Father's Day 2021

 Happy Father's Day, to those who celebrate!

Being raised in a single-parent household with just my mom, Father's Day isn't really my 'thing.' But my coworker Digna asked if I could make a couple cards for her, and I really got in the Father's Day Zone this year! Here are my three 2021 designs.

I used an embossing folder to give the background panel of kraft cardstock a woodgrain texture.

For this one I kept the main panel simple, but raised it up above the card base on foam tape. This one's also an A6-sized card, too. Almost all of the cards I make are A2, so the size difference was fun to play around with.
And last but not least...
This was the last one I made, and the one I struggled the most with! I knew I wanted to play around with a gradient/ombre sentiment, but wasn't sure what to do for the rest of the design at first. I ended up using a geometric stencil in the same ink colors I used for the sentiment, and then going in to add some shine with a glitter pen.
Love that shine!

I got a bunch of large square blue envelopes from my sister a few months back (who works at a print shop and loves to recycle paper/envelopes that would otherwise be discarded), and I've been challenging myself to use them. They matched this card perfectly, but the size was I trimmed one down to fit! I think it came out quite nice. I used the same stencil and glitter pen as on the card to coordinate even better.
