Getting Crafty With Blueberry Bushel Ink
The Blueberry Bushel colour is from Stampin’ Ups!® Regal colour family, a returning colour favourite during the Stampin’ Up! colour refresh. It is a vibrant, eye-catching shade of blue and is becoming a firm favourite of mine! In today’s card I have used Blueberry Bushel cardstock and stamped the sentiment with it.

Step-by-Step Tutorial: Creating a Father’s Day Card
What you need:

- Paper: Let’s Go Fishing Designer Series Paper
- Other: Alphabet A La Mode dies, 2-3/8″ circle punch, Multipurpose glue, Paper Trimmer
Father’s Day Fun Fold Card Recipe
- Begin with a 30 cm x 30 cm piece of patterned paper. TIP: a pattern without direction works best.
- Score the sheet at 5 cm, 10 cm, 20 cm & 25 cm.
- Cut the whole sheet in half (15 cm), perpendicular to the score lines.
- Put one aside to make another card later.
- Mark on both short sides with a pencil at 3.8 cm. Line this mark up in the trimmer with the SECOND score line on both sides (10 cm and 20 cm) and slice off two triangles.
- Adhere a 14.5 cm x 9.5 cm piece of Blueberry Bushel to the middle inside of the patterned paper.
- Stamp a 14 cm x 9 cm piece of Basic White cardstock at the top with a Father’s Day sentiment in Blueberry Bushel and a fish image at the bottom. Adhere to the Blueberry Bushel cardstock layer.
- Fold your triangle pieces along the score line, fit over the front folding card opening on one side and adhere. Repeat on the other side.
- Punch 4 Basic White circles. Score two down the middle. Fold each one in half.
- Using a full circle, adhere one of the folded circles to one side of the circle. Repeat with the other folded circle on the other side.
- Adhere the final circle to the top, sandwiching the pieces together.
- Decorate the slider with alphabet letters and an image from the Gone Fishing stamp set.
- Carefully insert one side of the card front sides into the middle of the circle slider. Repeat on the other side. The card front is now ‘locked’ closed and the slider will need to be moved up or down to be removed and the card can be opened.
This Father’s Day, let’s celebrate the incredible dads in our lives by connecting on a deeper level and showing them how much they mean to us.
