Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! This month’s theme is dedicated to the special guys in your life. My dad’s birthday is this month as well as Father’s Day here in the U.S. so I really wanted to make a special card for him! I got to play with the World of Good Suite Collection for this card and love all the beautiful elements!

I love all the layers and textures on this card. It’s something totally out of my norm, but I really enjoyed the process of creation. It took over an hour to make, but my video is condensed into about 16 minutes.
I had no idea what I wanted to create when I started and just kind of played around until this idea started forming. You can notice two of the globes on this card, one is from the sticker sheet in the memories and more card pack from the suite collection. The other is also partially from the sticker pack… check out my video to see how I made it!
I love this torn vellum look with the gold fibers. This was so different, but so fun to make! It looks like the world is bursting through the vellum.
The black cardstock with the gold foil grid is also from the memories and more card pack, as well as the Cinnamon Cider DSP. I ran that through the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder to give it some texture and then used a sponge dauber to distress.
I am so pleased with this card and can’t wait to give it to my father at his Birthday/Father’s Day party! Can you tell there’s lots of layers to this card? I probably used 30 dimensionals! Okay, maybe that’s a stretch… or is it…? Watch the video and comment on this post or the video with your guess!
I’m also working on my hand lettering. I haven’t used Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Write Marker in Basic Black to letter before, but I think with a little more practice it will work beautifully!
A couple additional stickers from the memories and more card pack and this card is done! I love how it turned out! Check out my YouTube video below to see it comes together, and to check out my tricks sprinkled throughout the video! Don’t forget to…
