Hugs from Shelli for Father’s Day – Paper Pumpkin Alternative Project. Back for another Father’s Day project.
This time I am showing just how versatile the Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin Kit is. Don’t think it can only be used for the women in your life. By using the darker colours and avoiding the florals, you can make a lovely card for any of your men.
I decided to stick with Very Vanilla as my starting point, adding Pretty Peacock and Soft Suede inks. A small scrap of Vellum stamped with the feather image and heat embossed reflected the feather die cuts from the kit. Because Classic Ink takes a while to dry on Vellum, using Clear Embossing Power means you can heat emboss in any colour. I stamped a couple more feathers using Soft Suede on Very Vanilla and fussy cut all three of them. Oh, and I even stamped inside the card!!!
The lower part of the card uses the splatter stamp and Pretty Peacock ink. I used generational stamping to get more shades of the ink. Adding Braided Linen Trim gave a classic masculine feel to the card. I added the feathers using Dimensionals and then tied a bow to pop on top. The sentiment finished the card nicely.
