Hello Honey Bee friends!! Today I’m sharing my see through Father’s Day card featuring the awesome new Lovely Layers: Lures! I haven’t decided who for sure will get this card, but I know they won’t mind the less than traditional guy colors! And I think that this card would be great for lots of occasions by just changing the sentiments!

First I created the card base. I took a folded A2 card base, opened it up and trimmed all but 1″ off the top panel. I used the cut off piece to cut another 1-½” strip. Then I added some removable tape along the score line to mask off the back portion of the card. I placed the Fish Net stencil over the 1″ flap and the 1-½” strip. I used a Detail Blender brush to ink on Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink.

Next I cut a piece of acetate to A2 size. I placed a strip of Bee Creative Double-Sided Sticky Red Tape on the back of the 1″ flap. Then I added some tape to the back of the 1-½” stenciled piece to adhere at the bottom of the acetate. To hide the adhesive when the card is open, I cut two strips of white cardstock at 1″ and 1-½” and used the tape to adhere them to the inside of the card front.

I die cut the Lovely Layers: Lures from 80# Neenah and then used blender brushes to color the pieces with Distress Oxide inks. These are the colors I used: Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold, Bundled Sage, and Wilted Violet. I die cut the eyes from black cardstock and the hooks from silver metallic cardstock.

I used Bee Creative glue to adhered the layers and pieces together. I used just a few tiny drops of glue to adhere them to the card front.

I stamped the sentiments from the One Of The Guys stamp set with Intense Black ink. After I cut the large sentiment out with the coordinating die and trimmed the other into a strip, I added foam tape strips to the back to pop them up on the card.

I truly did not mean to make this guy card with these less-than-traditional masculine colors! Haha! But sometimes you just have to go with the colors that are calling you, right? I like it, and sure hope you do too! Thank you so much for stopping by today–you are so appreciated!

P.S.: If you are on Instagram, I will have a reel on my Instagram posted sometime this morning! Stop by to take a look at a bit of my card making process!

    What a gorgeous card! I love the non-traditional colors for a guy, and I think the men will too. It’s so bright and fresh, how could they not?! And thanks for the detailed instructions on how you made it, very helpful.
