If you are following along you should have come here from Ginny's Blog. If not, head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to start at the beginning.
I decided to use a new stamp set just released from Lawn Fawn called So Jelly to create a Father's Day card . I thought the ribbons in this kit would coordinate perfectly with the tropical theme of the stamp set. I stamped and colored the images in with my Gansai Tambi watercolors onto Canson 140lb cold press watercolor paper. I added some clear Wink of Stella after they dried. I then cut the critters out with coordinating dies.
I created a blue ombre ocean backdrop with Tim Holtz Distress inks in Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass onto white cardstock. I cut it out with a nesting die set from MFT. I also created a frame out of the same white cardstock with the same die set. I die cut waves from MFT translucent velum with the new Lawn Fawn Waves die and layered them on top of the backdrop. I cut out sand from MFT Natural cardstock with a SSS stitched hill border die and placed that on the bottom. I then stamped my sentiment onto the sand which is from a Clearly Besotted stamp set. I then added my critters to the scene. I added some translucent enamel dots for bubbles next to the critters. I finally added my frame to the top.
I cut out Lawn fawn patterned paper with a MFT stitched Blueprint die and matted it onto a Natural cardstock base. I then wrapped Checkerboard Satin Turquoise ribbon and Summer Fun Diamond Print Grosgrain all from the Really Reasonable Ribbon June kit around the matted base. I then added my underwater framed image to my base with foam tape. As a final touch I added a knotted ribbon tie to the top of the frame with the same Really Reasonable Ribbon mentioned above.
I really like how this card turned out. I hope my dad enjoys it when it arrives in the mailbox on Father's Day. Now head on over to Bonnie's Blog which is the next on our hop. Have a wonderful crafty day.
