Hero Dad!

Today I’m sharing a Father’s Day card using KLM Digital DesignWheelbarrow Gnome from the new April 2023 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Dad, you’re someone to look up to no matter how tall I grow!” and “Any man can be a Father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad”. I know that my dad will always be my hero no matter how old I get. 🙂

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5.5″ x 5.5″ card base. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out dies, I die cut a 5″ x 5″ square out of Recollections – Black cardstock and a 4″ x 4″ square out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The black square was applied directly to the base card using double-sided tape.

The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card prior to me cutting out the 4″ square. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I decided I wanted some puffy clouds, so I printed out the image again, but this time it was printed onto regular copy paper and then I fussy cut around the top part of it. It was placed over top of the coloured image with some washi tape to secure it in place. I took another piece of paper and created a wavy background and placed that down over the image too! Then, with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and a blender brush, I proceeded to create the cloudy sky using a stencil that I had made earlier using Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Dies. Once the sky was complete, I added in the dirt path and the farm field to finish off the image. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the completed coloured image and it was popped up onto card to finish it off.
