Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and with Father’s Day just around the corner today I thought I would share 2 very different Father’s Day card ideas. One is a more rusty and grungy Dad card and the other is a simple, fun and flashy shaker card. Here are all of the details.

Creative Embellishments Chipboard Used:

DAD Shaker
Typewriter Keys Stamp
Circle Doodle Frames
Grunge Gear Corner

Other Products Used:
Cardstock- White, Kraft
Distress Oxide Ink- Cracked Pistachio, Walnut Stain, Aged Mahogany, Fossilized Amber
Archival Ink- Jet Black
Paper Distresser
Water Mister and Craft Mat
Embossing Pad
Copper Embossing Powder
DecoArt Acrylic Paint- White, Black, Ivory
Spiegelmom Scraps Sequins Mix
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L- E-Z Runner Ultra, Adhesive Dots Medium, Dual Tip Glue Pen, 3D Foam Circles

For the first card I covered the doodle circle frame with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink, then added just little bits of copper embossing powder. Next I covered the gear corner in a mixture of watered down Distress Oxide Ink colours. Then dried it with a heat gun.

The card base is white cardstock, 5×7 in size. Then cut a kraft cardstock card front. Distress the edges, ink and then add drips of watered down ink down the front of the card. Let dry. Add the chipboard pieces to the card front. Stamp the letters onto ivory cardstock a couple of times using black ink and fussy cut out the letters you need. Add them to the card using foam circles. Finally I added a few gems for just a little shine.

My second card is a very simple design. I created an A2 white cardstock card base. Then a card front of patterned paper. I covered the shaker base with white paint, and let dry. I covered the top pieces with black paint. Let dry. Assemble the top pieces using liquid adhesive, and do the same with the bottom pieces. Let dry completely.
I then added the base pieces to the card front and secured it firmly. Add the sequins mix to the shaker parts. Then adhere the top pieces to the base. Let dry. I added a few gems just for a little masculine sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
