A quick last minute card for Fathers Day

Here's a quick and easy last minute card for Father's Day that uses just one stamp, some black and white card and a coloured ink.

Stamp Set: Occasional Greetings
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Gray, Real Red
Other: Craft knife, Stamp-a-ma-jig

I started by stamping the main sentiment on the Whisper White front layer, at an angle, in prime position. I then cut this out using a craft knife and using the stamp-a-ma-jig, stamped the sentiment in rows around the aperture using Basic Gray to give a newsprint look. Using the aperture layer as my template I pencilled where the window should appear on the black card front and cut this out with the craft knife just a fraction smaller than the original (about 1mm on each edge) to create a frame. The Whisper White insert was adhered to the inside back, the window pencilled in place and the stamp-a-ma-jig used to position the stamped sentiment in Real Red. All pencil marks were erased to finish.

Here's the inside - plenty of room to write your personal message to Dad.

Have a great weekend.
