Welcome back to the Make it Monday blog circle! Did you come from Alice who showed how to make Dad a mini album for Father’s Day? Her tips make it oh so easy!
Through my Scrap it Up 365 membership, I created a fun Father’s Day card with Panstoria Artisan. Here’s the sketch that was the inspiration and my finished card.
I opened a Miscellaneous 8 1/2 x 11 project to a blank page. I selected the Createwings Beach Memories kit as I love the papers in this kit and have been in a beachy mood lately.
I cut out a square shape from the blue paper and resized it to 5×7. To make the circles, I cut them out of the blue paper, revealing the white background. To get the shadow effect, select the 5×7 paper with the cut out circles and Format > Heavy Shadow. Or play with a custom shadow if you’d like something different.
I then cut a star shape out of the brown paper. I put the star on one of the circles, played with the sizing and tilt until just right. I then copy/pasted it a few times for the other circles. From there, I selected the stars in a single circle and Cut & Fill > Shapes and used the same circle shape as before. Move it over the circle and cut – what’s left is the star peeking from behind.
I then added some string, banners and a title.
