Masculine Cards with Lisa Harrolle- Father’s Day Shaker

Erika General

Hi everyone,  Lisa Harrolle here again!  So happy to be invited back to Catherine's blog today to share this fun Father's Day shaker card.

I absolutely love the Buffalo Plaid Background stamped in any color, don't you?  I find a lot of times when I go create a masculine card, my instinct is to reach for dark, brooding colors.  Browns, blacks, grays and navy are my go to masculine colors.  Today I went a different route and chose Sage green for a softer, more natural, organic base for this card.

First, I stamped the Buffalo Plaid Background onto Premium White cardstock using Catherine Pooler's Sage ink.Using the Wood Slice die, I cut out a window in the plaid card front.Lining up the card front with a Premium White, top folded card base, I lightly traced the cut circle with a pencil.

Using the Hey Mister stamp set and the pencil line as a guide, I stamped the wood slice image onto the white card base, using Sand Castle and Over Coffee ink. I stamped the bear image from the Wild About You Stamp set in the center of the stamped wood slice with Black Jack ink.

I assembled the shaker by adding clear transparency to the back of the plaid panel, then adding dimensional tape around it. Before adhering the panel to the card front, I sprinkled some Motor City Sequins Mix into the shaker window along with some little stamped and diecut paw prints.  

To accent the card front I stamped and diecut the wood ring and used it as a frame for the shaker window.  I also stamped and diecut some more paw prints and two arrows from the Hey Mister stamp set. The sentiment from the Hey Mister stamp set was embossed with silver embossing powder onto midnight card stock and then adhered to the front under a stamped “happy”. I topped this card off with some black and white baker's twine.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Have an awesome day!
