Hats Off, Dad!

This is the time of year I make the most masculine cards. With Father’s Day coming up (and plenty of boy birthdays), I wanted to take the #TGIFC316 sketch and try it with the new Hats Off stamp set and dies.

The result was a card that reminds me of my both my father and father-in-love (a term borrowed from my friend Jan). What do you think?

Masculine cards don’t need a lot of embellishments, so once I figured out the width for the card stock strips, it didn’t take long to put together. They are all 4″ long and from the top, the widths are: 1/2″, 1-1/2″, 1″, 3/4″, 1/2″ and 3/4″. Choose any color combination you love, and I’ll put my supply list below if you want to copy it.

The stitching around the hat are from the dies and add just the right touch. TIP: Adhere your vellum to the card under the hat and you won’t see the adhesive showing through.

I think you’ll find plenty of occasions to use this very versatile hat, so order it in time to put it to use for Father’s Day!
