Today we are going to show you how to make 6 cards quickly and easily with a few of our new handsome products! Father’s Day is Sunday, June 21st and now is the time to start making a card for dear old dad, your favorite uncle, brother or son. We created a whole set of crafting items for this very purpose!
Come make these cards with us!
Our Handsome Collage Card Toppers https://annagriffin.com/product/handsome-collage-card-toppers/ and Handsome Cards and Envelopes https://annagriffin.com/product/handsome-cards-and-envelopes/ are just the thing for making masculine cards! Here are a few examples of cards we love.
Let’s make some cards! You can take your toppers to the next level by adding fancy diecuts to the front of a card.
Then, complete it with your favorite collage card topper.
Another thing you can do to elevate your toppers is to fussy cut one and add it to another to create a dimensional layer.
First, use your craft knife to remove pieces of your diecut.
Use foam adhesive to create dimension.
Use the included sentiments to change the one on your diecut if needed.
Finish your card with a few embellishments for a handsome card.
Let’s make another card!
Start by choosing a card that coordinates with your topper.
Add the topper to your card, and fussy cut another one to add on top.
Add the layer with foam adhesive.
Add an embellishment to create the perfect sending well wishes card.
Use your Handsome Cardstock https://annagriffin.com/product/handsome-12×12-card-stock/ to create incredible scrapbook pages and cards!
Now, let’s make a few cards with this handsome double sided card stock. First, make a 5×7 card and then add a 4.875″ x 6.875″ layer to the center.
Choose another pattern and die cut a frame layer. Add to your card with foam adhesive.
Cut a decorative strip from the dress shirt cardstock and adhere diecut borders to the sides.
Add to the middle of your card with foam adhesive.
Add a sentiment and a fussy cut dress shirt to the front of the card.
For our next card, we used the money pattern from the Handsome Cardstock and added a diecut layer using our Card Front Dies and foam adhesive.
Fussy cut another Card Front layer in another pattern. Fussy cut the shirt panel and add to the card with foam adhesive.
Add a gold bow tie for more dimension.
Finish your card with a sentiment that says You’re the Best.
