Weaved Nautical Father’s Day Card using 3D Foam Squares

Father’s Day is fast approaching. Today I’m creating a clean and simple (CAS) card with dimension using 3D Foam Squares White, Regular, perfect for the dad who loves the ocean or lives by water – a fisherman, swimmer or lake house loving guy. Authentique Papers Seafarer Collection is just what is needed. Here’s a look at my finished card.

I have my material out on the table ready to use, along with 3D Foam Squares White, Regular and my E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser to put it all together.

First, I wove part of the background. I chose two coordinating patterned papers and used a little bit of adhesive to hold the edges in place as more and more strips were added. The E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser makes this easy with its thin strips. When finished, I trimmed off the excess hanging over the edge of the card.

To adhere the cardstock stickers, I used 3D Foam Squares White, Regular. They add a little bit on dimension to this card front and can be easily mailed.

To finish, some natural burlap string in a fun knot was added as well as the word “Dad” in letter stickers.

You can use this basket weave application on any style of card. It’s also a great way to use up scraps in your stash or if you’re not a stamper. Go get crafty!

I hope all of you enjoy Father’s Day with the men in your lives. I also want to shout out to any single moms playing both roles. Thanks for stopping in today.
