I feel like the white rabbit. Always late to the party. I swear one day I’ll get my act together but if you’re a long time follower of the blog then you know that I’m probably late posting ideas 95% of the time. This one is no exception. Father’s Day has come and gone but I was determined to still get this post up and not save it for next year.
I made a stencil for Father’s Day that was intended to go with a set of cookies. Popsicle cookies to be exact. It says One Cool Pop. Brilliant right? Well those cookies never happened and I didn’t list the stencil on time in my shop so I was just going to let it go until next year. Then an idea came into my head to use the stencil to make a Father’s Day card for my dad and I had the perfect stamp set to go with the stencil.
It’s been my intention all along when I started selling stencils to show how they work not only for cookies but for crafting as well. Crafting holds a special place in my heart because I got started with it as a young girl with my mother. She always loved to craft and I wanted to help her. I have fond memories of us making things together.
So I had to send my dad an e-card (gasp, just kidding) so that he received a card on the day of but this one is making it’s way to him. Better late than never. That’s like a motto I live by a lot.
I love how it came out. I filmed a process video while making the card. It captures an epic fail that I recovered from and was able to salvage the card. I feel like card making is all about being flexible and changing things up when your original idea doesn’t go quite as planned.
I hope you like the card and that you enjoy the video. Supplies are listed below.
Have a great week! Also, I’d love for you to visit my shop here. The One Cool Pop stencil is listed there.
