Father's Day "in the spotlight"

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

We are almost a month into Spring and everything is returning to life and blooming here in Pittsburgh. Although we have had a return of colder temps. It's supposed to warm up next week though. 
I am looking forward to opening the windows again  and letting the breeze blow through my home. It just seems to freshen things up. 

Anyway, let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I created a slimline card for Father's Day using new Slimline dies. So let's get started with some details of how I created this card. 

Design Steps:
I started my card by cutting the Rounded Rectangle Slimline shape using the 5th largest die in this collection. It measures 2 1/2" x 7 1/2".

I used a spotlight stencil from MFT to put my image in the spotlight. Stencil work is done with wild honey distress ink. Next, I stamped my sentiment at the top of the image panel. It's a single line sentiment but a little too long for this panel. So with the help of my MISTI I turned it into a 2 liner. I will stamp my Father's Day sentiment on the card inside.
I cut the Ringmaster image in the packaging colors. I thought they would work well for a Father's Day card and they are good masculine colors. For the face, hands and nose I cut in white and then colored with Copic markers- E00 skin white and E11 barley beige. For his hair, moustache and eyebrows I cut in white cardstock and colored with a cool gray 70% Prismacolor pencil and gamsol.
I wanted some background designer paper behind the image panel. This paper is from the Stampin'-Up "berry delightful" collection and used the 2nd largest Nested Stitched Rectangle Slimline die to cut. The die measures 8" x 3". I cut my white card base the same 8" x 3" size and secured the designer paper to the panel.
Now that all the elements are prepared I am ready to start card assembly. I used dimensional adhesive and attached the Ringmaster inside the spotlight. Then attached the image panel to the designer paper base.
To complete my card, I cut some stars and scattered them on the card. Well that's it for me for this post. I hope you all have a great weekend. So until next time.......God bless.
