Countdown to Confetti - Day 2



Hello there! Today is day 2 of the Countdown to Confetti!  The Reverse Confetti April release will be available in the Reverse Confetti store on April 8th!


Today the Confetti Crew is showcasing a new masculine set called Tie-rific, the coordinating Tie-rific Confetti Cuts, and a super awesome new Instaframe die!  I will be sharing a card using that die tomorrow.  Today, I have a fun and funky Father's Day card to share.  To make my card, I started off by taking one of the new School Days Quick Card Panels in a fun triangle geometric pattern.  I cut a window in the panel using the pinked circle die from the Flowers for Mom die set.  Then, using the circle die from the same set, I cut a window through both the pinked circle and quick card panel.  That gave me a pinked edge circle frame which I glued around the circle opening in the quick card panel.  I used my MISTI tool to position a sentiment from the Tie-rific stamp set in the middle of the circle.  I knew I wanted to pop the patterned panel up with foam tape, but I wanted the sentiment recessed behind it.  To add some more color, I added a pinked edge to the top and bottom of the patterned panel using the new Edge Essentials dies.  I stamped the tie from the stamp set in red ink on red cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating dies.  It was looking a little flat, so I added some dots with a white gel pen.

Happy Father's Day

I popped the panel up on a white card base using foam tape, and popped the tie up as well.  Since this is a masculine card, and I couldn't use sequins to accent things like I normally would, I added a few red buttons instead, and I think it's a really fun touch. :)

Happy Father's Day
