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.
I loved the concept of the cut outs and will be doing that again and again with different shapes! I’ve added this card to my Sendcere account so click here if you’d like to send it to your dad too!
