Good morning everyone! Welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride and the Team Stamp It monthly Blog Hop! The theme of our Blog Hop this month is Father’s Day. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator.

To assemble, I sort of bounced around a bit but please bare with me as it’ll all make sense as it comes together. As simplistic as this design was, it fought even me every step of the way. It’s not impossible but it was pretty challenging but I found some really great tips and tricks in it’s complication. Famous last words that I’ve learned the hard way as the idea popped in my head, “Oh yeah!! I’ll do that! It’ll be easy!” The sample card was no where near “easy” and it really took me a few shots on putting them together before finding a groove and finding simplistic ways to put this one together.
I started off by punching and die cutting all of the pieces to this card and our standard A2 Cardbase in Garden Green Cardstock.
I spritzed the Crushed Curry Cardstock with the Stampin’ Spritzer and ran the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder through my die cutting/embossing machine and allowed the Cardstock to dry. Once dried, I adhered the embossed matte base to the Garden Green Cardbase.
I adhered the “Father’s Sentiment” to the Tailored Tag Punched piece first. To adhere the apostrophe, I used my Silicone Craft Sheet, a small dab of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and my Take Your Pick Tool to adhere it down.
I glued the DSP to the embossed Matte Base. I assembled the two Stitched Nested Dies together using Stampin’ Diminsionals and attached them to the DSP with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Once I got the Stitched Nested pieces in place on the DSP, I used Stampin’ Diminsionals to attach the Tailored Tag Punch piece to the Stutched Nested Dies and then adhered the “Happy” and “Day” sentiments to the Stitched Nested Dies with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I used the sentiments from the A Good Man Stamp Set for the inside Cardbase.
