin' Blends for coloring line art images. I used Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends to color my fellows.
To add some texture to my background, I used embossing paste and my brick stencil to add some textured bricks to my card base. The is an old technique that adds a lot of punch. Simply apply the paste over the stencil, remove the stencil and allow to dry. You can speed up the drying process with your heat tool.
The third technique is super duper simple. I stamped my sentiment on 3 different card stocks and simply cut around the words that I wanted on each color. I then arranged them for a pleasing colorful display.
