First the card - this was made with our retiring set - One Wild Ride. I really hate to see this set go, and am sure I will hold on to my personal set for quite a while, as it is an awesome set. I just repeated the motorcycle image for the background, stamping on full one toward the center as a bit of a focal point. To direct your eyes in toward the motorcycle, I did add some texture to the edge with a stamp from the set - using gray and giving it a bit of a border.
You can see how I finished the envelope above and the inside of the card below. I also used the "Happy Father's Day" image from our current sent - Geared Up Garage that will be returning in the 2019 Annual catalog. Also a great, masculine set, and the ribbon from that coordinating suite of products - which unfortunately is retiring.
As my 3D project I choose to make a coordinating little treat box using the 2-4-6-8 box pattern here - (sorry a bit blurry if you need it better - let me know and I can email to you) -
This box will be filled with pistachios, as those are Paul's favorite.
Everything is adhered to the front of the box with snail - except, I popped up the motorcycle on dimensionals. I am now thinking what a cute favor this would have made for his retirement party - but alas - I did not think of that then, lol!
I hope you enjoyed these projects and got some inspiration for creating some special items for the fathers in your life. I would love it, if you would leave me a comment below.
