Father's Day Card {Waffle Flower Crafts}

Hi friends!

Happy Saturday!  I am just popping in to share a Father's Day card that I created with Waffle Flower Craft's Hey Mr. stamp set.   Hey Mr. is such a great masculine set, and I adore the graphic tool set that Nina designed.

Using the tool images, I was able to stamp a pattern that looks just like a piece of patterned paper and I snapped a few pics along the way to show you how.

First I arranged the tools on my craft mat in a block formation.  I used the gridlines on my mat to ensure that the tools were straight and squared up.  Next I placed my acrylic block on the stamps and picked them up.

Next, I pressed the stamps into an ink pad and stamped them repeatedly.  I started in to bottom right corner and moved left before moving up the card.  I took care to stagger the stamped image to create a more interesting pattern.    I used a piece of printer paper under my project to catch the stray stamped images. 

I stamped the sentiment on a green bordered label that I had in my stash.  I trimmed the stamped panel and wrapped some twine around it in an "X" formation before adhering it to a kraft card base.  I trimmed the edge of the label and adhered it to the card with foam tape. 

Well that's all for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
