Splat Island Golf Green Father's Day Card

And here is my second Father's Day card...this one is for the hubs...the golfer in my life! Too bad I can't add two tickets to where ever this fab place is, and it's probably the hardest green on the planet! I think Jack Nicklaus would be proud! On this one, I used Tim's Sizzix Splat Thinlit in a totally different way, as well as the Beach Sidekick Order. The Splat totally spoke golf to me the first time I saw it on his FB Live. I can never have enough golf goods in my stash since my household is full of golfers. I had way too much making this one, and it came together fast. I know the hubs will love this card.
I die cut the Splat with Kraft Core Nostalgic Cardstock, and the ocean is Metallic Jewel Cardstock.
Aren't the Pennants from Tim and Stamper's Anonymous super fun?!! So many uses. I stamped the banner in Barn Door Archival from Ranger onto Specialty Stamping Paper. The #1 and dad sentiment is from a Pegz set. I used the smallest circle punch for the golf ball.
Using the mini Texture Fade from the Beach Sidekick Order, I embossed with it many times onto the blue metallic cardstock. It created some flat spots since I embossed so many times, but that mostly gets covered up. I didn't have a larger folder with me, so I had to make due. Sadly, I didn't have any sand paper with me to rough up the raised designs...go figure! I also embossed the golf ball with the Dot Matrix Fade. I hand cut a pole for the flag, and die cut all the tiny palms with more Nostalgic Cardstock. I also hand cut a tee from SSP and inked over it with Barn Door, cut a mound for the tee box on the mainland, and made a slit in it for the tee to slip into.
The golf green island, palms, and sun got a thin coating of Distress Glitter with the Glitter that thing.

  1. Hmm - that looks like a pretty tricky hole to play! I'm sure he won't mind spending Father's Day trying though. Fab card!
