Father’s Day is June 17th- Just a couple of weeks away and plenty of time to create something special for Dad. I decided to create a piece of art for my Dad-Something that he could display on his desk and enjoy time and time again. I have included an easy tutorial on this little project. In seven easy steps, you can create this piece of art for your Dad too…J

Thank You, Dad by Karen Jiles Supplies Cardstock: Close To My Heart, Coredinations; Corrugated Board: Bind It All; Ink: Ranger, Memento; Marker: Copic; Paint: Golden, Making Memories; Metal Embellishments, Buttons: Advantus; Stamps: Great Impressions, Stampers Anonymous; Embossing Folder: Sizzix; Dies; Sizzix, Spellbinders; Other: Formica, Ribbon.

Step One: Pull up the top layer of the Corrugated Board in various places.

Step Two: Add paint to Corrugated Board using Foam Brush. Drying time may vary. Let Dry.

Step Three: Die Cut and Emboss “Old Jalopy” truck using Coredinations cardstock. Tip: Using the Coredinations cardstock will give two color choices. Decide Placement before adhering. Set aside.

Step Four: Stamp, Die cut, and airbrush sentiment. Tip: After cutting, airbrush the sentiment as it rests in the spellbinders die.  This creates a trim around the sentiment. Set aside.

Step Five: Stamp the painted corrugated board and age with vintage photo ink. Age with Foam Applicator or direct to board with ink pad.

Step Six: Age all die cuts using vintage photo ink.  Apply to corrugated board.

Step Seven: Add metal embellishments, ribbon, and sentiment using glue gun.
