King of the Grill at Sunsational Stamps

With Father’s Day coming next month, Sunsational Stamps is featuring sets which would be perfect to use for cards or layouts honoring the dads in your life.  Today I’m using the King of the Grill digital stamp set.  Here’s a look at the full set:

I had two cards in mind for this set.  It was really difficult to only make one as I loved both ideas.  Here’s the winner .  The inspiration for this card came from my blogging friend, Kelly, who is a consummate card maker.

A great card for dad...or anyone who loves to grill!

I designed this card in my Silhouette.  The base is 4 1/4″ x 7″, scored at 3 1/2″ cut from Riding Hood Red card stock.  For the greeting, I created a text to path on a 3″ circle.  The mat was made with an 1/8″ offset.  I attached this piece to the base to make a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ or A2 sized card.

I imported the grill and utensils into my design screen, sized and traced them. Then I print and cut them together with the stripe and plaid patterned paper.  The images were colored with Copic markers; C3, C5, C7, C9, 100, E33, YR18 E57 & E59.  Here’s a closer look at the coloring:

Colored with Copic markers, this grill looks so real I can almost smell the burgers!

For inside the card, I got the adorable idea for the greeting from the set.  I changed the font to match the greeting on the front and with that, the card was finished.

A cute sentiment for Father's Day, but this would also be a great thank you card after a BBQ

    Great card. The text path is something that I wish the software for the Explore did. I think they might be adding it in the future, but I love how you have used it with your Silhouette.

      I love using text to path…but sometimes I hate it because it seems to have a mind of its own. Thanks for the visit!

I'd love to hear from you. I so appreciate your comments!
