Early/Late Father’s Day Card

Early/Late Father's Day Card

I’m afraid it’s too late to send a Father’s Day card to my dad in Belgium (we celebrate on March 19th in Antwerp), but way too early to send one to my American father-in-law. At least I have another card ready to be used!

I turned Jen del Muro’s March Sketch For You to Try on its side and pulled colors from BasicGrey’s Marjolaine collection. The argyle pattern is what made me decide to create a masculine card. The Lovely Labels 3 image was a great match. I stamped it with Not Quite Navy ink on white card stock and colored it in with a light tan marker. The Tech Talk sentiment was stamped directly onto green patterned paper and cut out with a circle Nestabilities die.

Thanks for stopping by!

    This stopped me in my (google reader) tracks for being such a great card that I had to come by and tell you how much I love it! Colors, layout, images, texture…all are perfect together!!

    I agree with Stephanie, this card is so classy and a great masculine card! I love the subtle patterns and great details.

    Every day is father’s day and I think your dad would love it any time. Don’t wait. Send it. It’s beautiful.
