Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a mini slimline card I made for Father’s Day using the Dandy Day and Dandy Day Flip Flop stamp sets, along with other products from Lawn Fawn. These two stamp sets are one of my favorites from Lawn Fawn, and these cute little mice were perfect for a Father’s Day card!
Stamping and coloring
I started this card by stamping my images onto Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used the coordinating dies to cut out all the images and colored them with the following Copic markers:
Mice: W3, W1, W0, W00, R20, R00
Stems: YG01, YG03, YG17
As you can see, the coloring was simple for this card!
Creating the card panel
I used the two largest dies from Large Mini Slimline Stackables to cut out two panels from white card stock. I set aside the largest of the two and used Salvaged Patina over the Cloudy Stencil to create a background on the smaller one. Next, I cut out the letters to spell “DAD” from Oliver’s Stitched ABCs die. I did this three times for each letter and then glued the letters on top of one another so I would have some dimension on my card. Then I used the Grassy Hillside Borders dies over white cardstock to create the bottom hills. Then I blended Distress Oxide in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron over them and glued them at the bottom of the card panel.
Finishing the card
I arranged the letters onto the card along with the images. Once I was happy with the placement of everything, I glued the images down. I left the letters off so I could stamp the sentiment on the top of the card. Once the ink was dry, I glued the letters into place. Then I glued the finished panel onto the larger stitched mini slimline panel I had cut out earlier so the panel would have a nice white border. I finished the card by gluing the card panel onto a side folding card base.
I hope this card inspired you to try this stamp set for several occasions, including Mother’s Day! Here is an example of a clean and simple card I made using this stamp set for a challenge back in February. Thank you so much for stopping by! – Mona
