✧ Father's Day Trophy Z Fold Card ✧
Good Morning / Afternoon Everyone!
Today I wanted to come and show you a Father's Day card I have made.
I decided to make a Z fold card with a little twist. I made the front panel of the card smaller than the card base and I really like the way that the card has turned out.
I have used Smoky Slate, Whisper White and Basic Black card stock as I think that it is such a classic combination.
I also added a little touch of Night of Navy card stock as a layering colour for a little something extra.
The stamp set I have used to make today's card is the Worlds Best Trophy set from Stampin' Up.
I like the font of the words in this set and the fact that it even covers step family and families in-law :)
Card base -
Basic Black card stock - 12 x 6 inches (31 x 15 1/2 cms)
Score @ 3 & 6 inches (7 1/2 & 15 1/2 cms)
Other card stock needed -
Basic Black :
1 piece @ 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches (14 x 14 cms)
Smoky Slate :
1 piece @ 2 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches (6 1/2 x 14 1/2 cms)
1 piece @ 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches (13 1/2 x 13 1/2 cms)
Whisper White :
1 piece @ 2 3/4 x 4 1/2 inches (7 x 11 1/2 cms)
1 piece @ 1 1/4 x 3 3/4 inches (3 1/2 x 9 1/2 cms)
1 piece @ 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches (14 1/2 x 14 1/2 cms)
Night of Navy :
1 piece @ 3 x 4 3/4 inches (8 x 12 1/2 cms)
1 piece @ 1 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches (4 x 11 1/2 cms)
Ink pads used -
The two smaller pieces of Whisper White card stock will be used together to make the card front piece.
On the two pieces of Whisper White card stock, stamp your design.
For my design, the trophy cup from the stamp set was stamped with the Smoky Slate ink pad. Using the stamp off and on method.
The wording "Worlds Greatest" has been stamped using the Memento Black ink pad on each trophy cup.
"Dad" was stamped using the Marina Mist ink pad.
"Father" was stamped using the Island Indigo ink pad.
Once you have finished stamping your card front. You need to cut the thinner piece of card stock into three. Each of the three pieces need to measure 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 inches (3 1/3 x 3 1/2 cms)
Cut the smaller of the two pieces of Night of Navy card stock into three also. Each square measuring 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches (4 x 4 cms)
Attach your Whisper White pieces onto their correct pieces of Night of Navy card stock using dimensional's.
Using tear and tape, attach the card front pieces to the piece of Smoky Slate card stock that measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches. (13 1/2 x 13 1/2 cms)
Now its times to build the card....
With the card base, burnish the score lines that you have made. The 3 inch score line is a mountain fold and the 6 inch score line is a valley fold.
The smaller sections of the card base should be on the left when building up the card.
With tear and tape, attach the remaining piece of Smoky Slate card stock onto the panel furthest to the left.
As well with tear and tape, attach the card front to the piece of Basic Black card stock.
Now place tear and tape on the left hand side of your card front only.
Centre the card front and press down firmly.
To finish off my card, I stamped a trophy cup onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock using a Versamark ink pad.
Sprinkle some Silver Embossing powder on top of where you have stamped, shake off the excess and set with the heat tool.
Fussy cut the trophy out and then mount onto a piece of Night of Navy card stock.
I then tied a bow with a thin silver ribbon and attach that to the trophy cup using a glue dot.
You have now made an extra special card for Father's Day :)
