ID: MC June/18 - Easel Home On The Range - DAD You Are The Best card
size: 4.5"w x 4"H (easel closed)

Created: June 8, 2018

My turn on the Quietfire Digital Blog today and since it's almost Father's Day, thought I'd make a nice western card...

The font works great in emails, Word, Excel etc. I used it in my SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) 

I'm using sentiment stamps on the floor from Quietfire Design 

("I Don't Tell You Often Enough" 5pce set); 

These are the electronic cut files I'm using from Suzanne available on Silhouette. Click image to purchase.




Opened SCAL software and the Home On The Range file. Ungrouped, removed some of the items keeping the hat page and the horse page, the square and the hat and leaving all at the size opened.

Positioned the horse page and hat page. Butted up the edges to meet at the middle. Used the square and enlarged it to hide the opening of the hat page (see 1st pic above). Grouped and then selected it all. Welded (see 2nd pic above).

PS you can leave as is or flip it vertically. If left as is, the underside is the good side. Since I use white cardstock, it doesn't matter to me.

Selected the "Heart of Country" font and typed each letter for "DAD" separately. Twisted and repositioned them to overlap. Grouped them, resized to a total of 2"wide, and welded together.

Cut away the horse from the easel structure, score and fold to create the easel. 

Cut a horse page, color as desired and adhere to front of card. I colored direct to paper with Distress mini pads "Black Soot" for the horse, leaving the tail and feet white. "Tea Dye" for the ground area. I left the frame on the horse page white.

The Hat page, colored the frame with some brown and embossed with Emerald Creek Baked Texture "Dirty Sand" embossing powder. Colored the hat on the hat page with "Antique Linen" and the single hat with "Brushed Corduroy". Adhered to hat page, then onto front of card.

Colored the DAD with "Faded Jeans" and clear embossed. Adhered diagonally across frame edge.


On the floor: 

Stamped the sentiment using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Adhered square gems as my stopper.
