ICS Blog Hop It's A Guy Thing

Woo Hoo it's the first Wednesday of the month you know what that means RIGHT? ICS Blog hop time! Our theme this month of June is It's A Guy Thing!  I also wanted to showcase some of the brand new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog items!  Enjoy the hop and feel free to leave us some love in the form of a comment, we love hearing from you!

I needed to make my Dad's Father's Day card since it's coming up quick!  Every year my Dad and I go to the Indiana State Fair just the two of us.  Even though I don't live in the state anymore I take a trip to visit to continue our tradition.  We eat our way through the fair and enjoy all the buildings, displays, animals, and projects.  Most importantly we enjoy the daughter & father time together!  With that in mind, I wanted to make his Father's Day card this year in a country/farm theme.  The new Heartland stamp set was the perfect match for this theme.

Card base is Night of Navy  - 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2"
DSP layer (new Wood Textures DSP!!!)- 4" x 5 1/4"

Very Vanilla layer inside - 4" x 5 1/4"

I stamped the tractor in Night of Navy on a scrap of Very Vanilla and cut it out with the largest square from the fabulous Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The Night of Navy mat is just a square of cardstock cut at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4".  

I used the always reliable Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment in conjunction with the new to me Classic Label Punch.  The brand new Mini Stampin' Dimensionals are the perfect size to pop the sentiment!

I hope you enjoyed my card!  The next stop in our blog hop is Candy!
