Father’s Day Card

Father's Day Card

I’ve finished making my Mother’s Day cards, so I thought I’d get an early start on Father’s Day cards. When I saw the Weekend Sketch challenge (#79) on Jenn’s blog a few days ago, this stamp from the All Holidays set immediately came to mind. I wasn’t quite sure what kind of embellishment to use on this masculine card, and I ended up creating a ribbon “flower” with a big manly brad. The ‘Dad’ rub-on was created with letters from the ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ sentiment in the Chit Chat package (no kidding!).

The technique I used on the Kiwi Kiss panel was today’s challenge on SCS: Embossed Wax Paper Resist. My wax paper was impressed with the Harlequin texturz plate.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I am starting my Father’s Day cards, too. I love the colors on this layout and your idea for a “manly ribbon flower.”

    I will have to look into the wax paper technique. I don’t think I’ve tried that one before.

    The ribbon flower is great and love the rub-on on the brad.

    I LOVE it!! WOW, Vera . . . this card is totally rockin’ from the awesome ribbon embellie to the funky edge on the sentiment. GREAT job!
